Layercake Slackers come in two different lengths. The difference in sizes is achieved by varying the length of the elastic at the waist. If in doubt, check the Fit Guide (click the tab below the product description).

Details
A brand-new trouser-shape...
Like the HiLo's and Baggies, Slackers are (and are meant to be!) VERY roomy. They combine a straight leg with a dropped crotch (which hits at about knee-height) and large slash pockets (for more details about the shape and fit watch Ep 109 of the Slow Wardrobe podcast on YouTube - available from 26 Jan). The resulting silhouette is less rounded than the HiLo's and Baggies but follows the relaxed, over-sized feel of most of the Layercake range. And just like the HiLo's and Baggies, they can be worn full-length or cropped, depending on the look you are after. The wide leg-shape gives them a culotte-like feel when worn cropped. When 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.

After the pre-order, the "My Choice" colour selection will also be available (at the usual full price, which includes the bespoke fee of £30). The pre-order offer only covers the 4 colours shown in this listing.

Please note:

  • Slackers are only available in our heavier-weight linen

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.

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.
