Formerly characterised by being a ‘suit leftover’, a decent pair of formal trousers not in need of a jacket has climbed up the ladder and become a star of its own. With trouser specialists like PT01, Berwich, Canali and Lardini the make of a formal trouser has become as important as the construction of a jacket. Quality characteristics include split back waistbands, pleated inside (or curtain) linings, the number of buttons for closure, the quality of the cotton pocketing, the finishing of the seams etc. Wool still dominates, and style choices include higher and wider waistbands, pleats or plain fronts, brace buttons and side adjusters, and raw length for individual finishing. Baltzar sets high standards for trousers and the formal collection is no exception.
Baltzar has not always been an online retailer. For many years, the stores were the only locations where Baltzar menswear was to be found. Since 2014 the online platform has welcomed two new friends, both of whom's dedication has been to align the traditional values of bricks and mortar stores with the convenience of online shopping. The Baltzar concept includes a variety of exclusive services. Beyond home-delivery, we offer click and collect: pick up your order in one of our stores for tryout and fitting. If it doesn't fit, you can return it on the spot.
