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. Inspired by Katherine Hepburn's iconic trouser suite look
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 ;-)
Please refer to the table below as a size guide. Measurements are in inches.
Inside leg 32 inches, select size by natural waist measurements.
Beautiful trousers! I really like the selection of colours. I chose the khaki, as it’s not a colour that is available elsewhere. They fit really well, the material is really soft and comfortable. Hope to get a pair in the berry shade as well!
Gorgeous trousers! I own them in both Berry and Black. The berry colour is beautiful. The fabric is flowy and lightweight. They can work for 30's and 40's outfits. I've a 28" waist and the size 10 fits great. I will add other colours to my wardrobe in the future.
