It's the 'Flintstone' and 'Midnight' colours that have the SH21 decorative lining according to the promotional email.
Did anyone actually get this promo code to work? I tried it on the day and like a few reports on Facebook it didn’t work at all. Haven’t checked since in protest though... :lol:
I bought a pair before the CW email with the promo code came through 😭

It works for me as I like Spoke and CW! There's kind of a similarity in terms of doing something differently, in Spoke's case it's the same pair of trousers but with a choice of cuts and a far better range of sizes than you'd get elsewhere. I think they go with the designed in Britain (made elsewhere) tag line like CW too.

I realise I sound a bit fanboy-ish about it all! Tbf, I was surprised when the promo emails dropped but I like outcome although I can't see it being more than a one-off promo.
That makes some sense.

There will inevitably be those who think it is a bit of a gimmick. They would be advised not to encourage CW to drop their trousers.

For those feeling tense, uptight or even uncomfortable with the word ‘chino’, much as I have been, I just thought I’d mention every pair comes with a panic button. 😉

When I first saw the email I thought it was a wind up.
Oris, CW, Tag and a few others.
