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.

    2. I'd be glad to, John. No beige involved - yet...

      Bath is a big centre for Hen Nights too.

    1. Both H.I. and daughter have full-length mirrors. Fashion victimisation runs in the family.

    7. No, Tom, the image may be burned onto my retina, but other than that no copy of it exists. You do receive a long legs award and the pants are very snazzy!

    1. They are very difficult to get hold of - either they are rotten or you have to pay a fortune.

  7. I think I preferred the gum boots, corduroy trousers, and French workman's jacket. But I would say that, wouldn't I.

  8. I must say you look the bees knees - well from the neck down - can't judge about the rest.
