I am a t-shirt kind of guy and generally tend to always play it safe when it comes to trousers – literally all I wear is black bottoms day in and day out – and then rely on the top to jazz it up. But then last month I decided it was finally time to step out of my comfort zone and into a new pair of patterned trousers.

This pair of Aston Pants designed by Universal Works, a small company less than 10 years old. They are based in Nottingham but have a few stores in London and do some really nice stuff. I’ve been signed up to their mailing list for a while now and I managed to get these in the sale at only £40 – a pretty good deal in my opinion. I always have trouble finding bottoms that suit me, I’m a fan of loose trousers but too baggy and they make me look stumpy, these fit just right. Although their sizes do come up a bit larger than you’d expect, all of their products are of a great cut and style, all well made and in really nice fabrics.

I teamed these up with an off-white COS top I bought a couple of months ago, which has a really nice saddle detail on the back, and then with a new pair of DM’s that my dad picked up from a plumbers merchants for about £35 – a bloody good find. Like all shoes they took a bit of breaking in but I pushed on through the pain and now they fit like a dream.

I’m like a magpie when it comes to watches, I just want them all – they are my favourite possessions, hands down. This watch was my birthday present from my parents this year, it’s a vintage 70’s Hamilton military watch, I love it! I normally go for a more classic style, but I really like how industrial and sturdy looking it is. The face is really clean cut with a nice bit of yellow detailing, and the fabric strap works perfectly. It has a wind up mechanisms, which didn’t actually take much getting used to.

    Those trousers are pretty interesting, but then everything UW seem to do falls into that bracket. Great price too. The Aston pant is my fav of theirs. Also, score on the old DMs too, look at that old logo!
