One of our sponsors, Dapper Classics, is running a sale this weekend. Take 20% off shirts, ties, and trousers with the checkout code TRI17.
It can be hard to find good trousers these days for less than $200. Especially if you want a slim, but classic fit. Dapper Classics’ are nice in that they’re made in the USA by one of the best trouser manufacturers in the country. They come in two fits, slim and classic, although both are on the reasonably trim side of things.
The trousers come in a range of high-end English and Italian fabrics, including Super 100 wools, hopsacks, and brushed cottons. I think the ones made for summer are especially worth a look. Fresco, for example, is popular with bespoke customers because it’s a breathable English wool made from high-twist yarns – and a fabric you’ll rarely find in ready-to-wear. It’ll hold a crease, but resist wrinkles, which makes it particularly good for traveling. It is a little scratchy though, so if you want something softer, you’ll probably want to go with the open-weave Italian tropicals. Still breathable on hot days, but will feel gentler against the skin.
With the coupon code, the chinos come down to $116, while the wool trousers start at $156. There are also some grenadine ties in there that come down to $76.
