For the most part, our ‘go to hell’ pants are only worn in the Spring and Summer.  That said, this time of year, we may break out the bright red from time to time, and, of course, all bets are off when it comes to plaid.  If you’re looking for a way to liven up your wardrobe for a holiday party, or just a cold day in the office, the Fitzgerald Tartan Trousers from Brooks Brothers are the perfect choice.

First things first, if you’re going to wear these pants, make sure they fit exactly right.  The Fitzgerald cut is already somewhat slim, but when you take them to your tailor to have the inseam taken care of (they come unfinished), don’t be afraid to make a tweak or two if necessary.  Once you have the fit dialed in, these 100% wool pants will become a Winter staple for years to come.  With a base that is similar to a classic blackwatch, offset with just the right amount of red, you’ll be making a bit of a statement without going too far over the top.  Whether you dress them up with Brooks’ Tartan Dinner jacket, or just throw them on with an oxford and your favorite loafers, you can’t go wrong.
