As a transplant to the Land of Hope and Glory (aka Britain), I'm often enthralled by the fashion choices sported by this nation's great people. Over my eight years here, I've blogged about bow-ties and frequently wondered if I was the only one perplexed by men wearing red trousers.
Yes, men wearing red trousers -- frequently of the denim variety, usually paired with a powder-blue dress shirt and/or a brown tweed jacket. My friends, it's as bad as it sounds.
So you can imagine my delight when the wonderful Emma Pass found this link for me (caution! Profanity! Definitely called for when it comes to red trousers!).
Here's a bit from the into:
If you want your leg-coverings to let the world know that you’ve got a few quid and don’t care who knows it, or that you have some big ideas about what’s on at the ICA right now - or simply that you are completely insane (but in a mainly non-stabby way) - then you’d better get your wife or girlfriend to take those jeans and chinos down to the charity shop post-haste!
Because there’s only one type of trousers you’ll be wanting to wear, and that’s RED TROUSERS. In fact - if you can’t wear red trousers you’d be better off wearing NO TROUSERS AT ALL. That’s what I say.*quid = pounds
**ICA = Institute of Contemporary Arts in London
Excuse me, I'm off to buy Mr TR a pair of red trousers. Either that, or he's NOT WEARING TROUSERS AT ALL! *ahem*
Do you have red trousers? Are you going to buy some after reading this?
