Nobody should be wearing combats. So 90s. It's as anachronistic as wearing flares
Braces are where it's at. You do however need proper high waisted trews rather than the modern rubbish.
Your choices are few, Old Town Clothing (expensive) or Darcy Clothing (slightly less expensive).
They do however last for years. I bought some proper old style cords from Darcy in Lewes and they will last for ten years and can be properly mended.
Clothes are like everything else, you get what you pay for. Shite from Primark will and does fall apart in a few months, and will not fit anyone other than a skinny 24 year old with a max inside leg of 33 inches.
I have a friend who is starting to manufacture trousers. Work wear in heavy denim in three diff colours. They cost him £50 a pair to have them made. But they do fit and will last. I doubt they'll be less than £150 in a shop and he might make £20 a pair.
They are entirely rational trousers - those of us of a technical bent even find uses for most of the pockets.
The key thing for me is the lightness of the fabric. I haven't worn jeans for decades.
Orang Utan in a clothes shop earlier today.
Lol at rational trousers
Combats are great comfy keks. Can't be beaten for slobbing about.
They don't look great, especially when accompanied by a keychain
And sleeping , cycling and working in.
I never shop in Primark, New Look or H&M. Dronewear
Easily beaten by jogging bottoms.
I can't actually get clothes my size in town.
I get my combats and cargo shorts mail order from Premier Man.
when you work out how to buy a pair of trousers that fit, then - and only then - will you have gained the right to issue fashion diktats
My favourite keks are nice tweedish woolen ones. Nice n warm. I don't really like 'light' trousers.
Well, in your eyes I must look appalling, as my wallet is on a chain.
I despise those. Would rather go kekless
perhaps you should try them as where you currently shop isn't working
Not enough pockets.
I wasn't talking to you.
They have enough.
That is irrelevant.
Jogging bottoms are only for those men who have no dignity left. I speak from experience.
I wasn't suggesting you wear them.
Crocs are for men with no dignity left.
you must have an extensive collection then
I didn't think you were. I was just giving my opinion on a vile item of clothing
You're doing it wrong!!
speaking of doing it wrong....
I've never had a more comfortable belt.
