Those nice little details that make a difference: your average lightweight linen and cotton chambray trousers become unique in this beautifully crafted version from Incotex, with a delicate colour touch and the subtle white piping detail on the side.

The Dandy Touch


Adding a of dash of sophisticated uniqueness to your outfit does not require too many tricks or gimmicks.
