A splendid new addition to our 40s separates collection - these fabulous new trousers are an authentic rework of an original 1940s trousers pattern adapted for the modern figure and in modern fabric.
We have selected a new heavier crepe for these trousers - you will really appreciate the quality. Inspired by chic hollywood icon - Katherine Hepburn - who rocked the trouser suit in the 1940s.
Packed with features, this style has a wide leg with turn-up, a high waist band, side zip and fastens with a single shell-look button. The wide leg is approx 22 inches circumference. Deep pleat on the front runs into a strong and slimming crease. Style also has 2 darts on the back. Topped off with contrast top stitching - this is a fantasic and authentic style.
Key 40s features:-
- wide leg
- natural waist fit with deep waist band
- turn up
- side zip with shell-look button
- deep front pleat
- contrast top stitching on pockets & waistband
- 400gsm weight crepe fabric for beautiful drape
Fits on the natural waist with a wide waist band. So comfy.
Very wide leg style is great for dancing and was very typical in the 30s & 40s during the rise of sports casual styles.
Leg length: 32" (approx 31.5 inside seam and 0.5 into rise)
Fabric: Top qualiry rayon/poly with a touch of elastene for stretch
Care: Cool hand wash
Manufactured in the UK
These trousers fit on the natural waist but do have a nice wide waist band which can fit slightly high on some people. The fabric has some stretch but this should be considered as a comfot stretch.
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

These have become my go-to trousers. I absolutely love them. The quality is very good, the fabric is lightweight, and the cut is very flattering. I have a bit of a belly, so I usually have to wear shapewear with high-waisted trousers but not these. The waist sizing was accurate, I'm a 30" waist and the 12 is a perfect fit. Definitely too long, but I'm 5'4" so it's expected. I have them tailored and now they are perfect.
My favorite trouser style from HoF. So classy, so comfy. I am 5'8" and normally wear a 30-32" inseam pant. There's definitely some extra length to these, but I don't find it an issue because I have some shoes that work perfectly. My legs look so gloriously long, and the waist--I have a waist when I wear these! In saying that, I suggest you measure from your waist because that's where it'll matter. I also like to wear shapewear with this because I'm obsessed with the lines it creates. It lays the fabric out perfectly. Personal choice. I don't think it's needed with these trousers.
I will be buying them again in other colors.
