What kind of pants would you consider a staple of your wardrobe?

Trying to find a few pair of pants, chinos or trousers (are trousers ok to wear with a bit more casual wear or are they strictly for formal looks?) but don't know which color to get so I get the most out of them? I already have beige/khaki chinos and medium-gray chinos (though since they were cheap I don't think they'll look nice a long time).

PRL wool or cotton Preston pants. Flat front, unhemmed, made in Italy, retail for stupid money, able to be had for a song.

Does anyone know where I can find some olive green shoe polish? Not a cream, but an actual polish? I have been trying to find something via Google and have had no luck at all.

Thanks!

you probably found this already cuz it's cream/polish but olive is an unusual color. you may have to go w/ cream for the color then finish w/ a clear polish for the gloss. just thought that may help.. good luck.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say absolutely nowhere. Custom embroidery would have to be done prior to the shoe being made, due to the lining. I'm sure you can order custom ones, but you'll have to wait while they custom make 'em. Of course, those booths at the mall that do hats might be happy to butcher them for you.

The Fitzgerald is the more SF approved BB suit.

I believe there are some places in the garment district that can do monogramming but I'm not sure if they can handle slippers. I once wanted to do this myself but them gave up so let me know if you have success.

It's funny you say that because I tried on the Fitz, Regent, and the Milano. The Fitz jacket seemed to be much wider in the waist and hip than the Regent, and the trousers are similar. The Regent fit me much better OTR. I bought this one and a Milano.

That being said, I am considering returning this Regent for a Gray Flannel BB Fitz that I saw at Nordstrom.

All the others have too thing of lapels and are too short. if you can get a good neck and shoulders on the fitz the rest can be easily (and better, imo) tailored to your body. The other cuts you are stuck with a lot of poor stylistic and silhouette choices put in by the maker.

I actually already bought that. Applied a coat and the finish came out uneven. I was going to try a second coat tonight, but wast not that impressed with the cream. Had hoped that a polish would do a slightly better job on the shoes.

Thanks!!

Yes, you are correct that the Regent and Milano seem more "fashion forward" (especially the Milano). The problem that I have is that the shoulder on the Fitz is quite narrow for the 42L, but the body is VERY large in comparison. Sizing up is not really an option in order to get the shoulders to fit.

I will post photos of the two that I got in the meantime for some feedback.
