    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.

    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.
