We have some. Like these:

How do we get replacement buttons for the pants? I managed to have one pop off.

What would people advise as a good pair of fall/winter pants in Washington, DC? Mild winters, usually with averages around 40 F (lows slightly below freezing). I'm looking at the navy VBC 120 flannels or the navy twill. The twill appears to be a heavier pant but I'm wondering whether it would actually be warmer than the flannels?

Mid-grey flannel (e.g. VBC 100s) is plenty warm for temperatures in the 30F, plus you can pair it with just about anything.

Flannels. The texture alone makes it worth it. Wearing flannel is like my favorite part of winter.

Granted, I think the VBC ones are a bit thinner than the lambswool ones, but even so... Flannel. Just do it.

BTW, mid grey is a much more versatile color than navy, and I'd strongly recommend that for your first several pair.

How are 100% cotton socks? How do they hold up vs something blended (not too much)?

The classic lambswool flannels have served me well this season.

No way--mid grey goes with everything. Navy doesn't. First off, lots of odd jackets are blue--navy trousers aren't going to work there unless the jacket is very light. Second off, navy can be too dark and causes too much contrast with what's up top. They are similar to charcoal in that respect.

I'm not saying they aren't good to have in the rotation for some things--I'm just saying they are less versatile. Mid grey goes with literally almost everything, and looks good while doing it. Navy pairs well with much fewer things. If starting out then, it makes much more sense to get several pairs of mid grey before moving into other colors.

mid grey with navy jacket= security guard.

navy goes well with gray, any number of tans, orange, yellow, etc.

navy trou can be used in all situations that jeans would be, hence, extremely versatile.

Totally disagree. Poor fitting, shitty grey pants with poor fitting, shitty blue coat? Definitely. But it's not hard to make that look not be security-guard-esque.

Sure it does. But how many grey, orange, or yellow SCs do you have? Grey SCs are very hard to do without it looking like an orphan suit jacket. Really, you've got the classic tweed black/white herringbone, grey donegal, and that's it. Much more advanced stuff, and not something I would recommend to a newbie.

Navy does work with brown jackets, but in almost all cases, mid-grey trousers would have looked better--navy will provide too much contrast to all but the darkest of browns.

Again, I'm not saying navy doesn't work. I'm just saying it's not as versatile.

I'm also going to chime in that mid grey are versatile, and navy should be your third or fourth.

Agree with everything Aravenel said.

while obviously the quality and fit is superior, the general look remains. I think the light gray works better in the situation.

Its not all about SCs. I wear these pants with just a sweater. I have a flannel lanvin blazer (in mid grey no less) that goes excellent with these pants.

Regardless of my argument here, I just picked up a few pairs of the flannel, including mid grey (already have navy).

That said, I still prefer navy.

Hello,

I'm going to order some HY trousers and need some help with sizing. My waist is 29" at the belly and 32" at hips (upper) — should I purchase 30 size in both Italian and US cut trousers or need to size up or down?
