For sale here are an unusual pair of vintage flannel sports trousers by Gieves of Savile Row. They appear to date from the late 20's or maybe early 30's given the flat fronted cut, cotton lining and cinch back. Unusually the waistband is quite low rise. After a little googling it seems that in tennis and to an extent cricket a sweater was very often worn and the waist of the trousers completely covered and so the trousers wouldn't have needed the height and pleats.
Waist -31" ( 3)
In side leg - 29.5 "
Outside leg - 38.5"
Hem width - 18 "
Vert good considering the colour and age. there are a few light marks as shown but in reality when worn they look great and small marks would be natural on a sporting trouser.
