Just got an email from them with yet another liquidation sale — trousers this time.
Lockdown has really tripped me up. All I wear are joggers and occasionally mom jeans. I know I'm really out of fashion, but I have no idea what's in at the moment?
Any ideas? I'd like to keep it casual or smart-casual if possible!
Kudos for photos :)
Which was my last remaining reason to get dressed
Hi everyone, I’m desperately seeking some help and advice from anybody that’s experienced similar problems.
Our 4 year old girl has suspected autism, and one of the main problems we’re facing is that we simply cannot leave the house due to her not wanting to wear trousers. Around the house it’s not the biggest problem in the world, as sometimes we can get her in a baggy t-shirt. But anything else is just a no go. Trousers, skirt, dresses. You name it. It generally turns into an episode each time we try to leave the house to say even go shopping. Kicking, screaming, punching. Most of the time she wins and we stay in, but the times we manage to get her in trousers she’ll continuously keep her hand down the back of them. It’s as though she’s trying to keep them from touching her.
We’ve obviously tried as many avenues as possible regarding professional help however the resources in our county are pretty poor. The waiting list for her to see a specialist and get specific help for what we feel may well be suspected autism is over a year and a half. It’s so long away and we just feel so helpless in the meanwhile.
I’m just wondering if there is anyone else out there that has experienced anything remotely close to this. Because we really just don’t know what to do. Any help or suggestion would be massively appreciated!
I've been looking around for a pair of flannel trousers in mid-grey and it has been pretty hard to find something that resembles quality for a decent price. Most (like J. press or BB) are around 200$+, so I'm curious as to where you gents shop for yours? I'm a 30W 32L and live in Europe if it makes a difference.
EDIT: Thanks for all the suggestions! I ended up jumping the gun and bought a pair from Dapper Classics!
We find ourselves living in a new normal, permanently working from home. This domestic setting means any kind of formal dressing feels stiff. Equally, I don’t want to wear sweatpants at all times (the delivery man is getting suspicious). Enter the relaxed trouser.
I tried out 13 different pairs of relaxed slacks over a number of weeks. The Gramicci Gramicci Pants came out on top with their comfortable fit, versatile styling, extensive colourways and functional details. I also like the premium feeling and cosy Albam Ripstop Drawstring Trouser, and the great value of the Community Clothing Men’s Cotton Chino.

Gramicci was a brand started in the early ’80s by a young climber named Mike Graham — the name was an Italian spin on his surname. Their early products were a pair of shorts and pants with some unique features, notably a diamond shaped crotch gusset to allow for movement, and a built in nylon belt for tightening or loosening the waist. It was a brilliant and widely copied innovation, and most outdoors companies have had a stab at it, but the Gramicci G‑Pant is the original and it remains a great pant.
Like any great piece of work or sportswear, the G‑Pant has the edge of being designed for function and feels both solidly built and extremely comfortable. It also comes in a dizzying array of colours and variants due to its rebirth as a Japanese based clothing brand rather than the more functional and anti-fashion approach of a traditional outdoors brand. The pricing is reasonable at £75 pounds a pair and it’s widely available in a huge range of colours and fabrics.
What I love most about it is its flexibility. The fabric is a fairly traditional twill so you can wear it like you would a smart pair of chinos but the nylon belted waist is and gusset crotch means it has the utility and comfort of a pair of sweats, and the minimal technical details means it’s just as good paired with a contemporary trainer and oversized sweatshirt. In fact, I wish I’d known about these when I was a 16 year old skater as I would gone crazy over the tapered/relaxed fit and comfortable, worn in fabric. It beats the hell out of the insanely stiff Dickies or Carhartts that w... keep reading on reddit ➡
