If you want them now and don't mind paying more:

Chipp (as @cyclohexane mentioned)
Brooks Brothers
Paul Stuart
Shibumi
Skoaktiebolaget

If you don't mind waiting a bit, eBay has fantastic options for really cheap. Try searching for Brooks Brothers or Paul Stuart. You can also look for Albert Thurston (or just "Thurston"). Great quality stuff that usually goes for $15-30 apiece.

If you're of small stature like me, Brooks Brothers might not be the best option.  I have a pair of suspenders from them and they're adjusted down to almost the minimum size; they'd probably work for a NBA center.

 

Haven't gotten around to looking into whether they're even worth trying to get altered.

Thanks for all the great tips on suspenders guys!

Okay guys, the first item is complete. I still need to do videos and such, but you can see all of the photos - and I'll be happy to answer any questions. 

 

The other two items are cotton-linen and all cotton, so if you want to pick up a dress pant from this EFF round, then these 8 options are what we have. Some notes from me: 

 

1) Air Force blue is really excellent and the most staple-ish of all of them. It's grey with a slight blue cast, and can be worn and matched just like a grey pant

2) Midnight Madness is freaking rad and just has 3 units left

3) Feldmaus is a very subtle tan shade. Really wearable and nice way to do a brown pant that's easy to match

4) Grey Phantom Check is a very cool and understated pattern. I usually do big plaids for these promos, but they're not all that popular. I thought that this was strong - it's small scale and doesn't have a lot of contrast. Nice way to do a checked pant if your new to it, and it would bring some serious pain the Gable. 

5) I encourage all of you to consider the WOOL SHORT - especially in the Vintage Tropicals, the Pewter Cross Check, or the Broken Railroad Stripe. It will change your life.

Ok air force blue in Taylor kopped. Fingers crossed...
post #54262 of 59840
I like EFFs because they usually bring something very off-beat to the table. That said, this range of wools is astounding. You could really pick any of them and wear them over and over again. True staples.

Thanks, Mike!

The 'tropical' in the vintage tropical air force blue is describing the weight or the color?
I assume color because of the EFF 4S but just wanted to confirm
post #54264 of 59840

@Epaulet is the pewter color a pure light grey? are there other shades of something else in there like a slight tan? My eyes may be deceiving me.

How much extra are the shorts?

@OdusBK "Tropical" is the weight, but I'd call this a 4-season wool. It's a bit lighter, but more or less the typical weight of a dress pant for a suit. Our basic Super 120s pants that we carried as a year-round staple were officially "Tropical" wools. 

 

These will be great for most of the year outside of the winter. But you'll want some tweeds and flannels from us for then anyway :-)

@dalevy No, you're seeing it right - it's a light grey with the smallest hint of tan in there. Really nice shade, but will make up as a light grey trouser essentially.

@gumercindo they're the same price as the pants. Only the Taylor and Gable have an upcharge for the additional pleat construction and sewing.

Thanks. Remind me - if I'm a 33 in rivet chinos (old style), am I a 32 or 33 in walts?

For me it would be the same across.
