All, I received an e-mail from North River Outfitters (NRO) They are celebrating their newly redesigned webpage with free shipping on all orders over $50, and %20 off all regularly priced merch. I tried going through the checkout process and the coupon was applied to a pair of Aldens I had in my cart. Just FYI....
I thought khakis and chinos were more or less synonymous. Chinos are better?To answer OP, black and khaki (the color) do not look very good together, IMHO. Although, Thom Brown seems to pull it off with a khaki colored cotton suit, white shirt and black knit tie, but that's a very specific look.

For the flannels, I have six pairs, a very light gray, two medium gray, one darker gray, one charcoal, one very dark blue.I do not have an overcoat yet.
Thanks all for the feedback. I have several shades of gray flannels and one pair of APC NS, plus incotex khakis in a darker shade (British khaki) so it sounds like I'll have plenty of options if I decide to get it. Much appreciated.Notorious, what is SR?
Not to change the subject away from various international cuisines, but I have a question. Out shopping today, as the fall clothes are starting to show up, I spied a very nice sport coat by Polo (Blue label) If was a great fit, but I was hesitant because I couldn't picture what I could wear with it. I didn't get a pic, but I'll give my best description. It is a very country tweedy looking fabric in a dark hunter green, mostly solid, with texture, but no pattern. Would a...
When I was much younger, my father would often get us Indian take out, we always fought over the last piece of papadum, all in good fun of course. Thanks for helping to bring back a very good memory.
