- You wouldn't have thought it was so hard to find a pair of smart, black trousers
Found a similar thing the other day, unusually for me, I bought a couple of blazers/jackets to wear with jeans for smarter casual occasions when jeans and a shirt is not enough and a suit is overkill. Really struggled to find anything decent that didn’t look cheap and nasty. Finally found what I was looking for in a Jeff Banks shop. Might be woth looking if there’s one near you.
I’ve also found Debenhams to be pretty good for things like this, reasonable (well known) designers, and a more classic range than the more fashion victim retailers.

This maybe today’s most metrosexual post, but bear with me 🙂
I’m after a pair of smart black trousers for work – chinos/smart jeans, that kind of thing.
I’ve bought Paul Smith and Ted Baker in the past, paying £80-100 so I can get something really good quality which will stay smart for a couple of years. I’ve learned my lesson with Paul Smith, everything I’ve bought has had quality issues, but been looking in John Lewis, House of Fraser for something similar and drawing a blank, except for Hugo Boss but they’re a tad pricey at £130…
The fashion police seem to have decreed that we’re only wearing red, yellow or bright blue this year, but as I’ve no desire to dress like a Rupert or Brian Cant, or any of that lot from Rainbow, this doesn’t quite work for me…
Any ideas before I grit my teeth and pass over £130 notes?Posted 4 years agobravohotel8erMember
Dockers SF Chinos – £85 and available in black. Good quality, bought two pairs three years ago and they’re still in fine condition.Posted 4 years agobravohotel8erMember

ones, but in my experience they are ‘true to size’. If it helps I’m
6 foot, 32 inch waist and 12.5 stone and found the 32/32 were perfect…
they’re a nice slim cut, but won’t make you look like you’re on your way
to a social media start-up networking session in a Shoreditch warehouse conversion!
