I’ve slowly been amassing a collection of websites where one can buy vintage reproductions and recently four stores have caught my eye. The first is Freddies of Pinewood, which is based in the UK and will ship to the US. Their jeans are made from modern washable denim, without stretch. “You can wear them day in and day out without worrying that you will ruin them!”

A great reproduction of the original 1940’s and 1950’s denim jeans for ladies, for £35


Versatile 1940’s style dungarees made from denim with no stretch. They have a wide leg, huge pockets on the front, a cute hanky pocket and patch pockets on the back. The straps cross at the back and fasten with two buttons. You will probably have to re-sew the strap buttons to fit your size. They have a 34″ inside leg. Available in blue, black and grey denim. £40

RetroSpec’d offers reproduction clothing from the 1940s and 1950s for girls and guys. Just look at these jeans!!



Wide legged and high waisted they’re an extremely flattering cut and come in a variety of colors and styles.

Pictured opposite is the lovely Anna Fur Laxis in the denim style. As you can see they’re super versatile and work as well with halter tops as with blouses.

and last, but certainly not least….


I don’t particularly like this website, but I like the clothing. Two other non jean pieces I like are the high waisted capri pants and the World War II vintage Overalls. Cute!!!!

These classic jeans are simply amazing. Handtailored to the guidelines of 1940s fashion!  The original patterns dates from the first half of the 1940. These are the pants that the American working women wore during WWII. These women looked great and so will you!

It seems Ralph Lauren’s take on the recession involves some neat references to the 1930s Depression, and I’m not complaining.

Paperboy caps, worn denim baggies, ladies in pinstriped three-pieces and plus fours… ring-a-ding-ding!! There were also a few pretty florals, if you care to look.
