A Design Crime – Why I Didn’t Buy Another Pair Of DAKs Trousers

For the last twenty-five years, I’ve had a pair of DAKs cord trousers for when I need to be smart. Last year, I bought a replacement pair and they were fine.

The original pair were still comfortable and warm and I wore them on my holiday in Iceland. I unfortunately ripped them on something, so there was only one place for them – the bin!

So I thought I’d buy another pair and went to their shop.

But what a disappointment!

They’ve been designered and now there are three buttons to do the trousers up. With my gammy hand that is a no-no! Or imagine getting taken short and wanting to disrobe quickly.

It’s almost as bad as the dreaded button-fly!

I went elsewhere!
