Spotlight On: Our Gender Neutral Pocket Trousers

by Riley Studio |

The starting point for every outfit, the trouser is the hardest working staple in your wardrobe.

We noticed a gap in the market for a timeless, tailored, unisex trouser to suit all needs. So we set out to create the perfect bespoke trouser that does it all. That can be worn by everyone, styled and shared between genders, partners, family members and more.

It was no small task, and after nearly two years of testing we are proud to have created a multipurpose trouser which has been designed to suit all genders and body types. 

Crafted in lightweight Italian Organic Cotton, our Pocket Trouser is our most versatile yet. Also available in luxurious and lightweight Organic Linen for a softer silhouette perfect for the summer months. 

Design Process 

Our design team wanted to create a versatile and adaptable trouser that is flattering on multiple body shapes. We decided to cut them with a straight leg and ankle grazing length, to make them an all purpose style that works well in both summer and winter wardrobes. 

Our designer added a top stitch detail and multiple pockets to give the trouser a utilitarian feel.  By keeping these details tonal and subtle it means they can still easily be dressed up too.

From experience our designer knew that with an elastic waistband, trousers can be worn higher on the waist, making it a high rise, with a shorter leg length. They can also be worn lower on the waist, which provides more room and a longer leg, for whichever body shape or style suits best.

The super straight leg length means that there is extra room cut into the hip area so that they fall the same, even on curvier body shapes. 

Why we love them: 

By creating gender neutral clothing this reduces the total amount we produce and the costs associated with it, by only having one collection, we feel that this helps us to create a conscious collection whilst reducing overall waste. 

One of the great benefits of the Organic Cotton Pocket Trouser is it’s versatility in styling. By altering the button at the ankle cuff, they can be worn in either a relaxed, wide leg, cargo shape or can be cinched in for a tapered fit. 

With a comfortable and easy to pull on elasticated waistband, they can be sized up or down for a looser, or more fitted look. This flexibility means that the trouser can fit a range of body shapes for the ultimate comfort.

Our Organic Pocket Trousers are designed to be extremely comfortable. The soft organic cotton fabric means they are easy to wear and look smart all at the same time. 

Tried and tested, this hard wearing fabric keeps its shape with volume in all the right places, all day long, plus the added pockets give the trousers a subtle, utility feel.

How to style: 

By pairing the trousers with different separates and accessories you can achieve a variety of looks. 

If you want a smarter style, pair with a crisp, white shirt instead of a tee. Similarly, pairing with sandals, boots or heels instead of trainers also helps create an updated smart casual look.
