Any input on the pants?

I would second the idea of BB Milano. They also have a few pairs with some stretch (Lycra) in them that should hold their shape very well. Theory also does some cotton/stretch pants but they'll be more expensive and personally I've always found the fit a little weird.

As to the shirts, your measurements mirror mine almost exactly and I just ordered some of the CT tailored fit shirts after trying them in the NY store. So far they seem to be one of the better OTR fits for me, in addition to RLBL and some of Barney's house brand stuff.

Plenty of OTR shirts will fit you. I have pretty much the same measurements as you (waist is one inch smaller) and Thomas Pink slim fits, fit fine (among many other brands).  Buy them on deal and they are a good buy

 

Plus, you can get button down shirts tailored for ten bucks a crack. I've done both and the MT stuff looks maybe 1% better unless its being done by a high end tailor or brand, which is probably note the case here.

This woud be by recommendation. Btw, I wash and wear mine, ironing isn't needed.

Ah, never heard of Thomas Pink before. What other brands do you have in mind for shirts? I'm in a rapid process of trimming down. Hopefully I'll hit 32" waist in a month.

 

Also, thanks for the replies everyone. Seems like a lot of people are suggesting the Milano Chinos from BB. I'm not sure how dressy they are, but I'll definitely go take a look when I pick up my shirts later this week.

 

As a side note, my office dress code is business casual, just shirt and tie.

The Milano chinos sound fine. Personally, I'd look to swap the tie for a sport coat; a tie without a jacket always looked like what guys wore to homecoming in high school. It looks a lot better to do a jacket sans tie than a tie sans jacket (unless the tie is being worn casually as an accessory).

There is no such thing as none-iron. Every pair of trousers will need its crease refreshing - unless you descend to the depths of the sewn in/glued type associated with work clothes.

You can always have the pants tailored.

Brooks Brothers Milano pants.  Their non-advantage chinos are the shit (IMHO, they also fit me perfectly OTR at 34x34) and they also make the style in wool pants.  I have a lot of slim trousers (i.e., Incotex, Mabitex, Howard Yount, BR) and they are by far my favorite other than Howard Yount.

It's funny isn't it, they brand it as non-iron but when you walk around with it it still wrinkles or creases.

Non-iron, at this point, seems to imply that it simply wrinkles less than other shirts.  I still iron them all before I wear them.

I definitely agree with some when it comes to non-iron pants, shirts, etc. there is still some degree of creasing.

True, they do wash much better though.

With BB, you've got to go with extra slim in order to get a fit similar to RLBL or TPSF. Even the extra slim tend to be a bit bigger around the waist than I like. Recently ordered some CT tailored fit, will report on those when they arrive.

Very true.

 

Please do report back. 

 

What are your thoughts on modern tailor? Thinking of giving it another go with them.
