Styegal: For brands LA Guy had great advice- but remember he's a thin guy and thus favors flat fronts. I heartily disagree with Feltva. I'm not fat, but could lose 15-20 lbs (I'm 235 now, was 220 when I graduated college), and I look MUCH BETTER in pleats. JB Britches are OK, but Zanella or Joseph Abboud or Bernard Zins at Nordstrom for wool are better. Everyone's heard me rant about BR's questionable quality before, so I'll save my breath. For khakis (cotton) try Bill's, many finer men's specialty stores carry them. www.billskhakis.com
