What a surprise it was to run across these! Finding true vintage slacks is rare – especially any that are this old. Finding nice slacks, with their belt, hardly worn and a perfect fit is a miracle!!! Just like they were made for ME (maybe they were . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .) though I feel just like Katherine Hepburn . . . .
These are a small plaid weave in grey and ivory. They are “man-tailored” with a zip fly, front and back pockets. But, the fit is NOT man-tailored!
Notice the straight legs and cuffs. The other pairs of ’40’s pants I own have a very long crotch or very wide legs. They’re lovely fun, but I like the sexy fit of these. I suppose it’s possible that they were men’s pants, though they button in the wrong direction. But, I’ve got hips for sure, and a small waist so I would doubt it. Anyway, who cares!
I treasure mid-century blouses that are perfect with my true vintage skirts and slacks. Always on the lookout for just the right jacket and, you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . .
