VERY UNUSUAL DISCOVERY: TRUE VINTAGE 1940’S WOMEN’S(?) SLACKS BY THE HAGGAR COMPANY!!!

VERY UNUSUAL DISCOVERY:  TRUE VINTAGE 1940'S WOMEN'S SLACKS!!!

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 . . . . . . . . . . . . .
