This style is taken from an original pair we found in Paris. They are made by a tailor so have the year 1934 inside them. How's that for designing direct from history?
The wide belt loops are a celebration of what was new in style...belts! These are a real fashion forward trouser, and, most likely a young man's trouser. (Older men were slow to trust a belt, and for awhile some men would wear both the fashionable belt and the trusty braces)
We found a really similar pair in the Sears catalogue, it's youthful design suggested in the name. Another point to note is that they are drawn very wide, like Oxford bags, but in fact the measure at the hem matches our pattern.
Our pattern has been tweaked to fit better, as the original had some quirks, and now we have them available in our sturdy, medium weight fabric that has proved so popular with our dancers.
