Classic Goth: 'Red/Black Boot-Cut Darkness Stripe Rock Pants' at Slash'n Burn

The simple vertical stripe can be translated to numerous alternative styles. What usually determines the vibe one gets from stripy trousers is the width of the stripes in relation to the ones of the other colour - there is a ginormous cap between the aesthetics of the classical pinstripe and a very wide black-and-red stripe, such as we see here. The wide stripe is perhaps a little less formal than the pinstripe, but also more dramatic while still retaining the elegance of the stripe, which is further enhanced here by the subtle bootcut (in pipeleg style these trousers would definitely be close to Punk).

Found here. They are also available in black/grey and black/white.
