I like my trousers to be either incredibly tiny shorts, or something longer than knickerbockers. In between, the Bermuda shorts, zone, that is dead to me. Who wants to see my knees without seeing my thighs?
Also, tweed. I love tweed. Hard to get in Australia.
I think what I am trying to say is that my aesthetic is “golf slattern”.1
Knickerbockers and other such fogey nonsense
a.k.a. golfing knickers, plus fours, breeks (which I think have less overhang below the knee), plus twos (ditto). Hard to acquire in Australia.
In a semi-classic vein:
- Knickerdog (US, knickerbocker conversions)
- Plus Fours and Breeks | Fogey Unlimited (UK)
- newfanglednatty (UK)
There is a special sub genre of ironic loud golfwear. See suppliers Kings Cross Knickers (US), Golfknickers.com (US) ships actual nice plaid (although they are in polyester). loudmouthgolf do made-to-order knickerbockers with fabric patterns reminiscent of Windows 3.11 freeware wallpaper, or posterized vomit etc (US). So does Royal & Awesome but with more amusing names and a higher cotton content (but only plus twos, not plus fours). Readygolf are a reseller occasionally offering good deals.

Don’t get me wrong, I hate golf, I merely like being a 1920s golf poser.↩︎
