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.

Patrick Ekwall (Swedish Sports Journalist)

Many thanks to Erik for this one.

Apparently RTs in Sweden are known as "success trousers".


  1. There's an obvious comment here. So obvious I don't even need to post it. :)

  2. what a camel toe!!

  3. Swedish meatballs

  4. Hell of a packet on him. Well in Swedish RT legend.

  5. I've seen the swedish king wear these pants of success more than once. Here is an article from 2007 (in swedish) about how Carl XVI of Sweden actually started this trend. I tried to find a picture of him too but that was more dificult than I thought.
