Sure, there are cheaper linen pants out there, but I very much doubt you'll ever find any from Rota at 40 euro. Here's an idea of what the Rotas look like from the side:



It looks like the ones I linked are mostly sold out anyway. Some of the other colors might be available in more sizes if you're interested.

Spectators and tassel loafers for the more formal ones.

Espadrilles and plain slip-ons for the more casual ones.

Still, over 400 dollars is a crazy price for pants. At that price it is easier to just buy the fabric and take it to a tailor.

It's a bit of a moot point since they're sold out in all sizes but one, but those Rota linen trousers come out to $333 shipped after SF discount and tailoring credit. Rota trousers sell for €300-350 in Europe and ¥50-60,000 in Japan. They are not cheap trousers, but our prices are very attractive (which I guess, is also why they sell so fast).

Here is a little article by Simon Crompton on Rota, if you're interested : http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2014/03/rota-trousers.html

Lucky you if you can get bespoke trousers for that kind of money - where I am, it would be significantly more than $333

I understand that your budget is much lower (€40 pants mentioned above) and that's fine, but that doesn't warrant labeling those or their price as "crazy." Maybe next time, ask for a suggestion at a specific price point and you'll get more targeted answers?

I just gave a personal opinion. Those trousers may sell fast in small amounts to people who do not want to spend time searching for other options, but in some countries there are tailors who can make a pair of bespoke trousers for a fraction of that price, you just have to give them linen fabric of your choice. And that's why a good pair of linen trousers may be 20-40 euros; the problem is that it takes time to find the right ones, or the alternative is what I said: buy linen and take it to a tailor.
