  • Product Description

      FabGabs is delighted bring you quality reproduction pieces by Northwest clothing line, Jitterbuggin'. This well-made brand is no longer active, and we have been lucky enough to consign their deadstock. That means that while there's multiple sizes and colors of many pieces, the quantity is limited - just like vintage, there will never be more. 

      The Ankeny Slacks are possibly my favorite of all pieces from the line, ever. I own this in multiple textiles. This style is a sporty shape, with ultra high, pointed midwaist and suspender straps that cross at the back. The pants are wide, with single front pleats. They have a very functional pocket on the right, and close with a zipper on the left. The material is a very sturdy and heavy Black Cotton Twill.

      The sizing ended up not entirely accurate after manufacturing, so I am not listed them using the tagged sizes, and have broken them into number sizes here, with specific measurements. I have included the original tagged size under my own sizes, so you are not surprised upon arrival. Also, both the straps and the pant legs are cut a little long on these so you can adjust as desired.


      These are close-outs, there are no returns for fit.

      I apologize in advance that size beyond 14 are not available, and that sizes above 28 have such limited quantities. What larger sizes there were mostly sold before the brand retired. I cannot have any further pieces made.

      These items are deadstock and unworn, with the exception of the size 4/6 sample modeled in the lookbook. Some have been unwrapped and then repackaged for measurements. All will arrive clean and folded in a protective envelope and standard FabGabs packing.
