Blackwatch Trousers

Sometimes, one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe can be something you least expect. Take, for example, a pair of trousers in Blackwatch plaid. Ideal for many holiday kits, they (surprisingly) don't look out of place after the holiday hangover has worn off. They pair well with a navy sport coat or even a Harrington jacket, for a decidedly punk feel. Even better, these super 120s wool trousers from Epaulet feature a fit that's perfectly slim while extremely soft and comfortable. These are the kind of pants you could wear for hours on a plane, and step right off still feeling relaxed while looking sharp as ever. Leave the jeans and chinos in your carry-on—meet the trousers that bring tidings of comfort and joy.

Styling Tip

Extend the life of these pants by making them more casual with a bomber jacket, henley and understated sneakers.
