 Can someone link me to a pair similar to these from HY?  http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/four-season-super-100s-mid-gray-1 The only one I can find on the website is this but they're out of my size, slightly more expensive and look a bit different (slightly darker). http://www.dapperclassics.com/Shop/100-fresco-merino-wool-mid-gray
 How do they fit? I'm a 29" waist but they advise sizing up and let the tailor take things in. I think I'll get the 30".  And I guess 230g, being the lightest wool they have, is the best weight since Australia doesn't get that cold (though Melbourne is freezing right now).
Where to buy grey flannel trousers?    Howard Yount?  http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/four-season-super-100s-mid-gray-1
Going to spend the afternoon cleaning my Red Wing Beckmans.   Should I use Red Wing Mink Oil or Saphir Renovateur or both (which should I apply first)?
Thanks for all the tips so far. Looks like I'm in the sweet spot US 36-38 with narrow waist. Though my large thighs may make it difficult finding raw denim that will fit me.
Heading to Japan at the end of the year (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, etc.).   Just wondering what I should be looking to buy in terms of clothing while I'm over there. Any particular shops I should make an effort to go to?
 My mum has a Diana Ferrari Water and Stain Protector, can I use that for my suede shoes?
Just bought a pair of Loake Pimlico. They are my first brown suede chukkas and I was wondering how to care for them best.   So far I only have shoe trees in them but I know I'll also need a spray to protect it and a brush to clean it. Where can I get these shoe care products? 
I just bought the Saphir Renovateur from Double Monk.   Should I also get the Saphir cream polish (one for black and one for burgundy) for my Loake Aldwych and Strand? Or is the Herring polish that came with the shoes sufficient?   Also how important is a good horsehair brush? All these shoe care products are adding up to be more than the shoes themselves!
