1940/50s Black & White Striped Shorts

Regular price $68.00 Sale

Positively va-va-voom late 1940s / early 1950s black and white striped pin-up style shorts featuring a decorative waistband placket with buttons, cheeky fit, adorable cinch buckle detail at the hem and cute horizontal-striped cuffs. Pair with a billowy blouse for brunch or with your favorite bathing suit top for the beach lounging! Unlined, opaque, side zipper closure. Please note this garment is homemade, making its original intention harder to determine -- these look like they were most likely made for beach or pool-side lounging (not meant to be in the water) as part of a set, but I'm labeling them as shorts for simplicity's sake.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with garment lying flat; waist & hips doubled for your convenience)
→waist: 24 inches
→hips: 37 inches
→rise: 15 inches
→inseam: 2 inches
→outseam length: 12 inches

ESTIMATED SIZE: XX-Small

CONDITION: Good vintage condition with some discoloration at the back and on the front waistband. I've soaked these gently in RetroClean and they've lightened slightly. Someone more familiar with caring for stripes or more bold with bleach may have more success, but I'm selling this garment as-is. Completely structurally sound and discoloration melts away when worn, but I'm picky! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Black and off-white striped

MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears homemade of a cotton blend. Hand wash.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
