Details Guide

Here at Sunwill, we see ourselves as trouser specialists.

It often gets a little geeky when the conversation moves over to trousers. Our details guide allows you an insight into our vast knowledge of trousers, so that you can feel at home in our realm.

Fly Zipper

On better men's trousers, the front closure is often designed as a fly with zip closing. The zipper is typically equipped with a locking mechanism that means it cannot move up or down on its own.

Coin Pocket

A coin pocket is typically placed either inside or close to the front right pocket. You can use it to hold coins or other small objects. Because the coin pocket is so small, there is less likelihood of what you put in there falling out.

Inner Zip Pockets

Some of our trousers are equipped with an extra, 'secret' pocket. It is a zipped pocket that is placed inside a front pocket. This is a safe place to keep credit cards, etc.

Slant Pockets

Slant pockets can be placed at different angles, but are typically designed as a narrow insert at the front side of the trouser leg. A pair of trousers with slant pockets has a classic look, and the hand fits naturally into the pocket.

Jeans Pockets

Rounded pockets at the front are one of the characteristics of a classic pair of jeans. We use these kind of pockets on our jeans as well as on many of our other models, which you will recognise from classic jeans.

Jetted pockets with flap

A jetted pocket with a flap is a combination of a normal jetted pocket and a flap pocket. Here, the flap is either set into the pocket opening or placed directly over it.

Thigh Pockets

Thigh pockets come in many different shapes and designs. They can be attached, so that they sit on the outside of the trouser leg, or they can also be internal and only visible as an opening. The thigh pocket is placed on either one or both thighs and provides easy access to whatever you choose to keep in your pocket. Thigh pockets are typically equipped with a flap and you will often see thigh pockets that have internal compartments or straps, as these kind of pockets were originally intended as functional pockets.

Zip-off Legs

Zip-off trousers are characterised by the fact that you can zip off the legs and thereby use the trousers as shorts instead. There is typically a zip on either leg, but models can also sometimes be found with two zips on each leg, offering the possibility to transform the trousers not only into shorts but also ¾-trousers.

Elasticated Waistband

In order to offer you increased comfort, we have developed some trousers with an elasticated waist. The elastic is typically placed in both sides of the waistband, making it flexible.

Chest Pocket

A chest pocket is typically placed on the left side of the chest. In blazers, the pocket is mostly for decoration only, while in other garments such as dress shirts and polo shirts, the pocket is often used. On men's blazers, you can often see a decorative handkerchief in the pocket.

Inside Pockets

Most jackets and blazers are supplied with inside pockets. Inside pockets have a practical purpose, as they are intended for keeping things safe. There are many variations of inside pockets; they can be shaped like patched pockets or as jetted pockets and can be both with and without flaps.

½ Lining

In wool trousers, you will often notice that there is an extra piece inside the trouser leg at the front, going from the waist band to the knee. This is known as a ½ lining and makes the trousers comfortable to wear. As wool has a tendency to itch and irritate the skin, this layer of lining is added between the fabric and the leg so that it is the soft lining one feels against the skin, rather than the prickly fabric.

Stretch Lining

In order to provide increased comfort, stretch linings are sometimes used in some close-fitting models. If, for example, a skirt is sewed in a fabric that can stretch, this effect will only work properly if the lining is also able to stretch.

Patched Back Pockets

Just like the rounded front pockets, patched back pockets are a definite hallmark of classic jeans. atched back pockets come in different shapes and are often supplied with stitching to give the trousers a particular look.

Jetted Pockets

A jetted pocket has a pocket opening that is covered by either one or two 'lips'. This opening is the only part of the pocket that is visible. The pocket bag is on the reverse side, which comprises the pocket itself. Jetted pockets offer a classic look and are often used on men's trousers.

Flap Pockets

A pocket flap sits over the pocket and covers it up. This helps to prevent dust and other foreign bodies getting into the pocket, as well as keeping whatever is in the pocket safer. A pocket flap is usually equipped with some kind of closing device – typically a button.

2-part waistband

A 2-part waistband has a cut in the centre of the back. This detail is intended to make it easier to adjust the waistband. The waistband is made extra long so that if you unpick the seam at the back, you have the opportunity to take the trousers in or out. This type of waistband is often seen on better quality wool trousers.

Slit Skirt

In order to allow increased movement, a vertical slit is often made in the back of skirts. The slit is made just long enough to allow the wearer to take a step comfortably without tearing the skirt.

Vent

In blazers, there is often a slit made at the back, either in the middle or at either side. In jackets and blazers, this is called a 'vent'. The function of the vent is to allow increased movement, so that the wearer does not feel trapped when they move or turn around.
