Trousers and their meanings...


In the nineteen twenties, these trousers were the rage at Oxford. They weren't flared from the knee, just very roomy, and probably only fitted where they touched! They were the original Oxford Bags!

But if you search online for Cambridge bags, you get this...



This is the sort of investigation which causes an ageing Scrobs much concern, and I seriously wonder if such inquiries will ever end...

What do you get if you go to Oxbridge then ?

Pink trousers or a baggy bag ?

Yes, and yes, Elecs!

Comfortable trousers are a must when there's a lot of bending to do...
