Our classic, super comfy elasticated, high waisted trouser design in the 'Alma' print - a pale yellow base with navy blue abstract shape - designed in house by Elspeth Mills.
Thick, stretchy waistband with belt loops and a fabulous roomy hips shape, with deep pockets and roomy in the thighs too! Generous legs which are slightly tapered and designed to be rolled up.
Made by Ismail and the team in Northern India from a light organic cotton, coloured with low impact dyes.
We have improved the fit of our Alexas - the length of the front and back rise has been lengthened by increments of 1.5cm in each size, this will mean the larger sizes sit higher on the waist, allowing a better high waisted fit.

So it took me a while to get an alexa pair of trousers. This pair was an XS30 (I'm a size 12, waist 30" for reference) as although a lot of pictures show the style as baggy, when I tried a previous design in a S it just bunched up around the crotch.
An XS is a much better fit for me on the hips and the elastic waist, however it is a struggle to get your feet into the ankle holes (you really have to tug). Also as I'm 5'11 and went for a smaller size, I find the trousers don't sit as high as I'd like then too.
The design and comfort of these trousers is excellent though - very 80s. They make me feel like an old school kids TV presenter. Again though this suffers from bobbling from day one between the legs, which seems to happen with all my Lucy and Yak garments (cotton ones). I do have a debobbling machine though.
