How The Strokes changed not just music, but men’s jeans too

They might not be for everyone, but since the mid noughties and in spite of the best efforts to re-market the Boot Cut – Levi’s have recently gone with Boot Cut Skinny – the drainpipes as …

The case for red trousers – not just for toffs and hipsters

As a feckless youth in the mid 80s I once bought a pair of red trousers. I chose them because all my favourite 60s bands seemed to favour brightly coloured trews in their key end of the decade psychedelic phase.
