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.

Surbiton





















See, this guy is definitely not posh: shaved bald head, ghoti beard, button cuffs, weird little silver bits on his shoes... no, no, no: definitely not posh. But he's no sort of hipster either. Nor, to be fair, does he look like a lunatic. So why is he wearing RTs? Because, ladies and gentlemen, he's "kind of a big deal".

    1. Hmm. It looks a LOT like him, but going by a google image search I'm not 100% convinced.These bald blokes do all look a bit the same sometimes. Can anyone confirm or deny?

    Except it's not a 'ghoti' beard. Or even a 'goatee' beard.

    He does, however, look a bit of a bell-end.

    1. Um, yes, not quite sure what went on with the spelling there... or indeed the beard identification. I think "Van Dyke" is nearer the mark.

    Known as ' The Breed' and does a mean naked Haka.

  8. Funnily enough, having played rugby and socialised with this man for several years, I can tell you he is in fact a COMPLETE lunatic. Whoever snapped this is lucky to be alive....
