APC Original Standards, sz. 34 (actual waist 36.5", inseam 34.25") Still in great shape, fades juuuust starting to come in....
SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! I've got three pairs of Mabitex trousers purchased from Daffy's around October-November last year. I had them hemmed and wore each pair a few times, but I quickly realized that they were a bit too big for me, so they've been in my closet since. These are slightly larger than the Mabitexes on Daffy's racks at the moment — for reference, I wear a 52 in the Mabis of last year but a 54 in the current cut. Still have the trademark flat front...

I'm not huge but not trim either, and I love how my TaT stuff makes me look.
*Subscribe* I've had good luck with the few Shipley & Halmos pieces I've tried on, but I'm not sure the quality's the same.
I seem to remember reading recently that WB has run a buy-one-get-one-free sale. (I'm referring to something separate from the standard buy-one-we'll-donate-one-free, though maybe the post I was reading was confused...). Anyone remember this sale happening, and have a prediction when it'll return?

Belt does NOT have to match, there's a lot of people under the impression that your belt must match your shoes. When I worked in retail, people would spend hours matching every belt with their shoes until they found the right shade, or more than likely didn't and then left the...
