Rare 1980s Chloe Knee Length Check Suiting Dress City Shorts
This is an amazing pair of dress shorts from the Chloe label of the 1980s and looks like they were never worn. They have a high end, minimalist feel that is combined with the easy laid back power dressing of the working girl of that time. They are cut with a nipped in waist and have a classic flat pleat suit trouser feel, a play on a man's suit trouser. The fabric choice is also a play on men's suiting and are made from a light wool with a checked black and grey pattern woven though them. The length of the short ends just about the knee depending on how tall you are and I love the slant pockets on each hip and the button slip ones at the back. Excellent condition.
The shorts are unlined and closes with a zipper and buttons at the back waist. Pockets on each hip. Note that I photoed them both flat on a hanger and on the partial dress form where they look more abruptly cinched at the waist then they are in real life. Please note the shape of the first two photos and use the dress form ones only to see how it fits around the hips etc.
