    Men's Trousers & Shorts Pattern

    Imagine yourself in these charming 1950’s slacks / pants / Oxford bags / swing pants and shorts. Both the slacks and the shorts have flattering soft pleats at front waistline. Pockets concealed in the side seams, small pocket at right front, and two back pockets style both views. Belt carriers are stitched to waistband. The slacks are cuffed at lower edges whereas the shorts have a simple blind hem, and also feature a buttoned flap on the small front pocket. A must have for any gentleman's wardrobe!
