Well, the OP said "Slacks/Pants" and mentioned that he favored "thicker materials" and that one of his favorites was "Dickies." I can't remember when I last saw Dickies in super 100s or a cashmere flannel blend and, if he is wearing Dickies to a law office, then a pair of heavy cotton Incos in dark or neutral color would surely be considered a reasonable step up, no?
I'd go back and swap that R1 for an R2 - the R1 is pretty thin - more like a heavier base layer than a mid layer and the R2 has an amazing range and is much more versatile. Better to be a bit too warm and open a zipper to vent for a few minutes than be cold an unable to get warm. Plus they are having a 30% sale right now and a easy return policy. You can also look on 6pm.com where they dump a bunch of their overstock. Re: Nau. I have a bunch of their stuff as they are...
I'd look at Incotex High Comfort chinos. They come in a regular weight and a heavier "winter weight" that sounds like it is right up your alley - I have 4 pair of the heavier ones and love them. You can find these regularly on fleabay and over in B&S whenever Daffy's has a dump of them. Prices will range from $45-80. They are slimmer than most pants but, in general, I find them more comfortable than jeans. Only caveats would be that you need to check the sizing as the...
Key question of entire threak = Will the new cuffs have working buttons?
You could probably have it adjusted and then use some seam sealer goop to re-seal the seam. Then again, if it is just the length of the arms I would just tuck them into the gauntlets of the gloves and call it good. Cheaper and warmer...
Foo - I'm in the Pacific NW (115" of pow in the last 7 days - don't hate boys!) and ride a few times a week all the way into late spring and place a season's pass on the same level as a regular haircut. Lots of good advice so far, but here are a few thoughts: - You did really well on the basics, but a performance base layer setup is mandatory as its role it to wick the sweat away so your skin stay's dry and "dry = warm." Cotton is a lousy wicking material and offers zip...

Funny, but I find a lot of the newer Isaia stuff sub-par to the older models. After a couple of years of experimentation,I found what works/what I favor and I'd say about 80% of my current closet is Isaia. Even though I picked up a couple of pieces in the newer Base S cut in the last year, it can't touch the older Stuart or Scott or even the first generation of S models in terms of the subtlety of the cut and the silhouette . The new shoulders seem more padded and not...
