Freewheelers 'Gideon' 13oz HBT Trousers (Straight Tapered Fit)

We know you've been waiting for some elegant yet relaxed dark trousers...These from FW do not disappoint!

These early worker style trousers come from the 1890s to the turn of the century! During that time, workwear styling was more formal and tailored than you might imagine! Of course, FW took it to another level!

Many HBT trousers have texture but few incorporate the fading potential of thread dying! This 13oz HBT has a unique soft vertical texture and thanks to the thread dyed colour, you'll see more variations of charcoal colours shining out with use.

Looking closely at the pocket reinforcement, single back pocket and cinch back adjuster, you can see FW executed this one perfectly! The thread is extra heavy and features a curvey pattern for a better fit around your waist which makes up for a more modern look.

If you've never tried FW's high standard trousers, we guarantee it's a next-level experience!
