Proper Trousers. Made in Italy. Ready to Wear.
Give your jeans a day off
The Kit Blake Models
Our four pleated style boasts a higher rise, full-cut thigh with slight taper to the hem. Like all our trousers, it does not have belt-loops but is designed to be self-supporting with the aid of buckle and strap side-adjusters or, if you prefer, worn with braces. There are rubberised brace buttons inside the waistband. We offer the Aleksandar in rich flannel wools in shades of greys, seasonal colours and patterns. We also offer wool gabardine and tropical worsted wools. They are the perfect pair of “proper trousers” to have in your wardrobe and are for any time you want to give your jeans a day off.
Based on our Aleksandar model, the “Slim Aleks” has a slimmer profile and a more pronounced taper to the hem. We like this model for summer cloths with less drape such as cottons, linens and seersucker. This style is usually unlined.
The Stretch Aleks is a hybrid of a traditional tailored trouser and a sweatpant. Based on the Slim Aleks style and fit, they are fully-pleated but with an elasticated drawstring waistband. Available in worsted flannel and wool mesh, they are the perfect trousers for travel, leisure and pleasure.
Our four-pleated model has been re-imagined as a pair of summer shorts with a 9" inside leg and a 1 5/8" cuff. Available from May 2021.
The Duke is our single-pleated model but still has the same rise, side-adjusters and brace buttons as the Aleksandar. It is ideal for the nervous pleat wearer and offers definition to the front crease and comfort without excess drape. Available in worsted wool flannels.
The Caine is our flat-fronted model and is slim but not skinny. Cut with a moderate rise it has side-adjusters, slanted pockets and a handy fob pocket cut into the waistband. We usually offer this style in tweeds and heavier cloths.
The Connery is a sporty take on the Caine and, although cut to the same measurements, the cross pockets will make them feel closer in the seat and thigh. If you have an athletic or larger build, you may need to take a size up. The Connery has a raised outside seam and is available in twills and worsted flannels.

Kit Blake is founded on the principle of change, and the tailoring industry’s need for it. Seldom is there the space for super-structured, starch-collared, stiff-shouldered construction these days ...
