post #1 of 10

I need some help buying linen trousers.

Anyone with good tips?

Harrods now stocks Incotex in the basement menswear area. They have a nice selection of summer weight trousers. I bought myself a pair of cotten/linen blend navy chinos a couple of days ago. Prices mainly between £150-200, with a few pairs of more expensive silk blend trousers.

Cheers...

Will have a look.

Ralph Lauren Purple label ones are quite nice, they also make some in hemp that are good too.

RLPL is disgustingly expensive in London :/

Can't be all that expensive to have a pair made up on Saville Row.. how pricey is a trouser length linen cloth? Surely not far off from what the high brands (Ralph Lauren) etc would charge considering the basic detailing and ease of cutting. I may have a couple pairs measured out next week.

Nothing is cheap on the Row...

I agree RL Purple Label is viciously expensive in the UK. Even a lot of Polo stuff is pretty steep.

I quite like some of the Ede and Ravenscroft linen trousers too (RTW) , they're not the highest quality but okay and they're quite cheap for knock arounds. One pair of these has a little mini pocket within the trouser pocket to keep your phone from moving around - perfect fit for iPhone etc; I find this addition most handy! The fit on these is a little more generous than a lot of brands though but I don't mind that on linen.

Why not look for Hackett, Aquasqutum, Dunhill and Massimo Dutti (for a cheaper alternative)?

Cordings of Piccadilly do, as far as I remember, make decent ones for about £120. I own quite a few pairs of their corduroys; the quality is excellent. I have found that Ede and Ravenscroft often have quality issues. My experiences with them have been a mixture of pleasure and disappointment.
