I'm thinking of having my tailor put in a zip... which seems like such a retro-grade step. Still, the fabric is nice enough.


I haven't had that problem with my Pantas, but just a warning - if you put in a zipper, you'll get a crotch tent.

I honestly believe you need to try out a more subdued look, and first work towards refining the fit of your clothes. ... ... not necessarily someone whose style I admire. Bold outfits coupled with a sub-par fit would lead me to such a conclusion.

As I've said in the past, I really admire your enthusiasm for our common hobby, and the 'lifestyle shots' (I mean that in a good way) are enjoyable.

this, more or less.

First of all, great looking outfit. It looks like a lot of care putting it together went into it.

A small question. Is there a name for this style of shoe? The cap toe with the u-throat?

Single back pocket aside, there is nothing 'interesting' per se about Panta pants. Horn buttons, button fly, 3 way fastening, et al are all easily available at any good departmental store. But please don't take that as a Panta slam. Just stating facts, nothing more nothing less. They are nicely made.

Thanks. It's a Japanese brand someone recommended to me before my visit there last year. Unfortunately the tag came off recently (not indicative of the scarf's quality). The brand is a two word male name. I believe initials "T" and "M" or "H"?. Relatively popular in Japan I assume, as I saw their men's store in both Osaka and Tokyo. But don't recall exactly who it is.

For the money (i.e. in the $200 range), what I think sets Panta apart are the materials used and the quality of construction. It is not just that Panta uses horn buttons, but that the buttons are pretty fantastic. It is not just that they are nicely made, but the detailing is steps above other pants in that price range.

Your quote is similar to saying, four doors, sunroof, engine, et al are easily available at any car lot, there is nothing interesting per se about your BMW.

what is wrong with jobber fabric? these are not seconds. what do you call the stuff at tiptop?
Hart marx dumped over 400,000 yards
Ed Picked the good stuff Lora Piana, Barbaris, etc
If he had to buy regular goods, he would have to add at least $50 to the cost of the pant.

Woe
you should try one of the two tailors I keep posting about in Phila. better quality then Astor and black.

Overcoat: there is a store on chestnut and 13th that might have a really interesting milatary overcoat that could compliment your look and keep you warm!
maybe you bought your thermals there!

Really? I've gotta disagree. I'll admit I'm probably small time compared to most of the people here but to me that along with the way it fits me are the main selling points of Panta.

Granted, I'm not looking for Super 1,000,000+ fabric; I'm looking for pants I can wear to work on a regular basis.

I know what that can do to you. Guys look, I've looked over my first post in this thread and I can see how it might be misunderstood as a slam on Panta. It isn't. He produces a competent pant at a price which is within reach of many here. I was just responding to TH's post on his fabrics being difficult to find elsewhere - yes, they are difficult to find because they are jobber fabrics and thus (understandably) scarce.

I didnt think astor black made anything as nice as that sc. I like it a lot.

Back on topic, that's a great look for the OP, but am I the only one on SF who doesn't like antiquing?
