Red Trousers are being killed off by hipsters!

Poor MoSe.

They were once the hallmark of the well-heeled gentleman, perhaps enjoying a Pimms on the lawn of their Oxbridge alma mater or visiting a country show.
But the simple pleasure of a pair of red trousers could soon be a things of the past, after they became a victim of their own success.
Red trousers have become so “stigmatised”, experts say, that their association with hooray Henry-types has left owners too shy to wear them.

They were a bad idea in the 1970's and they are still a bad idea today.

Killing red trousers has to be politically incorrect.

"the simple pleasure of a pair of red trousers".
