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 currently come in three colours – beige, grey and a rich red – and I think I am going to have to add them all to my wardrobe. 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.
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 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.
Finally, a special message to my fellow Australian gals – Vivien’s sister Christine has an Australian store through which you can purchase all of your VoH favourites (that’s how I managed to get my hands on these beauties before the first batch sold out). I’ve added a link to the Christine’s website below!
