For instance, the most popular and longest selling Robert Bruce school trouser and school short is our Eton tailored belt & loop trouser and our Yale tailored belt & loop short. These are a double pleated front style and are primarily worn by high school and senior year boys. This classic style not only features in school classrooms but also in men’s fashion and more formal attire.

The features of Robert Bruce trousers and shorts set us apart from all the other imitators. We still construct our Eton Tailored Trousers and Yale Tailored Belt and Loop Shorts with open seams from the waistband right to the bottom hem which is also generously allowed. These trouser and short styles present with two back jetted pockets with button tab. The front styling is double pleated with an extension top waistband, fly front, fob pocket and side cross pockets. Robert Bruce range both Eton Trouser and Yale Short styles starting from a boy’s size 6 (22’’ or 57cm) up to a Men’s 12 ¼ (52’’ or 132cm) and cater for tall and stout fits too.

For our poly viscose mid grey melange, charcoal melange and navy twill serge range, Robert Bruce’s fabrics are top dyed, anti-pilling, hold a high colour fast rating of 4/5 and our thread count is maintained to a high grade, unlike others who make their garments ‘feel’ heavier by finishing with coatings and stiffeners. For all our fabrics, we only ever ‘top dye’. This will guarantee the highest level of colour penetration and colourfast standard to perform under regular wear and washing conditions.

These same fabrics are utilised for the Robert Bruce range of junior trouser and junior short styles.

Robert Bruce’s best-selling junior style trouser and junior short is known as Prep elastic back. Robert Bruce patternmakers successfully adapted the classic style of the pleated front tailored trouser and introduced an elasticated back waistband for the junior boys. This makes it easier for the them to dress into and no belt is required while giving the garment a stylish, tailored look like the big kids. The Prep elastic back trousers are also harder wearing as they feature a double knee, that is, an extra layer of reinforced fabric over the knees so they can withstand play time wear and tear. So they don’t lose their lunch money, the front fob pocket is zippered while the back patch pocket is buttoned. The Prep elastic back trouser and Prep elastic back short has a single pleated fly front and button hole closure on the waistband.

Robert Bruce range these prep elastic back styles from a boy’s size 3 (46cm relaxed waist) to a Youth’s size 20 (80cm relaxed waist).
