High & Waisted

Harry high pants, hand me downs – just a couple of terms I heard when I was younger when people discussed high waisted pants.

Funny how no-one ever said anything about comfort, practicality, or that they can bring visual height to people of a short stature.

Throughout this blog or in interviews, I’ve always spoken about my love for classic tailoring and wearing high waisted trousers is one of those practical elements.

Not everyone will like the look, but if you choose to get high, make sure they are nicely tailored to your body shape and yes, you may need braces to keep them in place as your waist is a high movement point on your body.
