Wanted: a pair of plus fours

#1 · Posted: 17 Oct 2004 01:07
Does anyone know where a guy can get a pair of plus-fours for less than $100? I'd like them for halloween and I never thought they would be so hard to find.

I tried eBay, but couldn't find anything.

Try www.golfknickers.com; they sell classic golf apparel (knickerbockers, plus-fours...); the prices seem over the top, but if items are in their sale, you might get lucky.

Thanks, I never saw that site in my searching. The prices are high but still lower than others I found.

If its just for a halloween costume couldn't you just take a pair of brown trousers and elasticate the bottoms? I take it you're doing Tintin as a costume?

Yeah, you could make your own costume, if you just want to wear it one night (unless you want to parade around in knickerbockers for the rest of the year, which to me sounds like a good idea).
I'm sure there are patterns for those out there, or maybe you could tackle a pair of Capris, and do as suggested.

Hello friends.
I don't seem to be lucky enough to find the plus fours which Tintin wears.
I know it sounds a bit crazy, but I do want them in order to have adventures. :P
They seem to be available in foreign parts, but I can't find them here anywhere.
Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot :)

How about a quick Google search for "plus fours"? Give it a go.

Sorry, I quite forgot to write about my location. I'm from Calcutta, in India. And I did search for the plus fours in Google, but didn't get quite what I was looking for in particular. Perhaps anyone could direct me the name of a site to look for it? Thanks.
