Tartan trews or trousers are quite rightly much favoured by many. They look so very elegant and when venturing beyond one’s own hinterland and are often so much easier to pack than kilt plus sporran plus skean dhu plus kilt hose plus hose garter flashes and ghillies
Good trews will cost in excess of £300 but not of course through Ministry of Tartan.
The term “trews” whilst excluding polyester featherweight golfing embraces well-cut tartan trousers with or without a fishtail back which is simply a matter of personal choice.
As your ever-constant and ever-watchful style gurus we at Ministry of Tartan would advise that sartorially they must of course be:
- 100% wool and well cut. Trust us, the Polyester Pa Bear image or quasi Bay City Roller aspirant is really not attractive.
- Accompanied by a Prince Charlie with vest or black Argyll with or without vest or well-cut standard velvet jacket. For daytime, a tweed Argyll with or without vest.
- Worn with braces (like all formal trousers) otherwise they will hang improperly like builders dungarees or a tartan romper suit. Whilst not creating quite the same sleek lines a kilt belt is acceptable in lieu but never to be worn with a Charlie or Argyll whilst wearing a vest.
- Worn with Chelsea boots. Shoes are wholly inappropriate (ugh!) and the line and cut of the leg will be totally awry and perchance uninformed observers may think you have come straight from a golf course accompanied by that certain rustle of washable polyester static.
