My search for a pair cords ended yesterday, as I just purchased a pair of Bernard Zins navy cords from the Nordstrom rack in Colma, CA. They actually had a pretty good selection there, including an assortment of colors from Faconnable. I purchased the cords for $43; they looked like they had been marked down a few times, and their original price looked to be around $135 or so. They seem to be pretty good quality, but I would still like to get anyone's opinion about Bernard Zins. How do they stack up compared to other makers such as Zegna? Who makes the best quality cords? Last week I saw a beautiful pair of Incotex cotton and cashmere cords, but at $600, they were just a little out of my price range. Additionally, at the rack, I saw a couple pairs of navy cotton trousers from Zegna, marked down to $39.97 They were originally $195, with the original tags still attached. They were both size 30's, which happen to be my size. They are definetely worth checking out.
