I am not gay or overly a fan of Bros, as Carl seems to think in me buying these trousers.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 April 2022
The summer was upon us... I had a spare thirty pounds to invest in clothing, and this year, with the return of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's spirit, I felt like wearing something beyond the mundane. My mate Carl, when last speaking of my trousers, said they looked like old men's trousers.
So during the peak of my mid life crisis (third time around), age 47, I thought 'No... Festival and beach season is upon us, and I want to look like a modern ice cool cyber ninja'.
So I sought about purchasing the sacred trousers of coolery.
They arrived quickly, and I excitably opened them up.
I wore them for one day as a tester, but found out two major things about these trousers.
One: They are not for cold weather at all. Their fabric is very light, and even if it's only mildly chilly, you will feel naked and freezing. Are they comfortable though? Oh yes... Very much so. I think these awesome pantaloons were designed for that primarily, and probably indoors.
Two: This is where I question the genius of the designer. The leg pockets come with intentional holes in them. You heard that right. Pockets, that come with intentionally placed holes. Which is where fashion and pragmatism clash heads with huge ferocity. Okay, so anything over the size of an inhaler will be fine to store, but don't put in things which could pour out. Like sand. In fact, these trousers would be epic to use as subtle sand ejection techniques, a la, 'The Great Escape', where they hide the earth deposits they've exhumed from the earth and displace it over time by smuggling it out in their trousers.
Quite why you want holes in pockets is beyond my comprehension of logic. It's like buying a cup with no base. It is, in short, a bit mad.
Also, three... The pieces of material with the slogan 'forever young' are purely for peacock display, and don't serve any purpose. I also bought the hoodie, and removed them from the forearms as it was too much. I looked like a super hero covered in graffitied ticker tape.
I do like the cut and style, and fabric of these trousers, but pockets with holes and flappy bits that could catch on door handles as I sprint through to save the princess are possible a step beyond the rubicon.
Still, I SHALL be wearing them in the summer, and the hoodie is great anyway... Beautiful cut, like an urban Jedi's robe.
I have only given four stars, and not five for the three reasons given. They ARE cool though, and the comfy factor is worth the four stars alone. Urban ultra cool street pyjamas for the win.
