Community Clothing Founder Patrick Grant Relaunches E.Tautz Best-Selling Field Trouser

Updated: Jun 22, 2023

E. Tautz and Community Clothing are delighted to announce that they have joined forces to re-launch the best-selling field trouser.

Originally launched in 2015, the E. Tautz field trouser achieved iconic status, worn by designers, editors, stylists and cool kids from New York to Tokyo. Based on a 1950’s US military field trouser they were cut ultra-wide and very long and used about 60% more fabric than any normal chino.

The relaunched E. Tautz X Community Clothing field trouser has been sewn at Cookson & Clegg in Blackburn on the same machines, by the same guys and from the very same super tough heavyweight cotton twill as the original. The only difference is the Community Clothing label inside. And the price, which because of Community Clothing’s unique pricing model will be £115, about half the original.

“At Community Clothing making quality timeless clothes is our mission so bringing back the Tautz field trouser seemed like a no-brainer. The original field trousers were massive in Japan, while US GQ wrote a piece entitled ‘Patrick Grant Will Make You Believe in Wide Leg Pants’. I met Ralph Lauren once wearing them and he asked me where I’d got them. They’re still the trousers I wear the most.” (Patrick Grant, Founder, Community Clothing)

Community Clothing enlisted photographer Stuart Clapp, himself a fan of a baggy pant, who shot the new field trouser in and around Leigh-on-Sea, Southend and Shoeburyness on the Essex Coast.

The E. Tautz X Community Clothing Field Trouser will be available from Thursday 22nd June exclusively at in three colour options - navy, olive and stone, priced at £115.
