I've got a fine selection of trousers this time out for Top Shelf Flea Market, many of the old "go-to-hell" variety, perfect for warm weather and sunshine. There's even some pale blue mini-gingham, patch madras, and a killing pair in orange linen, made in Italy, with un-finished hems.
Have you ever seen so many brightly colored trews in the same place outside of Boca Raton?
A classic cotton pair in true kelly green from Lands' End, made in USA, likely 1980s vintage...
Golf pants from Saks 5th Avenue, with buckled side tabs...very Ted Knight in "Caddyshack"...
but the prize goes to this very unusual pair by the venerable Oxxford, rendered in fine worsted wool, full blast dress slacks, only green. Note the signature half waistband. Not for everyone, but don't mess with the guy who buys these.
Dead stock USA made Nantucket Reds by Berle...
Corbin "Prime Poplin" for Murray's Toggery shop, as real as it gets...
and yet another anomaly from Oxxford. You have no idea how hard I'm trying not to keep these.
True, it does take some guts to wear this stuff, but once you cross the line, it's not as hard as you think. With a white tennis shirt and navy blazer, any of these trousers really is downright classic. Lots of money and a yacht do help, but all that's only ancillary. Style is the only required ingredient.
Don't worry if you're tastes run a but more conservative. Khakis, seersucker, and charcoal worsted are also in stock for Spring.
Those Berles are sweet. 34L is usually as close to unfinished as you can get nowadays too.
