Button fly- for the boys

The London leg

Upon arriving in London, a strange trouser phenomenon has been observed.

North of the M25, trousers are a functional garment. Something you put on to cover your legs in order to leave the house.

Yet on the streets of London, trousers have gone more avant-garde.

To demonstrate this trouser revolution, please turn your attention to this corduroy pair available now from staple English outfitter Burberry London.

By rights, a corduroy trouser should be a utility pant. A hard-wearing fabric in a relaxed fit . Frankly, corduroy would be the wallflower if fabrics ever got together and had a party. Corduroy would be in the corner talking to tweed about that show off Lycra. Until now- because introducing corduroy to the London leg means that his moment has finally arrived.

Notice the sleek slightly narrower straight leg that is the hallmark of a London leg – it elongates the pins then rests perfectly on top of the shoe.

Note that the London leg doesn’t mean that the trousers are tight- the tailoring is acid sharp and neat without straining at the seams.

The dark marine blue colouring eases the corduroy London leg into the autumn winter wardrobe without looking like a long lost member of Prince and the Revolution. Smart enough for the office, comfortable enough to run for a tube and great with a jumper and a newspaper on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Corduroy is this season’s comeback kid.

What do you think? Should we button it?
