Stone, grey, cream, off-white (or just plain white) we think light trousers get an unjustly bad rap. Yes, light trousers come with that nagging need for extreme caution, but then again so does the white shirt and that’s filed under ‘wardrobe item I cannot live without’ for the majority of men.
Southwards on the body though, it seems that the palest shades are not so welcome. It’s not just caution that keeps light trousers from claiming their spot on menswear’s must-have list, they’re regarded with a degree of sartorial suspicion, not only supposedly impractical, but almost universally unflattering to boot.
We’re breaking rank and arguing the case for always keeping light trousers at the forefront of your mind when dressing.
Whether you’re just about to pack yours away or are unsure whether or not to invest, we urge you to consider their all-year-round appropriateness.
