As seen on Three-Part Britbox Series "Why Didn't They Ask Evans?", starring Will Poulter and directed by Hugh Laurie.

 

Made in Scotland, following an original 1930s pattern, The Wingfield Trousers are the quintessential addition to your wardrobe.

 

They take their name from the palatial & haunting ruins of Medieval manor house, Wingfield Manor. Situated only a few miles away from Stanley Biggs' offices. Owned by the Earl of Shrewsbury in the 16th century, he was entrusted with the care of Mary, Queen of Scots. She was detained in several of the Earl's Derbyshire homes, Wingfield being one of her longer residences. This is reputably where Mary met Anthony Babington, a fateful meeting that led to The Babington Plot; a failed plot on the life of Queen Elizabeth I that led to the execution of Mary.

 

Made from a stunning 100% Undyed British wool, woven in North Yorkshire, the Wingfield trousers are an absolute must for any gentleman (or lady!). The cut is directly taken from an original pattern, capturing the elegance and timelessness of early 20th century fashion.

 

Cut with a high waist, with double forward-facing pleats, and a split ‘V’ waistband at the rear, the slacks are finished with an authentic button fly, waist fastening and completed with belt loops.

 

As per Stanley Biggs original examples, the slacks are cut to a wide leg, measuring 10 inches wide at the ankle, with a 2inch turn up. Available in two finished leg options.

 

The 13oz weight of the wool allows for the perfect drape and silhouette.

 

No detail has been left to chance, with even the buttons being made in England from a natural and eco-friendly material called 'Corozo', otherwise known as 'vegetable ivory'. Corozo is derived from the nut of the Tagua Palm which grows in the equatorial rainforests of central America and Ecuador. As the ‘mococha’ nut falls to earth quite naturally when they are ripe, it means that there is no human harvesting or cutting of any part of the tree to make our buttons, which blissfully lives on regardless to continue growing and producing nuts for years to come.
