A splendid new addition to our 40s separates collection - these fabulous new trousers are an authentic rework of an original 1940s trouser pattern adapted for the modern figure and in modern fabric. Very Katherine Hepburn!
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 stitch on pockets & waistband
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: 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 is more a comfort stretch.
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

I LOVE these trousers. They create the most gorgeous, elongated line that is sophisticated and flattering, while still emphasising my waist and showing just the right amount of my curves. I wear them to work meetings with silk blouses and on casual days with a sweater or top. I am 174 cm tall and they come down to the perfect length when I'm wearing low-heeled boots - they are just slightly too long when wearing flats, particularly when it's when wet outside. I might have them hemmed just a centimeter or two shorter, but it's not so necessary that I did it right away. I bought a second colour immediately after buying these! Thinking about a third now...
Black trousers are my favourites as they go with anything and are suitable for every occasion, and these ones are super flattering and comfortable, that I already have two pairs of these trousers (black and burgundy) and plan to get more when they become available.
