Does anyone know where I could find some high waisted, pleat fronted, 1940s style trousers? The high end fashion mags are full of them, has always been a favourite style of mine but I can't find anything similar on the high street.

Or online, ideally online... I live very rurally!

Thank you lucked! I like those but I'm not so into the paperbag waistband.

I am a big fan of this shape:

Thanks Niminy, I haven't seen that site before! Shane they don't have pleat fronted ones... the search goes on!

Young Americans -era David Bowie style trousers is what you want. The forties done by the eighties.

There's a few that might suit in cos, but not sure whether you want tapered or flared legs?

more finery and I think what you are looking for but limited sizes.

thanks Lucked! I think Niminy is spot on... 80s does 40s is what I'm after.

I've sent for these from the Uniqlo U range. They're described as 'low waisted' but they look reasonably high to me.
