These trousers used the 'Hollywood waistband' design. Known as a Hollywood waistband, or Hollywood top, the design was fairly popular in the 1940s and into the 1950s in the US. This waist design was first seen in the UK and was very common in tailors' shops in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This classic design was also used in the UK Type 37 trousers in the 1930s.

Since the tweed fabric is thicker, we changed the waist lining to a high-density cotton twill fabric, which adds comfort and retains the classic design. There is plenty of room in the thigh, and the straight leg is slightly loose, making it more suitable for daily wear. The two pleats design is a classic detail, was common in the 19th and early 20th centuries. And not flipping the belt loops down like a Hollywood Waistband design, it was placed at the regular waist place, ensures the use of heavy tweed fabric without sacrificing its basic comfort.
