Anyone selling Well, they're great -- definitely a slim fit that's more appropriate for an office environment IMO. I'm going for the 12oz next fall if they're stocked. As for sizing, I would say go for the smaller of the two. But why not just order both and return the one that doesn't fit?

If you can get to a Muji, their boxer briefs are pretty great for $9.50 or so. Lo-pro waistband, button fly, soft n stretchy.
Not really an observation, but a suggestion: Took my wife to Jean Shop yesterday for new denim, and she wound up getting the men's Rocker, in size 27. They fit her perfectly and another lady was admiring them -- but when my wife told her they were men's, she made sort of an "ewww" face. I think a lot of women would go for raw denim if they'd try on the small men's sizes. A slim straight cut like the men's Rocker is pretty hard to find for women -- all the cuts are either...

You would have gnashed your teeth every time you saw the loose stitching and dye overrun. I'm of the opinion that when it comes to things you WANT rather than NEED, that you shouldn't compromise -- even if it means you have to save another $300.

Meet Mr. Troll. The overly precise phrasing and the apparently well-reasoned argument that on second read is clearly sophistry is a dead giveaway. I love trolls because the challenge is figuring out what their motivation is -- this guy seems to really dislike A-E for some reason. The trolls who just stir up shit for no reason are the really interesting ones. Now sock puppets -- that is some next-level shit.
Funny how Flying Lotus' head-to-to EG fit wins raves but Timpoblete's doesn't. EG is weird in a good way. I've been trying to explain to my wife why I like it so much -- it's like an alternate reality version of really boring clothes. That's the only way I can articulate it. Of course that means some pieces can come off as, well, boring. Someone described it as not working on skinny guys -- but I think it's works for everyone, you just have to play around with...
Best: Muji, Brooks Brothers MiUSA OCBDs, Levi's denim, Red Wing. Worst: JCrew at full retail. I don't think designer/fashion brands should be part of the discussion. You're not paying for the qualities that go into "bang for the buck," but rather for style, which isn't really quantifiable in $$.
