New Man Trousers
When I have found these trousers on Menlook, I told myself “incedible, New Man is back!” (the brand was very popular in France during the 1970s). Since then, I have made a few research to realise that the brand never really dissapeared. But the company’s buy out in 2010 with a new CEO allow us talking about a coming back. Today, I hereby present you my favourite item of their autumn-winter 2013 collection, these trousers which made me rediscover the “both way logo brand”.
What I like the most on these trousers is the color. It is written “brown” in the description. I would have said “brick” or “rust”, whatever, I like the color. Neither chinos nor jeans, they are made of a quite thick cotton drill with a 2% elasthane to give a stretch fabric. The cut is straight with a slightly tapered leg. New Man designers have made strong stylistic choices on these trousers with buttonned vertical pockets and cuffs at the bottom.
Reception of the product, the color is as expected, and I tried to give you a true render with the pictures. The only think I had a doubt about was the cut. A nice surprise was to find out how the trousers fitted perfectly. I really like these tapered fits leaving some comfort from the thighs (yes sir, I’m sporty!).
These trousers are really perfect for the mid-season and match greatly boots (like the picture above previewing a shooting we’ll publish next week). The price is average for something we could usually call nice trousers, €119. I guess they’ll be more decent on sales. I really can’t tell about the rest for the moment, but this only piece of clothing definitely worth it! Any opinion about something in the collection you would have seen in store?
