Made in Europe
These trousers are high waisted - going approx. 1 inch above natural waist. Trousers can be harder to fit people due to there being extra measurements to consider such as body length as well as waist, hip and thigh. However, this style has proved very popular and seems to fit people well.
The leg width isn't as wide as our 30s styles (fabric wasn't as readily available in the 40s!) but measures 56cms at the widest leg width part on our size 10.
So - we advise to choose by waist size but also to consider hip and your thigh measurement. This is not a great style for pear shapes but great for pillar shapes or inverted triangles.
Our trousers are made with fabric that has a touch of stretch in it. This means that there is some margin if your measurements don't come up exactly like our size guide.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
I absolutely love these trousers. They fit snugly and I do plan to size up the next time I order, but they also give a little with wear. The green color is amazing and the weight of the pants is perfect and feels very high quality. I ordered a UK 8 and had a 28-29" waist when they arrived, but I think I could size up to the UK 10 for a little more room even though they're very comfortable.
In case this helps someone.... Sadly these, high quality, trousers weren't for me. The material and colour are absolutely first class. They were also a perfect length for me at 5'8".I ordered a 12 going on the provided measurements, and although they did technically fit, my 'Lockdown layer' around my tummy was visible in an unflattering manner! Maybe this style would be best on a flatter middle?! Don't be put off trying them as they really are amazing trousers, just not for me at the moment.
