Relaxed-fit Trousers with Side Pleats

Forgotten Tribes


Eastern traditional garments were often worn by folding and draping fabrics around the body.

The side pleats design not only forms the trousers unique silhouette, but also enables the wearer the maximum ease in the daily movement.

      Beautiful trousers

      These trousers are great - super comfortable and stylish. I can look sharp and feel like I'm wearing sweatpants at the same time - happy days :) They're surprisingly flattering and versatile - I was worried that they would be too wide on me in person, but they fit really well. They look just like the pictures on the website. The cut is unique, the placement of the seams makes them look and feel really special, and the fabric draped beautifully. The quality feels great too. I've washed them with no problems - they keep their shape and colour in the washing machine. Highly recommended.

      Love these trousers!

      I’d been looking at these trousers online for a while and am so pleased I ordered them. They are stretchy round the waist, the perfect length and a flattering shape. I love them so much I might buy another pair the same!

      Nice trousers

      The FT service was faultless, a decent price and really fast delivery. Unfortunately the trousers were not suitable for me, the cotton blend not as expected, but a good shopping experience, thank you
