A (video) Guide To Kit Blake Styles

At Kit Blake, we currently offer 4 styles of trousers, namely the Aleks, the Grant, the Duke and the New Caine. We want you to find the best fit for you, and after listening to your feedback, we've asked one of our friends Jon Paul to wear his normal size in all Kit Blake trousers, to show you how they they fit. The video is at the bottom of this page.

The model is 186CM / 6' 1", and he wears a size 32 in all Kit Blake trousers, finished with a 32' inseam.

The Aleks:

The Aleks is our best-selling model and the original style we launched Kit Blake with. It features two inward-facing deep pleats and is cut to sit higher on the waist. The leg is generous, in a classic fit. This is the trouser for those looking for a beautiful, traditional trouser, with a full cut, high waist, and no taper. Like all Kit Blake trousers, they feature our signature side adjusters and therefore, do not require a belt.
The Grant:

The Grant are based on our Aleks style. They have a similarly generous fit, with a high rise and two inward-facing deep pleats, but they have a slightly more pronounced taper from the knee down. Like all Kit Blake trousers, they feature our signature side adjusters and do not require a belt.
The Duke:
The Duke is our single-pleated style. These trousers feature a generous leg, in between our Aleks and Grant styles, although the single pleat means there is slightly less volume in the front of the trousers. This model is ideal for conservative business environments or first time pleat wearers.  Like all Kit Blake trousers, they feature our signature side adjusters and do not require a belt.
The New Caine:
The New Caine are our flat-front trouser style, and the leanest we offer. They sit lower on the waist than our pleated trousers, but still sit well above the hips, and have a slim leg, without being too skinny. Like all Kit Blake trousers, they feature our signature side adjusters and therefore, do not require a belt.

They talk about Kit Blake

"Kit Blake is the only brand in this (RTW trouser) guide dedicated to making trousers only. Their classic, Savile Row-inspired designs are made in Italy from British and Italian cloths, and sometimes it’s damn refreshing to try a product which is truly distinctive."

Permanent Style

"Kit Blake focus on expertly crafted garments, all made in Italy with the finest clothes from some of the most well-known English and Italian mills."

The Gentleman's Journal

"Tailored to a very high standard in true English style, there is probably no trouser more accomplished for all seasons."

The Rake Magazine

"That’s why we’re excited about Kit Blake: a relatively young menswear label (founded in 2018) that takes the mission of making beautiful tailored trousers to new heights – by pushing a quality product that is timeless and aesthetically pleasing, without compromising on price."

Boss Hunting

"A good pair of weighty flannel trousers are an essential for the AW season. They are versatile enough to take you to the office or around the park, depending on how you style them, and cosy enough to withstand the bitter winter wind. " 
Square Mile

" Kit Blake’s proposition was a standalone, ready-to-wear trouser of the kind that is increasingly difficult to find outside of bespoke: classic proportions, luxury fabrics and the styling cues of traditional English tailoring. "
