The Hollywood trouser is a Sexton signature, but the design has been around since the 1930s. True to the original, these are cut with generous, flowing lines for an authentic art-deco look. Incidentally, they take their name from the trousers that Hollywood costume departments use to run-up en masse in the ‘40s. Naturally, ours aren’t ‘run up’, but instead are handmade to a Sexton pattern from the best Italian flannel
Houndstooth Flannel wide-leg Hollywood Trousers
This season, we’ve decided to push our Hollywood tops in some slightly different directions. This pair pays homage to the original Nutter’s look that Edward was cutting in the ‘70s; it’s wide parallel legs offer a modern take on Oxford bags. Like our other tops, they’re made with a structureless ‘grown on’ waistband and dropped belt-loops that enable them to sit high on the waist and remain comfortable to wear. They feel modern and clean, but carry a touch of art deco Sexton nostalgia too. In soft 11oz Italian woollen flannel, this houndstooth pair is richly textured and work a treat paired with classic navy or charcoal rollbacks and our new season brushed cotton overshirts, for a sophisticated smart-casual look.
