What is everyone's views on the whole 'second trousers with every suit' philosophy?
Is it really necessary to source out a second pair of trousers with every suit? Some people say that you should always get a second pair of trousers with every suit bought, on the principle that the pants get destroyed before the jacket. Others say that one is enough. I guess it would make a difference if you have 3 suits compared to 5-10 suits, where the same suit isn't used as frequently in rotation. I read somewhere from Matt Jensen that the average man in this day and age buys a new suit quite frequently, as a result suits are only really lasting a few years, as opposed to 15 years. Perhaps 2 trousers is overkill?
Dartagnan Red was telling that he had to take his trousers to the tailor to get some extra life out of them. I know it probably isn't going to go down well with you guys, but I have had 2 pairs of Tarocash trousers (I was still in school and far from eclectic) that I have worn over several years, and they haven't faded or torn in any shape or form. However, it would be annoying having trousers fall apart on you, when you still love your jacket.
