I just snagged a pair of Bill's Khakis in the Cramerton cloth (heavyweight) from MyHabit for $69: http://www.myhabit.com/#page=d&dept=men&sale=A3BZ9EORDBGSVE&asin=B008OXCJI6&cAsin=B008OXCK1M&ref=qd_b_img_d_5

Thoughts on this purchase?  I'm not sure whether this is the M1, M2, or M3 fit.  Also, I'm concerned that these might be too heavy for year-round wear in Texas.  Would my money be better spent on a couple pair of Dockers or something else?

Those are M3. M1 is exceptionally baggy, and M2 is casually loose.

I think you did great for the money, but in Cramerton they will not be year-round pants.

You must be joking, man.
And this is the type of response I get for asking a reasonable question!

I like darts on my MTM and custom shirts. They look cool. lol

Obviously a custom shirt, I don't know for sure the difference between MTM and bespoke shirts, you don't need the darts to make a shirt slimmer and taper more. It is more of a look.

Why do so many of you prefer wearing wool trousers over cotton chinos in a business casual setting?

 

Seasonality, texture and variety. I have some flannel and wool for fall/winter/spring, and linen and linen/cotton blends for spring/summer/fall. I am really not a big fan of chinos

+100. Sloppy as heck (but, unfortunately, has a "cool" connotation these days).

It's difficult to find chinos that fit well and will look decent after a few months.

What sucks is that I probably have about 12 or so cotton chinos and I'm not sure what do with them if I start replacing my wardrobe with wool pants.

I've come to the same realization over the years. With the amount of money I have spent on buying and replacing chinos, I would have spent less on good quality wool pants. Of course, wool pants are a little dressier than chinos (I also work in technology and sportcoats do look out of place in environment where even chinos are considered "dressed up").

Here is an up close pic of the fabric in bright lighting, so that you can you can see the weave. It really looks darker, and the weave is barely noticeable and smooth:



The buttons are not that special, but they are solid black, and i don't care for them on an odd jacket:



As mentioned earlier, 3 roll 2, black jacket, side vents, besom flap pockets. Any suggestions on buttons? Or possibly a good place to buy jacket buttons online?

I'd go with brown buttons instead. They will take it up a notch while still maintaining minimal design.

I got some natural horn buttons from bennosbuttons.com.

Who makes a good pair of chinos? I would prefer to not pay too much over $100 per pair.
post #17218 of 33197

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Any guidance on what color tie / suit would go with this shirt? 

 

http://www.amazon.com/Barba-Napoli-Lavender-Purple-Shirt/dp/B003ZWVJUU

 

It's a little darker and less versatile than I expected when I purchased.  Not sure if it can safely be worn with a business suit.  Thanks!
