A British classic popular since Victorian times but worn by Men all the way through to the early 1950s, our 'Bertie' high-back fishtail trousers are actually based on an original early '40s CC41 pair in our personal collection.

They feature period correct details such as a deep rise to sit on your natural waist (often referred to as 'High-waisted' compared to the modern trouser cut), twin-pleats for a slightly fuller hang, an extended waistband for a smoother fit, buttons for braces, and a straight-leg ending in 22" cuffs complete with 1.5"  turn-ups.

These trousers come in two leg lengths, regular (32") and long (34") and are only partially lined due to the weight of the fabric.

Key Features include:-
- High-rise natural waist
- Buttons for braces
- Turn-ups
- Twin pleats
- 22" cuffs
- Two side pockets
- Change/watch pocket with flap
- Single rear pocket with flap

Matches our Victor waistcoat in matching fabric - Fabric is an italian wool mix - a subtle check of greys and blues.

Fabric: Poly/wool mix - from Italy 
Care: Dry clean recommended

Proudly manufactured in Great Britain

Our trousers fit higher than most modern styles and therefore we recommend you measure your natural waist before ordering the size.

Leg Lengths:- 
These speecific trousers are a regular 32" inside leg length. They have a deep 2" hem with a turn up - so they can be adjusted if required.

Fantastic trousers and fantastic customer service thank you so much Charles. Ordered a size 34R unfortunately there was a stock error. However Charles made a phone call to me the day I ordered them to offer me an alternative size.. By Monday we had sorted it out and he suggested a size larger than I had ordered as these trousers are high waisted. They arrived the very next morning and fit my husband perfectly. Thank you so much I sure I will be ordering from you again in the future.
