White duck trousers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
No real question to this post, I was just so amazed that places sold white duck trousers. I thought it was just a military thing, though ours are styled differently. http://www.bensilver.com/fs_stor....group=1 Actually, I guess my question would be, does anybody actually wear these?

Well, I'm wearing a very similar pair of white trousers with a tan sportcoat, light blue green shirt, teal pocket square and brown and white A-E two-tones as I type this.

Can someone care to explain what are DUCK trousers? I clicked on the Ben Silver link and they just appear to be regular cotton trousers to me. Incidentally, I bought a pair of white plain-front, slim-fit cotton trousers last weekend. From H&M. $29. I tried a pair of white trousers at Faconnable and while the quality of the cotton was superb, it was pleated and it was too baggy for my taste. It was $165. A pair of white trousers is a very important staple in the Continental understated casual look.

Taken from this site: http://www.seattlefabrics.com/cotton.html #10 Duck   A natural canvas that gets its name from two cotton threads that cross each other, forming the number sign (#).  This is called double-fill canvas.  It is great for artist's canvas, boat decking, duffel bags, painted floor cloths and more.  Natural, untreated.  14.75 oz/sq yd.
