Look At My F**cking Red Trousers: The only blog for people who, err, like to look at people wearing red trousers

Sometimes the best blogs are the simplest ones. Consider Look At My F**cking Red Trousers. It’s a blog, which, well, features people wearing, you guessed it, red trousers. Its focus is tight and it never strays off topic. The snaps of red trouser-wearing folk, many sent in by fans of the blog, are good but it is often the short, snappy, humorous and often downright nasty captions which make the blog stand out from the “Ronseal” (it does exactly what it says on the tin) blog crowd.

So, why should all we be interested in red trousers and their wearers? Here’s the answer from the London-based blog’s authors: “from South Ken to Shoreditch, from Jermyn Street to Mare Street – these days anyone that’s anyone is wearing red trousers. If you want your leg-coverings to let the world know that you’ve got a few quid and don’t care who knows it, or that you have some big ideas about what’s on at the ICA right now – or simply that you are completely insane (but in a mainly non-stabby way) – then you’d better get your wife or girlfriend to take those jeans and chinos down to the charity shop post-haste! Because there’s only one type of trousers you’ll be wanting to wear, and that’s RED TROUSERS. In fact – if you can’t wear red trousers you’d be better off wearing NO TROUSERS AT ALL. That’s what I say.”
