I think Cox's pre-reqs might be overly strict...

For those with 36 waists, Dapper Classics has a number of excellent trousers 80-100 off retail.

This.

 

Granted, Bruce Wayne has little on me. But  i don't agree with Cox here, i have seen some more rotund chaps who pulled off the polo neck quite well. I treat the turtleneck like a shirt, essentially an undergarment, enveloped in a suit/OJ or another outerlayer. As long as it is not a skin-tight number, it is fine IMO.

I have one and it just feels uncomfortable. Thinking of adding another in a fabric that does not irritate.

Looking hard for moleskin chinos, but nowhere to be found in BM locations . Ended up getting a thick cotton twill BB chino in milano fit. BB said they haven't had moleskin trousers for about 5 or so years.

Look at these pantaloons. Do you call these dark or mid-gray?

 

post #31326 of 37429

Butch, these would definitely be dark in my color spectrum, but I imagine the general consensus (in addition to most grey swatches I've seen) will come back mid.

Dark... Mid... The one thing I Don't call them is 'pantaloons'...

Thinking out loud from the bar again... Let's go Blue Jays!!

SB, I'd say mid grey. It's a continuum, though.
post #31329 of 37429

I would call them mid-gray, too, perhaps on the darker end. EG's take, however, is what I suspected would be the consensus.

Dark mid-gray. Definitely not dark gray or charcoal
post #31331 of 37429
Dark side of mid-gray, but definitely mid-gray.
post #31332 of 37429

I agree with clags...in the gray spectrum they are mid-gray but on the darker side of the middle. They are definitely not a true dark gray like charcoal.

 

75% mid-gray, 25% dark gray.

So precise!

post #31334 of 37429
We all set then, with the pants color?

Does this guy fit your criteria?  http://www.scottssweaters.com/images/7/700/700-025/700-025ped2.jpg

I can't stand the rubbing of the fabric against my neck, so I avoid them.

 

If you have an heroic physique, they can look great.
