post #18331 of 30954

Any suggestions on where a broke student could find some grey flannel pants? BB at retail is out of my price range. The ones I've seen on ebay aren't my size (32x33/34).

They are Carminia cordovan and have been worn at least 10-15 times....

 

The difference is quite noticeable in the photos, but of course you have focused the images specifically on the shoes.  I think it would probably be noticeable in person -- certainly so to SF-types; not as much to casual passers-by.  Whether this bothers you is a completely different question.

Flannel pants are really hard to find at a low(ish) price. Finding your size might be even harder, unless you find them with an unfinished hem. I have been looking for flannel pants for a while, with little luck unless I want to pay around $200 which is admittedly not feasible right now. Keep looking on the Bay, as I think that's your best bet.

as a follow up to my earlier question, is there an sf approved linen retailer (preferrably brick and mortar in chicago , or online)?  shopping for an outfit for a wedding in february in the caribbean.

I have several pairs of flat front everyday type trousers, a couple pairs that I recently purchased I had done with cuff. When they get home from the cleaners they have finished them with a fold along the seat as opposed to along a crease line that a pleated pant would have. I looked at this cuff all day and it is so sloppy it just pissed me off. Any ideas? Should I ask my dry cleaners to finish/fold differently? Thanks in advance, RCC.

Check to see if Howard Yount has anything left.

hate to say it, but you should probably find a new dry cleaner.

i have thankfully never had that happen to me, but i have seen it happen to my brother, who uses a different dry cleaned than i do. you can bring them the pants, and remind them every time to crease them like dress pants, not casual pants, and that you want a crease going down the front of the leg. they will probably do it right if you tell them every time, but a dry cleaner that cant figure that out on its own is suspect in my opinion.

in better news, its highly unlikely that the pants are ruined, just in need of a new press.

good luck. smile.gif

Hello, I just want to post this here too, in case anyone else is reading. I make a thread in Men's Clothing looking for any recommended suit brand with 8-10" drop (big chest but narrow waist), I can spend $1000 a suit maybe. Possibly this called European Cut, I hear? Any one able to help? Thank you.

I believe "European cut" refers to overseas makers typically have a slimmer, more fitted silhouette compared to a traditional, boxier "American cut".  At that price point, you may want to look into MTM.  Caruso has a few offerings with drop 8 iirc.  If you are content with skinnier lapels, BB Fitzgerald or Regent suits might fit the bill.

Simply tell them that you prefer a crease. Shouldn't be a problem. What they did is not necessarily make a 'wrong' choice, as many people do prefer casual trou uncreased.

Hi all,

 

Could you please tell me where I could buy some suit/jacket/trousers fabrics online? EU websites preferred for customs reasons.

 

Many thanks for your help as I have had quite a hard time to find anything at all.

I'm looking for a pair of winter boots that I can wear around campus through some light rain and snow.  I've been browsing SF and have been falling in love with wingtip boots, especially the AE Daltons.  I don't have $300+ to drop on a pair of boots right now, though.  What are some alternative choices for wingtip boots that I can wear in mild winter weather around campus that wont run me past $200? 

 

Thanks guys!
