Old man's trousers
Two fashion posts in one day - lucky you.
These dark blue, linen, generously cut trousers I sport were bought for a mere £5 from a charity shop yesterday, and were very well made in Greece - judging from the label, they were bespoke made as well.
It's hard to tell with a crap camera and failing, pixilated light, but these are double-pleated fronts with plenty of Victor Sylvester - i.e., ballroom in abundance.
They are the closest thing to proper 1940s cut trousers I have seen that were not made in the 1940s, other than by Armani.
I love them, especially at that price.
The shirt is Hilfiger and the shoes are Crockett and Jones - of course.
