The Rake Sale: Trousers

The Rake selects their favourite trouser styles from the Black Friday Sale.

The flat, dusty and dry cricket wickets in India are a leg spinners paradise. The term ‘rotation’ springs to mind when the ball hits the epicentre of those rough patches. Back in the UK, on the green and moist pitches, international spin bowlers can’t buy a wicket. Sometimes the purchase you can get is what is presented in front of you. The same applies for classic-cut trousers, the piece of apparel that can remain elusive at full cost. Then Black Friday strikes and The Rake does you a turn by reversing the price, thus putting you on the front foot to rotate cordon bleu trousers like you’ve never done before.
