edinburgh trousers - old car
Straight out of the 70s. These are sleek wide-leg trousers with an ultra high-rise waist, cinched with darts. Center back invisible zip closure for a streamlined silhouette around the tummy. Unlined. Comfortable enough for an airplane styled with a vintage tee, but also can be easily dressed up to go out with a tube top and heels.
Our vintage-fabric-womenswear is made using remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero environmental impact and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this linen blend (circa 1970s) to make 14 pairs! Ethically made in NY by our legendary seamstress. BTW our sizes may run slightly small, so measure yourself— these best fit a 24 inch waist in XS, 26 in S, 28 in M, 30 in L, and 32 in XL (and if we're sold out or you'd like something custom to your measurements, check out our made-to-order page).
*Please note, these materials were upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, aka a fancy way of saying recycled. This means the fabric can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed (our specialists assess). Dry clean only— or try lazy washing: spot-clean, pat odorous areas with vodka, and place in the freezer for a day.
