Hack your fit: Find your perfect pair of trousers with Hackett London

From slim fit chinos to relaxed jeans

Trouser silhouettes are far too often overlooked by men in favour of nailing down the right jacket and shirting styles. However, the fit, cut and rise of one’s trousers can radically alter an ensemble (for better or worse) so it pays to find the look that works best for you. But where to even begin?

Enter Hackett London, a beloved British menswear destination that is renowned for its dedication to detail and excellence in craftsmanship. For decades, the brand has been a steadfast go-to for meticulously-made trousers of varying styles and silhouettes, and it remains at the forefront of trouser design today.

Whether you’re looking for a practical pair of chinos that you can reach for day-to-day, or a more elevated tailored trouser for those elegant occasions, Hackett London has you covered. Find your perfect fit with the brand’s easy-to-follow guide…


The Kensington Slim: Crafted in the Kensington fit, Hackett London’s slimmest fit, these trousers are a refined take on the everyday chino. They’re made from soft cotton twill with a hint of stretch for all-day comfort.

The Kensington Cargo: The slenderness of the Kensington cut meets the urban flair of cargo trousers. Featuring flap pockets on the outer side of each leg, Hackett London’s Kensington Cargo style is functional as it is elegant.

The Newburg Slim: If you prefer your trousers on the slimmer side of things, make Hackett London’s Newburg Slim a key component of your everyday clothing arsenal. Crafted from a specially-developed stretch fabric, they feature a subtle distressed effect at the knees and a classic vintage wash.


The Sanderson: When it comes to smart-casual dressing, Hackett London’s classic Sanderson chinos should be your go-to trousers. With their straight leg and slightly stretchy cotton twill construction, they’re a flattering choice for any body type.


The Sloane: Hackett London’s iconic Sloane chino offers the best of both worlds, with a looser fit around the thigh that leads to a tapered leg from the knee to the hem. Diagonal welt pockets and front pleats add a sense of refinement.


The Trinity: The easy-to-wear five-pocket Trinity trousers offer comfort and low-key style in equal measure. A mid rise and straight leg makes this a flattering choice that will stand the test of time.


The Notting Hill: You don’t have to sacrifice style for the sake of comfort, and these trousers are proof. Crafted from a luxurious wool-cashmere blend and boasting an adjustable drawstring waistband, the Notting Hill trousers are destined to become a mainstay of your everyday wardrobe.
