Some wise words from Matthew and Kirk, proprietors: “In our opinion chinos are the only informal trouser that should be worn. They can be worn by boys and girls in a many ways – smart, with a good pair of chunky brogues, casual, rolled up with a pair of pumps and hardcore with a pair of heels, as above.”

  1. J’agree. Does Bstore do them in girly sizes?

    Yes, yes, I understand. Very you, dear!

  3. Absolutely. So much lighter than jeans and more versatile. Roll-em up, roll-em down, roll…all over ’em…

    Dicky Gray here: just a thought: a long time ago, I really wanted a Margiela trench coat with a raw hem. It hit the just above mid-thigh. I was obsessed. Anyway, me being from the north, I had a thrifty thought: why not buy a second-hand Burberry one (£20 or so), cut it short with the old bacon scissors and attack it with a pin so it frayed a bit. Then wear. I did and got trop de compliments. How about somet’ like that with a pair of your actual chinos, as
    above. Could work.

  5. I love the idea of hacking at something with a pin. So violent, yet so delicate. The trench sounds like perfection.

  6. I’m sorry Richard but …where are you getting second-hand Burb trench coats for £20 from, pray tell? Are you talking about 20 years ago???!

    This was in ’68, mind and part of my exit for Woodstock: garlands in hair etc. etc.

  8. Jordan donned this pair of shoes, the Nike oxygen Jordan XIX, all through the 2003-2004 NBA season. This pair of sneakers is definitely an awesome offer over an eyesore to say the least. The the front element belonging to the tongue arrives up way as well high, and that fence like design and design going lower it is terrible. There may be considered a velcro strap, that is not assisting the design’s situation either. It helps make the element it is linked to actual physical appearance like just one huge flap is covering the true shoe. It is challenging to discover something excellent to say concerning the way in which this pair looks. This just one could have benefited from the vital idea change.
