Revival 1940s Fishtail Back Trousers In Navy


Size guide


Revival 1940s Fishtail Back Trousers In Navy

We copied an original pair of vintage forties trousers to replicate these fishtail back pants in a dark blue shade.
They have side adjusters at the waist to achieve the perfect fit.
Single pleats at the front and a zip fly to maintain a flat silhouette over the tummy area.

There are two vertical side seam pockets, a horizontal one at the back plus a watch pocket at the front both with button-down pointed flaps.

There are buttons for braces if required.

Turn-up hems.

The cloth is medium-weight,  soft touch and comfortable to wear,  ideal to dance in.

Here we bring you the authentic look of 1940s men's fashion with all the ease of modern laundering.

80% Polyester, 20% Rayon 

SIZING NOTE Please read before ordering:

Inside leg measurements are approx 31" on all pairs however please take into account the trouser rise which is lower and adds at least another inch to the length. 

The hem circumference is 22".

They are high waisted and so the cut of them may mean a tighter fit. We recommend ordering the next size up or for better accuracy measure yourself just below the belly button. 

Will it fit? We recommend comparing our measurements to something that fits you well. Check the size guide here

Customer Questions

  • Q: Hi are these available in a shorter leg. I normally take a 29incn leg. Anything else is far too long?

    A: We don't offer shorter leg lengths on these trousers. However, as they are too long they can be shortened by any local alterations tailor easily. The cost is usually around £10 to £15

  • Q: Hi what is the overall silhouette of these trousers i.e. thigh and leg opening size. I've gone up to a size 40 waist so some information would be most helpful thank you Pete?

    A: Pete, For a 40" waist the dimensions are approximate as follows: Thigh - 26" circumference Knee - 22" circumference Bottom Leg Opening - 21" circumference

  • Q: Hey there, I'm wondering how much length the inseam would gain if I would open the cuffs? 31" is sadly way to short for me... thank you! :)?

    A: Hi are they a lot too short? My husband normly buys 32 leg. These trousers are slightly too long for him. It's due to the lower rise. Otherwise i can check the cuff on Tuesday. Helene

  • Q: Hello Vintage, I am interested in high waist trousers. I am a 34 waist but as these trousers are higher waist does this not infer they fit above the normal waist band and thus a larger size is required? Thanks?

    A: All depends on your shape really. My husband has his regular size, other customers find theyhave to go up a size. We added size adjusters to give a bit of flexibility. Best solution is to measure your natural waistline & go from there. Thank you Helene

    "Great, just be careful if you have a bit of a beer belly!"

    Written by Julian | 19 July, 2021

    These are great trousers for a 40's look. The waist is nice and high, which I thought would be uncomfortable, but I was completely wrong, these feel great. One thing though - they go right up literally round your belly button, so be aware if, like me, you have a little bit of a beer belly! I'm a 34" waist, but have had to buy size 36" in these trousers, just as they're so high.
    The material is quite light, cool and comfortable.
    All in all - 5 stars.
