    Plus 3/4's

    Hullo All,

    Im looking into getting a pair of the above. Im thinking tweed, (not much else on offer) and must be lined, would ideally spend no more than about 100. Any recomendations?


    Thanks

    I am a middle-aged fool, and I was going to give you www.alexander-james.co.uk as a source, but their plus 2/3/4's cost 125 for ready-made and unlined. They have a good range of tweeds.

    They are good value, though. I got my shooting suit there a couple of years ago: Coat, plus-3's waistcoat and cap semi-bespoke from 22oz Islay tweed for under 500.

    Beware fully lined plus fours.I wear them for work and decided to have a pair fully lined.The problem was i stalk on fairly steep ground and everytime i tried to crawl my knees kept sliding about on the lining making it difficult to get agood shooting rest,i cut the lining out at mid thigh and that sorted the problem.

    Other than keeping with tradition, what advantages does wearing short trousers offer over more conventional clothing? I'm firmly in the camp that thinks they are a ridiculous, out-dated garment, by the way.
