My son,16, is fascinated with the 1930/40's. Slih is the only clothes shop that recreates authentic vintage fashion that's great quality and true to the style of the era. My son has 2 full suits, 1939's bags and waitscoats to match. He wears them every day and desperately wants another suit for his birthday in October. The way I figure the cost is Nike, Adidas etc would cost similar and honour of fashion much quicker. Thank you slih for allowing my son fulfill his passion for this style. 15/09/2020
I wanted to approach the fashion of the 40s with elegant men's trousers. I was tired of having to content myself with tying my suspenders to the usual cotton twill replicas trousers of the RAF or USAF uniforms of the WWII.
Then, thanks to a dedicated website (Vintage Dancers) I was directed to
Some like it Holy online shop, in the UK. Here I really found the very high quality I was looking for that I didn't think existed ...
I was able to order and quickly receive a fantastic pair of chestnut herringbone wool Oxford trousers. Really, really, really cool, believe me ! Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I was dealing with real professionals and that I had to pay attention to the sizes. In fact today, pants are mostly low-rise, but in the 40s it was completely the opposite. It was absolutely no problem getting HELP from Some like it Holy : The Wanderful MARIE (the heart and the brilliant mind of Some Like It holy) "took me by the hand" and picked up my wrong order (size only, of course) and kindly put into production exclusively for me an amazing 40s tailored Oxford trousers. Incredible but true !
This is what I can confidently say to anyone who wants to become Someone likes it holy customers.
Now I have found them and given the wide choice, for sure I will never leave them !

I have purchased three items: Charcoal Fine Pinstripe Oxford Bags,, the Pale Grey Oxford Bags, and the Antique White Spearpoint Shirt.
Excellence is the word that comes to mind when it comes to the quality of fabric and craftsmanship of these items. I am delighted both with the old world charm and superb customer service that Some Like It Holy executed in the service to this customer. 07/09/2020

I was after some brown herringbone Oxford bags which were unfortunately out of stock in my size. A quick email followed by a phone call and they were made up for me and delivered to my door in around two weeks. Lovely quality trousers and great service! I'll be ordering again soon. Thank you!

I go out to have a good time with like-minded people and dance, dance, dance. Northern Soul is my thing and I have been looking for some Oxford Bags. I came across Some like it holy and decided to give them call. Malou could not be more helpful with giving advice and getting stock in for me to purchase. With Malou advice and confidence in her products I purchased a pair of Grey & Black herringbone Lightweight Oxford Bags. Perfect weight, brilliantly made, great quality material and have already had their first outing. Thank you Malou well impressed and looking forward to taking these trousers out on many dance floors.

Blue Wool Herringbone Oxford Bags
I recently bought these to wear for a special party we were throwing.
I'd been looking for bags everywhere to no avail, so thought I would take a chance with these. They are great colour, perfect cut and look fab. At 33" long, they will need adjusting for most people. I took the decision to get the 3 button down belt loops removed at the same time as I think they look over fussy and really a belt with braces is just too much going on.
I teamed them up with white button down shirt and taupe braces with brown leather ends. I was very pleased how it all turned out and received a lot of favourable opinions. Even from my grown up kids, who were originally more than a little sceptical!
Might seem expensive, but these are a hand produced item and you are unlikely to see anybody else in them. For me, it was money well spent and I'm grateful somebody decided to produce such an item.
So my birthday is fast approaching, and after investing in a "Savvy Row" vintage suit I was on the prowl for a shirt to match. Nowhere on the high street had what I was looking for - the shirt I wore in the late 80's - modelled on the 40's and 50's.......and then I came across Some Like It Holy. There it was - spearpoint collarred, 17.5inch, white cotton - perfect! The order process and payment were easy - the shirt arrived in a couple of days and fits like a gl-........well....a shirt!! It's brilliant to look at, well made and should set off the suit perfectly. Thank you.......I will be back for more!!!!
