Hello and thank you for visiting our shop!

Up for your purchasing pleasure today is a pair of gold tone screwback hoops with the name "Kathy"

If anyone was punk rock during the 40s it was Katharine Hepburn.....

Women really didn’t wear trousers until the later half of the 20th century. With that in mind, everyone knows that Katharine Hepburn is a style icon for the way she made trousers elegant.

An MGM executive once got so pissed off with Hepburn’s stoic refusal to play their game and stop wearing comfortable clothing, that they paid one of their employees to sneak into her trailer and steal her pants. When Hepburn realised that her prized pantaloons had been taken, she walked around the studio lot in her underwear making everyone feel awkward until they were given back.😂😂😂

*Brand: Not listed but has a patent number: D-173823

Please use these measurements as a guide. When in doubt, measure a garment that is comfortable and compare those measurements to this piece.

All clothing measurements are taken edge to edge with the garment lying flat.

Please note that these are not body measurements, but the measurements of the garment. It is best to allow a little room for movement.
Hand wash garments and lay flat to dry. With the exception of newer, say 1980s an forward. The washer and dryer can be too rough on older garments. The agitation and tumbling are just too much and you can't control that environment.
Some cottons can be Machine washed on a gentle cycle.
Compare the item to the measurements of something you already own that has a similar style, cut and fabric.
Remember that most vintage clothing sizes differ from modern sizes so compare your measurements to the garment and not what size is on the label.
