Katharine Trousers in beige dogtooth by Vivien of Holloway.
These reproduction dogtooth Katharine Trousers are my absolute vintage dream come true! I have wanted a pair of old-Hollywood 1940s style slacks in this look for so long, and Vivien of Holloway has brought my dreams to life! These dogtooth Katharines came in three colours – beige, grey and a rich red – and I think I am going to have to add them all to my wardrobe when they appear on the IHAVOHDAILTWI Facebook group pre-loved! The fabric is soft and thick and will be perfect for the coming winter. This is my third pair of Katharines, and like my second pair I opted for a 24″ (cinched in) waist. They are the perfect size for me and my body shape, and the waist is down to the millimetre the same fit as my previous pair.
Vivien of Holloway also offer wool Katharine Trousers – including this gorgeous charcoal wool pair they invited me to try with their rosewood Slash Neck Top. The speckled wool fabric maintains its structured appearance more than the soft fabrics, for a neat, tailored, professional silhouette. There is no give in the wool fabric, so be sure to check the sizing information on the website carefully, or get in contact with Viv and the team if you’re still unsure.
One thing I really love about the Katharines is that with each pair I buy my outfit options multiply enormously. Nearly every blouse I own can be interchanged with each of my three [now several] pairs, and the silhouette created by the trousers is so iconic you really can’t go wrong pairing them with slightly more modern style tops from thrifting adventures or brands like Princess Highway. Whether you are an established vintage dame looking to explore 1940s slacks or a newcomer looking to start your vintage wardrobe, you should definitely consider introducing a pair (or three) of Katharines.
I am thrilled to say Vivien of Holloway would like to offer you all a 10% discount on their whole website filled with beautiful pieces like these with the code ‘BACALL’ – it’s valid until the 20th of September 2021, perfect timing for the change of seasons!
