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.

Upturned collar on tweed jacket

Thank you to James for this excellent shot, taken outside Waterloo station.


  1. No photos just yet but there should be a matching pair to your red trouser. It's often seen country cousin - Pink Cords or, in the original French Les Corduroi en Rose.

  2. I, too, saw Vic Reeves.
