At Kit Blake, we’re big proponents of flannel, which is why it features among our iconic products. Flannel trousers have long been a staple in men's fashion, and for good reason.

The Timeless Appeal of Flannel

Flannel trousers have stood the test of time, maintaining their popularity and timeless appeal throughout the years. Their classic yet contemporary look makes them suitable for a variety of occasions, from business meetings to social gatherings. The soft, brushed texture of flannel fabric adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit and make them incredibly versatile. Wear a Grey flannel such as our Aleks Mid-Grey or Caine Mid-Grey with a sports jacket to the office or with knitwear on the weekend.

Unmatched Comfort

When it comes to comfort, flannel trousers reign supreme. The wool fabric is known for its inherent softness and warmth, ensuring you stay comfortable in colder weather. The natural breathability of flannel allows for proper airflow that will make sure you’re not too warm in cold weather, but also keeps cool when the weather gets warmer. Whether you're spending long hours at the office or attending formal events, Kit Blake flannel trousers will keep you feeling at ease throughout the day.

Flannel trousers are the most versatile trousers in your wardrobe

Flannel trousers offer remarkable versatility, allowing you to effortlessly transition from casual to formal settings. We always recommend starting to wear flannel by simply wearing them instead of your jeans, you'll quickly get a feel for it.

Pair them with a crisp white shirt and a blazer for a smart look that exudes professionalism. Alternatively, dress them down with heavy knitwear or a casual shirt for a relaxed yet refined outfit perfect for social outings or weekend gatherings, as an alternative to jeans.

 

A Touch of Elegance

Flannel trousers add a touch of elegance to any outfit. The fabric's subtle texture and depth create a refined and sophisticated look that sets you apart from the crowd. Whether you choose a traditional solid color such as Grey or Biscuit, or a subtle pattern such as our Caine Grey Check, flannel trousers lend an air of understated luxury to your ensemble, making a subtle statement of style and taste.

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. "
