This prototype is taken from the daily pants of the European immigrants in the 1920-1930s. Most of these trousers lack “YOKE”, that is, there is no triangle stitching cut under the back waist. The waist of the trousers has buttons that can be used to tie the suspender, and there is an adjustment belt in the middle of the back waist to adjust the waist and hip circumference. It’s also called “Buckleback”.
It has the classic fit with a straight leg and a high rise, without any feeling of tightness and it’s not too wide to be uncontrollable.
If you want to create a retro atmosphere, we would recommend you to try this symbolized retro item. Not only suitable for wear together with the knitwear or leatherwear, but it’s also very suitable for workwear or military uniforms.

The trousers are great, however with my leg length, they were simply to short for me.
Very nice item ,great fabric , wearing them a lot !!
I don't normally leave reviews, but in the case of this suit, French Salt & Pepper Striped Chambray Work Trousers and Jacket ordered from Olderbest, I will. If this review is displayed on the website, it will be in full and unadulterated.
Straight off the bat, I wish to convey unreservedly that this is the finest off-the-peg suit I've ever bought. The quality and construction is absolutely unbelievable for the price, definitely up there with the best Jermyn Street tailoring! I'm not kidding, and this was also echoed by a very experienced and long established South London tailor who had to alter the length of the trousers I ordered.
This leads me to my second point. I ordered XL for the trousers, which fitted perfectly at the waist. However the length was too short, and given the fact that these trousers are also worn with braces, they really need to have a good 2 inches added as standard to allow for turn ups or a full or half break. This aside however, I am satisfied with the product.
The jacket, also of fantastic tailoring quality, ordered as XL, was too small. This meant I had to return to order XXL. This meant I had to return to China, at some considerable cost of return. The replacement fits really well and I'm perfectly happy with both suit and jacket.
This does highlight that while the quality of this suit is excellent, and I would recommend that as a company Olderbest would benefit from being more transparent where goods are being shipped from. The communication from the company was excellent, and I cannot fault their help and I received a replacement very quickly, however the original shipment took several weeks to arrive, and again the company does not pay the postage for replacement, so be aware of this fact when ordering.
Overall, I would order again, but only because I am mindful of sizing, which I think you should overestimate, and I’m aware, also given global difficulties, but it may take a few weeks to arrive, but the quality of their products is absolutely exceptional!
The braces I ordered alongside the larger size jacket are also absolutely fantastic.
