Authentic 1940s Grey Pinstripe Fishtail Back Trousers


Size guide


Superior Quality Authentic 1940s Grey Pinstripe Fishtail Back Trousers

The stylish trousers are based on an original pair of CC41 1940s fish tail backs we acquired.

This style of trouser was worn by men of all ages throughout the 30s and through to the early 50s. They sit high on the waist compared to modern pants and are commonly worn with button braces. The fish tail back is a classic feature and these also have the magic 22" trouser bottom circumference. There are pleats into the waist but due to cost and fabric restrictions during this era, these trousers are fairly lean on fabric compared to bags.

We are told these are supremely comfy and great to dance in.

Key Features include:- 
- high/natural waist 
- buttons attached for braces if required 
- turn up 
- 2 side pockets 
- 1 front change pocket
- back flap pocket

Inside leg is approx 32".

Customer Questions

  • Q: I have a longer leg than a 32. Therefore, would I be able to let the turn ups down in order to accommodate to, roughly guessing, a 33/34 leg?

    A: If you wanted to let the turn ups down you'd have an extra 3" of fabric. Hope that helps. Thanks

  • Q: I bought some fishtail trousers before and should have measured my "natural waist". Do I do the same with these or use the modern low waist measurement?

    A: Yes, same as before your natural waist as these also sit higher than a modern trouser. Thank you

  • Q: I am 34” waist and 30” leg I am looking at your fishtail trousers would this be 34 “ medium?

    A: Yes 34" is the medium. There is only one leg length. Thanks Helene
