Best part for me was getting to check out the mainline fatigues from this season. They had them in black duck canvas (didn't even know this was an option) and the fit is fantastic on them. Slim compared to the Workadays but not too slim and after being skeptical about the new hidden pocket I'm now quite a fan actually. Ended up buying them even though I'm not sure I like black pants. I've never had a pair, not really sure how to wear them, and I don't own any black shoes. They seem to work well with chambray which is good since I have a ton of that, wearing them today with FW12 chambray shirt and some brown Russell chukkas....yep, breaking that cardinal rule of brown shoes with black pants. I actually like brown and black together though so FTW.
Anyway, these are so good I already have a PM into Gary to see if he has my size left in the olive reversed sateen...thinking those would make a nice Xmas gift to me from my family (they've already started asking me what I want...it's only September!).
