MOK, it was some of your great moleskins and other various trousers posted in WAYWRN that lead me to my Crittendens, which I love by the way!
If I could find a pair closer to a wine or burgundy color, I'd be all over them. I just dont think I'm slim enough to pull off a bolder brighter color. My waist is such that a size 36 is just starting to be a tad loose, but with the dreaded love handles mixed into the equation, any pants with a long rise, would likely look aweful on me.
Somehow I don't think that the nicer Panta shade, ( or cut) would look flattering on me, unless I manage to carve off the last 15 pounds of blubber I'm still clinging on to.
The GD last 15 have been harder to drop than the first 140
And the same goes for wearing a nice casual white pair for summer.... Maybe next year.. I think it would be a extremely versatile wardrobe staple for casual wear.
