The Kate Pants are based on our classic Yu Tailored Pants, made from a 100% Wool. They have a slightly slimmer leg and a more relaxed waistband than the Yu Pants and have just a single front tuck. The waistband has two adjustable tabs at the back to help you find your perfect fit. They feature an extra long hem, perfect for rolling up to a cuff or tailoring to a longer length if needed.

We shoot on film and colours can vary depending on the light, please refer to the flat lay images for an accurate depiction of the colour. This fabric is a true black. 

Wear with the Fred Blazer in the same fabric as the Kate Black Twill Wool Pants, for a matching suit.

Ethically made in Melbourne, Australia


Fits true to size. The Kate Pants have a more relaxed fit through the waist than our other style.

Elegant brown trousers

I have 3 other caves collect pieces but these brown cotton Kate pants were my first caves piece that I didn’t get secondhand. After some wear, I feel they are very much worth the price tag. The construction is really nice and I love the unique brown color. The cotton is not too heavy for the summer but they still look very structured and are perfect for work. I have a hard time finding pants that are high waisted enough for my liking because I have a very long torso and short legs but these fit very well and balance out my proportions just how I like. Of course I had to get the inseam hemmed but it’s totally worth it since I wear these to work every week. I have a much older pair of caves trousers that are size 8 but they seemed to have fixed their sizing since because I felt these fit true to size to the measurements posted and I got a size 6 this time around. I also appreciate the extra fastener by the zipper. My older caves trousers don’t have this and the zipper shows all the time so i found the new addition to be a thoughtful touch.

Height: 170cm
Size Purchased: 8
Reviewers Usual Size (AU): 8
Fit: Perfect
Fabric: Exquisite. This is my second pair of Caves wool pants and this pair feels particularly silky. They feel wonderful on. The wool is also stunning - it’s a cool shaded brown and the herringbone pattern almost gives it a very subtle pinstripe look.

Third Pair

I love the cut of these pants, this is my third pair. The adjustable tabs and high waist mean these are super flattering and customisable. They look good with sneakers and heels. I’m looking forward to getting lots of wear out of these.
