A few years ago, I "found" that Allen Edmonds makes my size 15 shoes and boots. That led me to SF...
I completely stopped buying Cole Haans and any lesser quality products and built a significant collection of AE.
Bills represents a parallel experience, in that their pants are available in my size ! (36x36) and are better at every comparison (durability, consistency in fit, materials, features) to my previous collection (Eddie Bauer/Peter Millar/Levis). Those never seemed shabby but compared to Bills, I now find them a bit shabby. :)
Once you determine your correct size, the same Model and waist size in any other pant variation will fit the same.
M3 is the trim fit model. I am not skinny and trim in my head only - 6'4 235lbs. I fit the M2 pants in my regular waist size. In M3, I wear a +1 size, 37 waist, although I can squeeze into my regular waist size 36.
I suggest buying your real size in either M2 or M3, depending on your build. If you are truly slender, the M3.
It remains difficult to really see all items they have, because the website is a dated turkey that is not getting current attention.
There are still a few nice M4 items, that are hard to find on the site. Overdyed Navy are really a nice item and they still have many sizes. I bought 38 waist and have not tried them on even, figure I can easily shrink them as needed.
If they have an item in your size and it fits any gap in your closet...and you get your size right, at current discounts...you won't be disappointed. And if you were, these same items sell for more on eBay right now.
Last comments- to repeat this thread has shown that CS is bad- no emails or voicemails returned in ages. Calling in requires significant patience and you sit on hold, redial, sit on hold and redial again. May take them 2 weeks more or less to ship. This is not the old Bills, just a little disconnected warehouse of Pre PE firm product. (new ownership is a PE firm, so future plans are uncertain)
Sorry for my own redundancy in this thread. I figure folks read the first and last posts mainly...and am trying to bird dog / highlight the constantly changing better deals here.
Received just 3 of 7 items that showed to be in stock, so website / inventory remains disconnected unfortunately.
Still, I am pleased with 3 wool pants for south of $120, but their liquidation bargains are pretty much picked through unless you wear a size 33...
