Announcing the arrival of our new 'Landgirl Breeches' in olive corduroy!
Our own interpretation of the iconic style breeches worn by the land girls during the second world war. Whilst these are based on our best selling Plus Fours in terms of fit and fastenings - we have adapted them to reflect some of the key details seen in the original land girl breeches.
These fit on the natural waist with a deep waist band and have belt loops for a decent belt if wearer wishes. We have kept the 4 button side fastening rather than the bib front on the originals - making them look really elegant and flattering. Single back pocket keeps the lines sleek and unbulky.
Breeches are shaped to be fairly full on the thigh and narrow into a bottom cuff which laces via eyelets for personal adjustment. These are meant to side approx 4 inches from the knee but person judgement required for most flattering fit. Those with very long legs may find them more of a plus 2!

These trousers fit on the natural waist but rise high on most people. The fabric has limited stretch - this has been accommodated in the fit.
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 wanted to add an addendum to my review. I am a solid size 10 UK, but I ordered a size 12 in the breeches. This has enabled me to have a lot of "wiggle" room, with a belt, they are absolutely perfectect for everyday!
I can't believe I waited so long to review these smart, charming breeches! I can't wait for Fall and Winter to wear them again. I am a 10 in almost all HOF offerings, but I sized up to a 12 in the Landgirl Breeches. I'm glad I did as they are firm with no stretch in the waist. It was also a pleasant surprise that they look so good on my petite, less than 5ft frame.
