Selvedge is a specialist textiles magazine with an international circulation.
An article which documents the biography of a pair of breeches issued as part of the uniform of the Women’s Land Army during the Second World War. It considers the history of corduroy and its decline as a UK textiles industry, garment styling, manufacture and distribution to the land girls. How, where and when they were worn and the postwar biographies of breeches as ‘authentic’ uniform for living history or as stylish vintage fashion.
