The Melbourne Trousers
Coming Soon for 2021!
The Melbourne Trousers.
Made in England our ready to wear Melbourne Trousers will soon be available in three authentic British fabrics.
Made in 100% British Wool, with wool woven in Yorkshire and Scotland, the Melbourne’s are an absolute must for any gentleman (or lady!).
They take their name from Viscount Melbourne, the first ‘Prime Minister’ and famed confidante of Queen Victoria. His father was made Baron of Melbourne, in Derbyshire.
The style is directly taken from an original pattern, capturing the elegance and timelessness of early 20th century fashion.
Cut with a high waist, with double forward-facing pleats, and a split ‘V’ waistband at the rear, the slacks will be finished with a button fly and belt loops.
As per our original examples, the slacks will be cut to a wide leg, measuring 10 inches wide at the ankle and finished with 2-inch turn-ups.
The 13oz weight of the wool allows for the perfect drape and silhouette.
The wools we have selected are authentic and entirely British.
You will have a choice of a Harris Tweed, woven in Scotland, in a Russet Brown Twill.
A 100% Undyed British Wool, woven in Yorkshire, in a Grey Twill and a Brown Diamond Check, also woven in Yorkshire.
Our trousers will come in a standard leg length, but if you do have a unique requirement, please do get in touch to discuss.
