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.

Getting kitted out


Architect Mike Davies

A few people have mentioned this guy. I didn't think it would be long before someone papped him. (Well done Alex).

This is of course way above and beyond plain old RTs, but I think he merits posting.

Decisions, decisions...

"Wife or servant urgently required. Working knowledge of chilled meat products an advantage, but not essential."




Double-trouble in South Kensington


Oxford has so far led the race in RT submissions. Nice to see Cambridge putting up a good fight.

In fact, we could make it into some sort of yearly competition - and all turn up and watch, wearing red trousers.

First day at work?

"What do you mean I have to go home and change? You said 'smart-casual' - you didn't say anything about not dressing like a complete bell-end."

Red trousers, Orange shoes

City of Bath again.

Is that an iPhone 5 in your pocket?

Elephant polo!

It's the question on everyone's lips: "We know that boring old normal polo is a red trousers kind of game, but what about elephant polo?" Thank you to Amy for finally providing an answer.


Taken at the recent Wales v Ireland polo match, this is a nice example of the toff/hipster RT crossover.

In the wine trade

Very nice guy, I'm told. Nice jacket too.


A true fact

"The wealthiest 1% of the population owns 99% of the world's red trousers."

Thank you to madeupstats for this acute observation.


A very big THANK YOU to all the people who have sent pictures in over the last couple of months - much appreciated. Sorry for not having updated the blog for so long - I've been abroad, or in prison or something, I forget the details. Updates will hopefully now be at least weekly. Keep 'em coming!
