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

BEAUTIFUL TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S WHITE COTTON BLOUSE

IMG_1704There’s nothing like cottons from the 1960’s and before.  And, the gorgeous, lady-like styles from those past decades have never been done as well since then.  I’m always so excited to find another one!

The trims are beautifully made and the tailoring is impeccable.  Nice buttons, too.  The fit is excellent.  The fabric feels soft but substantial and lasts forever.

Although sometimes a little fussy, styles from the late 1960’s are fun and have that British flair that was popular then.  Of course, it looks great with the ribbon skirt shown yesterday or a mini, but I like them with jeans, too, or bell-bottom pants.

The new finds just keep on coming.  Groovy . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
