As to the fit, they are straight cut classics, stylish and traditionally cut, made by Gurteen, an English family tailoring business since 1784, and supreme trouser specialists. From Gurteen’s premium Longford range, they are lighter than the autumn chinos yet still built to last and to make you look good and feel comfortable at the same time. They are smart—with a flat front, super-crease legs, belt loops, and matching canvas belt (the correct belt to wear with chinos)—and well made, the fabric pigment washed to resist fading, the outer seams reinforced. And for even more comfort the waistband has a slight stretch (hence the 3% Elastane added to the pure cotton). The two back pockets are buttoned and the two hip pockets have room for anything from your mobile phone and wallet to an engrossing paperback.
