On The Hunt...


Nothing overly exciting today, however I have had this image knocking around my laptop for quite a while. I am wondering whether anybody knows where I could find a pair of trousers similar to these? Although they may not appeal to many, I am rather attracted to the unique style and fit of these, as well as the oversized buttons on the front. I am also rather keen on the colour, as they happen to be somewhat unusual, yet at the same time quite muted and not overly loud. I would also pair them tucked into Doc Martens, however my pair are the 8 eyelet style, therefore far more of the tapered legs of the trousers would be visible. I would also like to try these on with plimsoles or low profile footwear in order to see how the tapered ankles would suit them. If anyone knows where these trousers, or something similar, is on sale, I would be most grateful - if not to buy, then at least try on!


Another pair of trousers I quite like are the jeans in this photograph. Although I would personally wear the jeans higher, I like the wider thighs with the tapered legs and ankles. Personally I am reminded of riding bottoms, which I love the silhouette and fit of. These jeans are now officially on my shopping wish list. And may I also add that I really like the personal style of this gentleman, it is laid back and simple, yet works very well for him.


The fit of smart trousers is something that has always interested me, especially how the style of trouser is translated into a casual look via the unique fit. Unfortunately these purple cotton slim fit trousers are no longer on sale in my size, however I really do like the slim fit and also the colour. Personally I think men should take more risks with the colour of their trousers - sticking to dark colours is always sensible, however I would always recommend experimenting with a splash of colour and seeing if it fits in with your style and personality!

  1. The guy in the first image looks awesome! I am not sure if I would wear all of these pieces together but he wears them all to perfection! His dropped crotch trousers look like a pair of jodhpurs, don't they?

  5. Thanks for the comment on my dress (and nails!) :) Question, I have been thinking of a Q&A video, is it hard to do?

  6. oh wow, those first trousers are fantastic! the buttons give the slouchy cut a military twist, and the deep maroon is a glorious combination, i'm as much in love as you are!
    the smart trousers in daring purple are quite lovely: my boyfriend wears suit trousers casually on occasion, and i love them, there's something so 1940s spiv/1950s dance partner about them. i think i'd struggle to persuade him that purple was the way forward for him, but whilst some prefer classic monochrome, others inject colour in wonderful ways: both are fine by me!

  8. yeah, jodhpurs he's wearing very low, i'm thinking you'll be seeing something like this soon as they're back in style - try the rocknroll stores, do you have anything like Trash & Vaudeville? maybe check their website.

  10. Cool pics. I agree, the trousers in the fist pic are extremely chic; I wish I knew where to direct you . . . maybe Barneys? They have some unique designers.

  12. Interesting take on these. Everyone I know prefers to wear their jeans like the skater dude.

    Wonder if you are wanting horse jockey pants. Have you tried any online places that just sales outfits for horse jockeys?

    Thanks for the comment. Yeah, they aren't prepaired quite yet.

  21. The purple trousers are my favourite of the bunch, though the burgundy ones do pack a unique punch. I didn't know you had been to Toronto! What made you want to come here? I've been to London :)

  26. I don't think there's a DVD box set. I think I saw a petition to make the show for a DVD. That would be our cue. I like the purple pants. Good fit.

  27. i love the first pants. i've never seen anyone in pants like those before. and i really like the quirkiness of it.

    i've always thought of menswear as boring. then i realized it's only because a lot of men don't like to take risks. even plain trousers in a fun color like the purple ones you posted above makes a huge difference!
