To coincide with the launch of our premium flat-front flannel trousers, we wanted to explore some easy ways to style any new trousers appropriately for the warmer months.
Below, we will discover more about the luxury Loro Piana fabric used across our flannel trouser collection and delve deeper into three stylish ways to wear flannel trousers whilst keeping cool this summer.
WHAT FABRIC DO WE USE ON OUR FLANNEL TROUSER COLLECTION?
Our trousers use semi-worsted flannel virgin wool, offering a premium fabric, clean hand-feel and luxurious finish. This delicate fabric ensures the trouser have a natural texture within the wool fabric, whilst ensuring a clean drape across your legs.
Our stunning textured flannel fabric comes from the world-renowned Loro Piana, who have been a leader in fabric manufacturing for over 100 years. The family-run business has been making fine fabrics for six generations of skilled craftsmanship. The fabric used on our flannel trousers is a wool and cashmere blend, ideal for impeccable trousers that fit perfectly.
The Perfect Weight
Our flannel trousers have been designed and produced with our partner mills of highly qualified and expert craftsmen. The luxurious virgin wool fabric used across the collection comes with a substantial weight of 320g, this ensures that the trousers are breathable and regulates your body temperature in the hotter months.
HOW TO STYLE YOUR FOOTWEAR WITH FLANNEL TROUSERS
Typically, flannel trousers have a 2-5cm rolled hem to create a brilliant, layered finish to the trousers and differentiate them from formal suit trousers. This means you can easily show off your smart summer footwear with ease.
We would always suggest opting for a loafer with your flannel trousers in summer. Loafers are a classic slip-on style of shoe that does not feature laces or other fastenings. They are typically made of leather or suede and shaped like a moccasin with a flat heel.
Loafers can be worn with traditional socks, liners or without either. We suggest having a barefoot with your shoes in the summer months, as this means your feet will stay cool. The fact your ankle will be slightly on show with the raised hem of the trousers will also help regulate your temperature.
WHAT CLOTHING ITEMS TO WEAR WITH FLANNEL TROUSERS IN SUMMER
Flannel trousers are incredibly versatile and work perfectly with all types of summer clothing, such as shirts, polo tops and tailored jackets, offering a smart-casual finish to any outfit. In addition, the subtle texture found within flannel means it will complement most commonly used summer jacket fabrics such as cotton and linen.
Below we explore three classic items that in your wardrobe to easily pair with your new flannel trousers.
