no joak, my best fitting pair of summer pants are a pair of charcoal slim linen pants from H&M and were like $20. Slim, comfortable, decent construction, and look much higher quality than their source would indicate.
Solar - right idea, not quite there on the execution. +1 to socks don't work there. See MellowFellow for ideas. Also beige and black seems like a no no from the MC side of forum. Maybe with blue jeans instead? or with something more earth colors, hell even that vest with a maroon/burgundy pant and those black chunky shoes?
I feel like the bang-for-your-buck calculation on that Regis fit is very whimper-for-a-fortune
which I guess is cool with MMM where it's some postmodern fashion thing where you spend lots of money on banal attire to deconstruct the idea of fashion but I'm not sure on whom the joke is?
