Part of our new 'Marlene' androgynous 1930s separates collection - this stunning new trousers were a labour of love.
Produced in a luxury cashmere blend pin stripe from iconic Yorkshire Mill - AbrahamMoons.
Inspired by Marlene Dietrich's iconic and daring masculine look in the 1930s, these are based on peg trousers from our brother Cousin Jack and have been adapted for the feminine figure. You will not find details like this in a normal trouser and we are thrilled with the result. We are sure you will be too!
Note the high waist with integrated belt feed through loops which you can use any slim belt with. Also has two side pockets. Deep front pleats and wide leg with turn up. Pair with the marlene waistcoat or any of our blouses or knitwear.
The wide leg is approx 21 inches circumference. Deep pleat on the front runs into a strong and slimming crease.

These trousers fit on the natural waist but rise high on most people. The fabric has no stretch - this has been accommodated in the fit/
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

Gorgeous trousers. A fabulous fit: I got an 8, a little large around the waist, as I find with most trousers, but this is easily solved by a thin belt (there are subtle loops) or a pair of braces/suspenders. Not too long -- I can easily wear a pair of either flats or heels without them looking too long or too short.
The fabric is exceptionally soft and luxurious (and great to have it in that early-20th-century blue pinstripe which you just never see available anymore!), whilst also feeling very durable. They look great with the waistcoat and a nice shirt and tie -- many compliments vouch for the fact!!
After much anticipation and shipping delays because of COVID, I was afraid to even open the HOF box with the Marlene navy pin stripe Trousers and Waistcoat when it reached me here in the US. (Then summer happened.) Now that it’s cooler, I just opened the box and tried everything on, and the trousers fit beautifully. I am consistently a 10 in HOF, 34-28-37, but I could have gone up a size for a less fitted look in the trousers. The navy is a very rich, dark color. The fabric is heavy enough for winter but light enough for fall and early spring. The trousers and waistcoat aren’t cheap, but this set is something you keep for life!
