■ City gentlemen who are partial to a pair of loud red chinos, take heed. The results of a survey by polling firm YouGov that were released yesterday have revealed that almost half of Britons gave the red trousers a firm “dislike”. Forty-three per cent of those asked were indifferent to rosy chinos, while only 12 per cent admitted to being fans of the pantalon-rouge. However, there was some good news for City boys who rock the rah look when off duty – Londoners are twice as likely to be red trouser-friendly as people from the Midlands, Wales or Scotland.
