Now the trousers, at the time of their discovery back in late July 2009, were the easiest garment to find and obtain – and cheap into the bargain.
Someone spotted that they were a simple Houndstooth Skinny Jean from TopMan, and they were widely available for £35 at most branches across the UK. The only minor problem was finding a pair to fit.
The purchase was painless and within a week I had my pair of trousers – and they fitted!
Since then, the style has been discontinued (as is becoming the routine with all the elements of Matt Smith’s costume it seems) and stocks rapidly ran out. I did just manage to grab a second pair online before supplies were totally depleted, and at half-price in their autumn sale, so a double result!
Since then they have been totally sold out and are unobtainable.
So my trousers are sorted.
That was easy.
Then amazingly there was a second dip at getting a pair of matching screen-worn trousers.
Some photos emerged of the filming for the last few episodes to go before the cameras.
This time Matt could clearly be seen wearing trousers that were not a houndstooth pattern.
Had he changed his trousers? Well, yes, apparently he had!
The forums kicked in again and within a few hours it was spotted that they were again a pair of TopMan skinny jeans, but this time a grey plain colour.
Again these were reasonably priced and available in all sizes. No point going to high street branches (after last time) so I opted for the online purchase as before.
Dispatch was equally quick and another costume element is acquired and bites the dust!
At the time or writing they are still on the TopMan website, but a slowly depleting range of sizes are on offer.
Grab them while you can guys!!!
