Stitches, you are in dire need of an intervention.

indeed. it is a problem. however, after your comments on my khakis of last, i felt i needed some less crappy ones. still, i have a problem, no doubt.

I'm not trying to be malicious and I had a whole long winded diatribe I was going to write but just one question, what are you going to wear those with, particularly the navy pair?

if you dont want to post it, please to PM, i always appreciate your point of view. i dont take your criticisms as malicious, you have a lot to give in these areas. (inb4 ed has a lot give, mushroom pen0r joak)

i know there is a disdain here for navy trou, like the gray SC, but i wear navy trou. i like it with a brown SC, or a gray one, or sometimes just with a nice stripe or pattern shirt, sans jacket.

i would wear the navy pants with more casual shirts that i wouldnt otherwise wear with a SC. things like the large ginghams i posted in the MC casual thread. these are a more structured pant than the j crew khakis i have, i think they would lend a more dressy look to wearing a casual shirt, more work appropriate. and if i wanted to throw on a SC, i think these would be better suited for that.

the khaki colored, linen/cotton blend would be for the same shirts, but the less dressy look. just a better quality and slighter slimmer fitted pant. and as i mentioned, you recommended a cotton/linen blend for a shirt of mine, and i thought i would give that look a try. i imagine you are not a fran of the back flap pockets.

does that make sense, or am i talking crazy talk?

no it doesn't make sense. both those pants are really, really casual. I hope you got them cheap tho - M&C quality is pretty miss from what I'v seen.

also if that's the aesthetic you're going for -- the casual workwear vibe -- you should look at RRL. much, much nicer pieces. or even LVC.

so i saw the prices you paid (from spoo's). not that bad honestly. i guess they're a good introduction to that aesthetic.

also wasn't zegna making david chu's? or incotex? i remember having a pair that were identical to some incotex i had.

the khakis, are indeed very casual. maybe im wrong about the navy chinos, but they are a rather "firm," if thats the right word, weave. they seem to keep their shape, and not end up all loosey goosey, which i translate into more dressy than casual, maybe im wrong about that.

i dont generally look for that casual aesthetic on most days, but when i wasnt super pleased with the result when i did, and i thought this would be a possible solution to that. this was more of a thought out purchase, than just, ooooh pants, must to kop.

i looked at RRL when i was in the RL store this summer. fantastic stuff, but far more than what i am looking to pay for my casual wear. if you know a place to get RRL on the cheap, please lmk. not jeans tho, im not a jawns guy.
