Linen Rich Wide Leg Trousers, £22.50, Marks & Spencer
They’re comfortable too, with an adjustable drawstring waist, because, like the rest of us, who have endured lockdowns over the past two years, there are members of Gen-Z who no longer want to wear clothes that don’t allow them to eat carbs at lunch.
If, like me, you missed the boat on these trousers and your size is sold out, fear not. There are plenty more versions on the high street that, while a little pricier, will serve you just as well. Your perfect linen trouser might even be a little different, with a cropped leg, for instance, or with a proper trouser fly instead of that drawstring waist.
