The trousers are made for pursuits in the countryside - not just for looking good; the comfortable fishtail back; the warm and stout fabric; and the beautiful nature-like brown and green hues.
The plus-fours must be from the first years of Hackett London making their own collection of clothes - until then Jeremy Hackett and his business partner Ashley Lloyd-Jennings sold refurbished vintage gentlemen's clothing.
As I described in a previous post (Plus-fours and Norfolk jacket) the plus-fours are a natural match to the Norfolk jacket. Today I combined a tweed bow tie, a Fair Isle knit, green shooting socks and the Norfolk with my plus-fours. Perfect for a cold January day in the country side.
