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.

Durham RT society

Loath though I am to encourage them, here is the St Cuthbert's Red Chino's society, of Durham University.

Admirably self-aware, although not  entirely tongue-in-cheek I suspect...


  1. I just nearly threw up....

  2. I think they look fabulous!!! Here here Red chinos... So AW22!!!!

  3. Two of these boys are in a few of my lectures. Urgh.....

  4. Students. They're such cunts.

  5. Ah silly toffs. Gutted on not getting Oxbridge.

    Good lord!
    All of you, try looking in the mirror and asking yourself "is there any joy left there?"

    Well done "Style streetstalker" for appreciating this for what it is - a bit of fun!

  7. They won't last 5 minutes in Newcastle

  8. loving the chinless one in the middle...

  9. This site is a lightning rod to vitriol. Fair play. (Did I say that right?)

    1. Agreed. Or rather, it's the Red Chino society that's lightning rod to anything.

  10. LOL one of these guys is in my tutorials.
