formal trousers main Acne Studios Bianca Saunders Oliver Spencer

Serving as a counteragent to space-age sneakers and fits, the greater presence of formalwear in recent menswear collections is undeniable. Perhaps born out of nostalgia for a sartorial yesteryear when sophistication was king, the vintage revival continues to flourish. Formal trousers line the latest outputs of a diverse list of brands, from streetwear labels to fashion house giants. And luxury online retailers, including MATCHESFASHION, are stocking some of our favorite legwear options right now.

Swedish trailblazer Our Legacy continues to deliver its modern interpretation of formal dress, dropping flamboyant smart wear for the modern man. Fresh from the brand’s FW19 collection, these wide-leg trousers are crafted from twill and come in a color that offers plenty of pairing options for fall.

Taking the tailoring refresh approach a little further, these pants by London-based Bianca Saunders are part of a collection that questions modern masculinity, mixing up classic formal cuts. The trousers come in a fluid satin that gives off a dazzling two-tone effect.
