Oxford Bags were the fashionable trouser shape of the 1920's. The wide leg craze originated with the undergraduates of Oxford University, and were quickly adopted by the Bright Young Things of the interwar generation. This led to young men racing around town in exaggerated styles, where the hems measured as much as 44in in circumference.
Our version have more modest 24in hem, which makes them very practical to wear. These trousers have split backs and a buttoned rear pocket, as well as the two side ones.
The fly is fastened with buttons rather than a zip.
Braces buttons are included as well as belt loops for the ultimate "belt and braces" situations.
We only have very limited quantities right now, as these are a bit of an experiment. Once we have had more feedback on the shape and finish we will produce more.
