Made in England, following an original 1930s pattern, The Newstead Trousers are the quintessential addition to your wardrobe.


As we only have limited meterage of this gorgeous merino wool for a handful of trousers, we have taken the decision to offer this fabric on a made to order basis. Ensuring that every pair is made specifically in the size that is required. It's too nice to be sat there in the wrong size.


They take their name from Newstead Abbey, situated only a few miles away from the Stanley Biggs Store.

Most famously known as the ancestral home of Lord Byron, Newstead Abbey has an ancient history dating back to the 10th century, when Kind Henry II of England founded an Augustinian Priory, as part of his many penances for the murder of Thomas Beckett.


It was also another King Henry that saw the end of the Priory. The Dissolution of the Monasteries, during Henry VIIIs reign, saw the end of the Priory as a religious house, with it becoming a private home of Sir John Byron who named it Newstead Abbey to reflect its grand beauty.


Made from a stunning merino lambswool, woven in North Yorkshire, the Newstead Trousers are an absolute must for any gentleman (or lady!).


The cut is directly taken from an original pattern, capturing the elegance and timelessness of early 20th century fashion. Cut with a high waist, with double forward-facing pleats, and a split ‘V’ waistband at the rear, the slacks are finished with an authentic button fly, waist fastening and completed with belt loops.


As per Stanley Biggs original examples, the slacks are cut to a wide leg, measuring 10 inches wide at the ankle, with a 2inch turn up. Available in two finished leg options.


The weight of the wool allows for the perfect drape and silhouette. No detail has been left to chance, with even the buttons being made in England from a natural and eco-friendly material called 'Corozo', otherwise known as 'vegetable ivory'.


Corozo is derived from the nut of the Tagua Palm which grows in the equatorial rainforests of central America and Ecuador. As the ‘mococha’ nut falls to earth quite naturally when they are ripe, it means that there is no human harvesting or cutting of any part of the tree to make our buttons, which blissfully lives on regardless to continue growing and producing nuts for years to come.
