Detailed Description

These fabulous 1940s style trousers feature waist coat detailing below the waistband, and excellent deep side seam pockets. Cut pleats allow room for hips and help create a beautiful drape in the fabric down the length of the leg.

These trousers fasten at the front with two buttons and a zip. As they have belt loops you can happily wear them with a belt if you so wish- but customers who like wearing braces will be delighted to learn that there are buttons sewn in the waistband specifically for that.

Investment wardrobe pieces should give you plenty of wear and these trousers are perfect as they can be adjusted as your body changes over time. In the back seam there is a 3cm seam allowance, should you need more room to move, and there is a very generous 8cm hem in the leg.

Grey/Midnight fabric composition; 38% Cotton 28% Polyester 18% Acrylic 10% Wool 5% Other 1% Spandex

Size & Fit Expertise

Suits all shapes! Really!

We are advertising this in a UK size that is consistent with sizing across our website. The Emmy size label for the Worker Pants may say something different.

If you have a large difference between your waist and hip measurements, we strongly urge you to buy the size that fits your hips, and have the waist tailored in to ensure the neatest fit.
