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.

Either the upper tiers are finally feeling the squeeze, or the plebs are developing a taste for red trousers.
Or this bloke simply took a wrong turn on Oxford Street.
Or perhaps he's one of those junkies who dresses up all posh to go thieving? Who knows.

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".
Jasper is the landowner from the children's TV programme "Little Red Tractor". His is the Big Blue tractor we can see in the background there - which, one can safely assume, gets bested in each episode by the eponymous little red tractor owned by someone who doesn't wear red trousers and isn't described by Wikipedia as "materialistic and smug". Isn't kids TV great?
