70's/80's Pleated Linen Trousers with Notched Waist$55.00
Wow! These rough woven vintage linen trousers are what crisp menswear dreams are made of. These have a high fitted waist with a notched waistband, perfect for tucking in blouses or layering belts. There is a classic zipper fly, with a wider hip that tapers into a slimmer ankle. Pockets at the hips. These are nice and crisp and stiff. Wash them to break them in and make them soft, or dry clean to keep them crisp. I couldn't quite pinpoint the decade on these stunning trousers - either late 1970s or early 1980s.
These have a couple of faint spots on them, but I coludn't spot treat without ruining the crisp pleat and feel of these, so I have left it to the buyer. The spots are barely noticeable.
Waistband measures 30", hip 40", rise 13", inseam 30". Can fit a modern 6/8.
This item was originally owned by Andrea W. of Greenfield NH, who once said that "Denim was the worst thing that ever happened to fashion." She collected a stunning collection of designer pieces through her life, filling up armories and closets with her excellent taste through the years. Andrea loved travel, collected straw hats, and knew a good fabric when she saw one. I will be adding more of her wonderful pieces to my shop throughout the year.
This item is sold from an excellent, highly rated vintage seller in Nashua, NH.
