    Hello everyone,

    I'm selling this beautiful example of drape suit, dating back to 1938 and manifactured by Utah Woolen Mills. Here's the eBay auction link:

    Nice one. Trouser waist measurement, that's taken at the very top opening, right? Does it widen any a little further down, e.g. where a modern trouser waist would be? Thanks!

    Yes, you are correct: the waist measurement is taken at the top of the waistband, which sits above the navel. The trousers follow then their natural way to the seat so yes, it is definitely wider, say, a couple of inches down.

    I'm glad of the e-bay photo, my definition of a drape is so very different.
