Hi, I was wondering if flannel trousers were only suitable for colder weather or if they would be comfortable during the summer as well. I was just looking through BB trousers and they have several good looking flannels that are 50% off. After an additional 25% off they could be had for less than 100 bucks. In particular I am looking at these trousers. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...lor=Light-grey Or is better to go for summer gabardine trousers. The ones I...

Took the shoulders and top half of one model and combined it with the bottom half of another model. I honestly have no idea which models though. I'll find out when I pick it up though.

He also let me know when something I was describing wasn't going to look very good but definitely tried to help me...

Does anyone know if this Skagen mesh bands can be replaced with leather ones? Well, I have a Skagen just like the one pictured but with a brown face and brown strap and love the watch for my casual everyday watch. It's not something I wear with...
