1920s men’s pants changed from skinny jazz trousers to wide straight leg trousers to the over-sized Oxford bags in the span of just 10 years. All men’s 1920s pants had very high waists and waistbands held up with button suspenders. Vintage pants and reproduction pants can be very hard to come by, so you can wear new men’s pants with 1920s style like these instead. Look for flat front pants that fit high on the waist (no low rise) in distinct patterns such as stripes, plaid, checks, tweed and herringbone. Cuff the legs for that extra bit of 1920s fashion.
For sportswear, a pair of plus fours or plus twos (otherwise known as golf knickers) make for a great casual costume. Breeches and jodhpurs were similarly worn for riding horses and certain uniforms. Add over the knee argyle socks and a pair of two tone shoes for your summer attire.
