These splendid pleated shorts are adapted from an original and a pattern and they are just fabulous!
Shorts are pleated throughout (3 on each side - including the centre front gusset pleat) and are the forerunner design favoured for girls' school gym shorts - nostalgic and sweet, these shorts are a perfect addition to any 30s and 40s vintage fan wardrobe and great for summer! We love them with navy and ivory.
These fit on the natural waist and have a single shell button fastening with a short zip.
- 4 pleats
- top stitching detail
- side zip & shell button
- deep gusset
These are a mid weight fabric, warm but breatheable. Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.
These have been painstakingly researched and are adapted from an original 1930s pattern with further inspiration taken from an original pair of ladies tennis shorts.
Length: approx 43cm to 48cm relating to size *longer on higher sizes

We advise to choose by your waist size. There isn't any stretch in the waist but you can move the button if needed.
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 am extremely disappointed with the inconsistent sizing of these shorts. These run a whole size smaller than the black version of the same shorts. My friend and I both wear the black shorts in a 12, and purchased the tan ones in a 12 (although I bought directly via HoF and she bought from a different retailer). We have the same measurements and both found that these tan shorts fit like a size 10. As an Australian customer the return process is extremely inconvenient and expensive. If there had been a disclaimer stating that this colour ran small it would have saved me a lot of hassle because I would have simply got the size up. I hope this review saves other customers the same hassle. I will not be a return customer in the future as sizing problems like this are too expensive to fix as an overseas customer.
Fabulous shorts, fit perfectly (size 12) and very flattering/comfortable! So authentic to the era, very Katherine Hepburn! Great colour too, all round would recommend! I bought them as part of a larger order though, and sent to where I live in EU, but the VAT tax was much higher than the 20 percent deducted on the website! Just a warning for EU customers to, for larger orders, be prepared to pay a good deal more!
