From South Ken to Shoreditch, from Jermyn Street to Mare Street – these days anyone that’s anyone is wearing red trousers.

If you want your leg-coverings to let the world know that you’ve got a few quid and don’t care who knows it, or that you have some big ideas about what’s on at the ICA right now - or simply that you are completely insane (but in a mainly non-stabby way) - then you’d better get your wife or girlfriend to take those jeans and chinos down to the charity shop post-haste!

Because there’s only one type of trousers you’ll be wanting to wear, and that’s RED TROUSERS. In fact - if you can’t wear red trousers you’d be better off wearing NO TROUSERS AT ALL. That’s what I say.

Rock

Rock in Cornwall, where this photo was taken, is of course one of the UK's premier Red Trouser towns.

  5. Whilst recently on holiday at a caravan park in Cornwall, I visited Rock, my expectations raised by torrid tabloid tales of toffs-gone-wild.

    I anticipated the last days of Sodom, with braying up to eleven; what I actually got was a rainy car park, and a stilted conversation with a pensioner in the public toilets (about a cement mixer).
