Say hello to your new favourite trousersOctober 2018 Style Advice
Many of you have been asking for a pair of tailored trousers to complement our wide variety of lovely tops, shirts and tunics. As you know, listening to our customers is at the heart of everything we do here at David Nieper, so we set ourselves the challenge of creating the perfect pair. We researched the ladieswear market and listened to all your suggestions – a flattering fit, all-day comfort, a quality fabric and so on. The trousers were 18 months in the making and involved our product developers, pattern cutters, garment technologists, designers and, very importantly, our sample machinists. We think you’ll love the flat-fronted, smart look of the new style, as well as their comfort and versatility. We can’t wait for you to try them!
What makes them so special?
There are lots of things that are different about these trousers. Our team paid a great deal of attention to the back rise. Many brands adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but we researched the optimum depth for each individual size. So you’ll always get comfort, cover and confidence, whether you’re sitting or standing.
There’s also a special smoothing panel behind the zip. It creates a flat-front look for a smart, streamlined appearance. Fit and wear trials we conducted on some David Nieper colleagues confirmed that it helps the trousers keep their shape even after a long day.
Another key thing we knew we had to get exactly right was the waistband. We decided to fuse the waistband in a heated press and then reinforce it with stitching. This technique keeps the waistband firm and stable, so it won’t stretch over time and your trousers will continue feeling just like new.
Secret elastic panels at each side ensure a perfect fit for every figure – all the comfort of elastic with a tailored look. The panels create a gentle ‘give’, so the trousers fit perfectly, whatever shape you are. Putting the elastic at the sides, rather than at the back or all around, means the trousers stay smooth and smart.
We know our customers love trousers with pockets, so they were a must-have for this style. They are expertly cut and stitched to lie smoothly without detracting from the streamlined appearance of the trousers. Nonetheless, they are lovely deep pockets that are really useful.
Ways to wear your new tailored trousers
We selected a luxurious, lightweight wool-rich blend for this timeless style. It gives a smart look with a little stretch for all-day comfort and it holds its shape perfectly, wear after wear.
