Like all of our trouser shapes, the Lantern Breeches come in two different lengths. And like the Palazzos, they come in 3 sizes. The Fit Guide (click the tab below the product description) gives you both garment measurements and corresponding size recommendations. If in doubt, don't hesitate to ask me for advice.

Details
Like the HiLo's and Slackers, Lantern Breeches are cut to be roomy without being too voluminous. No less than 8 panels create a loose leg shape that angles in towards the ankle, creating a multi-faceted lantern-shape around the bottom half of the leg.
Large slash pockets keep the hip-section smooth and flat.

Breeches are currently only available as a pre-order garment - you choose any of the colours offered, add your size and length choice and place your order. You will receive your Breeches 2-4 weeks after you place your order. Pre-ordered Layercakes can always be returned or exchanged.

For more details about the shape and fit watch Ep 119 of the Slow Wardrobe podcast on YouTube - available from 21 June. The resulting silhouette follows the relaxed, over-sized feel of most of the Layercake range but with a different silhouette. And just like the other designs, they can be worn full-length or cropped, depending on the look you are after. The tapered leg-shape gives them a breeches-like look, especially when worn cropped. Worn full-length they are super-comfortable, easy to team with just about any other Layercake and they hit that typical Layercake combination of looking both quirky and sophisticated at the same time.

Please note:

  • Lantern Breeches are currently only available in our mid-weight linen

“MY CHOICE" colour requests and how to order them:
This option allows you to pick a Layercake Linen colour that is not standard for this garment. We will then make this garment in your choice of colour.
Please note: we are out of stock of Pinstripe and Violet, so please refrain from choosing either of those. Bitter Lime is back in stock!

To order:

  1. Pick a colour from the big picture with the list of names and swatches.
  2. Select the colour "my choice", select your size, then add to cart.
  3. On the Cart page, type the colour of your choice in the "Note to The Slow Wardrobe" box.
  4. Check out as usual.

The Slow Wardrobe sizes
We follow our own sizing system, recognising that the traditional system of "ladies dress-sizes" does not account for body shape and height. See how The Slow Wardrobe sizes relate to body measurements HERE.

Trousers/Skirts
These garments are designed to fit a very wide range of sizes and heights, from a UK size 10 to 28. Check these garment measurements to give you an idea of their dimensions. All trouser and skirt lengths are measured from the top of the waistband down to the bottom of the hem, along the side seam.

Custom sizes

We do everything we can to be truly size-inclusive. We can highly individualise your Layercake, by adapting the standard fit and/or choosing a non-standard fabric/colour.

Find out more about this service HERE.

Linen Care & Washing Instructions
Every Layercake has washing labels sewn into them, usually in the left side-seam.
All our linen is pre-shrunk, unless stated otherwise and can be machine-washed at 40º C and either line-dried or machine-dried. If you machine-dry them, take them out of the dryer as soon as it finishes and hang them up straightaway, then you will not have to iron them.

Our Linen
Linen is one of the world's strongest textiles and most sustainable fashion choices, creating zero waste as every part of the plant is used (for textiles and food). Our linen is all European grown, yarn-dyed and woven especially for us, then boil-washed to pre-shrink it.

Find out more about our linen.

Wearability
Linen is not only a Summer fabric, it is also a natural insulator, providing warmth when it is needed and offering the perfect base for a layered look, trapping air between the layers to keep you cozy year-round.
