After reading up on the articles posted here I decided that I'd cop a pair to test the waters. The problem is that these are still out of stock in my size (dammit), so the next best option is this. (not too sure if these will last long though, they're only €27 after all)
Any other options which aren't from ASOS? Ideally they would be of a charcoal/grey colour and they wouldn't have a lining on them (as a suit trouser would). I'd rather have them to the casual/smart casual side of the spectrum. Cheers guys
Got these from River Island few days ago Grey Donegal wool-blend skinny trousers - casual trousers - trousers - men - they're still sitting in the bag in my room and I can't remember if they have lining or not but they felt alright on.
If I remember to check them when I go to bed tonight I'll edit in the morning and let you know!
how would you wear these chaps? casual or smart? paired with what?
I would go for something like this....
Monks / ankle boots - both Poste from Office
Denim jacket - Kiku from All Saints
Beanie - All Saints / Newsboy Cap - Borsallino from Village Hats
Pea coat - Ted baker
Top - can't remember, but available from Asos
I have some of these items. Might get the trousers to with them!
Would you just go for the standard grey or do you think navy, brown, black wool trousers look decent?
I had a couple of a/w outfit ideas in mind:
a) Navy Peacoat, oxford shirt, knitwear (autumnal colours), wool trousers, tan brogue boots
b) Black Biker Jacket, plain tee/knitwear, wool trousers, black boots
c) Navy shawl neck cardigan, oxford shirt, wool trousers, brogues or loafers
Personally I'd go for grey/charcoal, they look like they're the most versatile option.
Mind posting a fit pic when you have the chance? They seem like they fit the bill nicely.
Not actual wool trousers per se, but I found these at Zara which have the same aesthetic though.
Here you go Malti001, sorry for the delay on the pics.
The lighting isn't great as they were taken quite late at night.
