    I have close pals who I regularly torture with this peach of a website.

    Look at this idiot

    Few things scream extraordinary wealth like pink/red trousers and a pair of pale brown brogues worn with an air of general contempt. The guy in the second picture is just some kind of street performer or layabout.

    this pic was posted the last time this site came up. I’m still trying to work out what the bloke in the background is angry about…

    everytime I go to that blog I scan from trouser leg up and every time expect to recognise the face…
    ..shocked that as yet I havent. There must be far more red trouser wearers out there than I imagined 😯

    Red strides = better than you.

    Do Rapha do them?

    Is this a That London thing?

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen someone sporting red strides, tweed jacket and tie.

    But then up here in Geordieland it is rare to see someone sporting any kind of jacket.

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen someone sporting red strides, tweed jacket and tie.

    Up here it’s a tweed coat, typically buttoned up, or an Aran sweater. It’s a rare sight in the city as staff are usually sent in; but you’ll certainly come across it in Hexham or, in particular, Alnwick.

    I have mustard and pink cords 8)

    However I’m probably in the bottom 1% wealth wise

    We had a shop in Honiton Devon until very recently that only sold red and mustard cords to all those Bentley driving Farmers.

    i can confirm that loads of ball aching posh folk in kensington wear them, i used to work there and youd see them loads, often old and faded to pink too, chords or thick chino types, they look awful but obviously in the right circles they are da bomb
    cfh? its your area please explain

    ive also seen a very pissed old red trousered gent step into raffic leaving the anglesea arms with a spreading wet patch in his crotch as he failed to get to his multimillion pound mews house over the road quickly enough

    speaking of Rapha, their proud boast that their new “Grand Tour Shoes” are made of yak leather suggests that they have finally completely disappeared up their own arse. Again. I had to check it was’t April 1st when the yak leather / shoe tree email arrived (yes I am on their mailing list, for entertainment purposes).

    What’s wrong with red trousers? I think they would look remarkably smart, especially since they would match the lining of my tweed jacket.
