Keep a lookout on the bay for Incotex. I have bagged a few BNWT for around £50 & are superb quality trousers.

Big fan of Dockers and Edwin chinos, H&M also surprisingly good for the money.

Incotex are truly great. Incredibly pricey but can often be found discounted or as Disco said on the bay. Various cuts as well.

On a cheaper budget maybe Norse Aros? Never tried them myself but might be a good compromise

picked up a navy blue cashmere/wool dinner jacket from charity shop the other day for a bargain.

not usually my cup of tea at all but thought why not at that price. might wear to some awful smart casual event with my bird's mates.

advice on colour/style of trouser to go for? it looks weird with black pants and someone shoot me if I would ever wear it with beige.

cheers.

Don't think I've ever seen a dressed down dj look good.

Has to be part of a black tie getup really

just usually never dress up unless its full suit so inspiration was needed.

nice one chaps. I like the formal pant idea. strangely never really considered it before. chino/blazer was feeling far too public schoolboy anyway.

Antibody recommend some lightweight chinos for summer? This humidity is killer and jeans not an option. Shorts not good for work or the evening.

Dark navy would be great. I don’t like the cut of incotex.

Can you not get away with linen, NB? If it's humidity that's an issue then chinos might not be the best bet. Pretty sure APC do a light(ish) weight version but they may be a little too casual for work.

Around the pelvis and thigh, yes, but much more tapered towards the ankle. There's a slight crop too.

Never got on with the Ols. Were pretty much snopants.

Do you have a fitpic illwill?

I think linen is the way to go. Rock the linen, bang the women is what my old man used to say.
