    They're not reading this.

    I think you've gotten plenty of input on both.

    Don't currently own any drop crotch pants but I want to get a pair. I think they work well when the drop isn't too large. For that reason, I was considering the following.

    If anyone has other suggestions on either drop crotch or cropped pants in the $350 and below range, I'm open to those as well.

    I tried to think of a way to write this post without being a dick, since you're legitimately trying to be helpful and this forum needs that sort of thing, but

    Do you want sweat pant material or trousers? The stiffness of the sweatpants would prob cause them to drape weirdly. Don't know, I've never owned siki im dropcrotch pants before.

    I wanted something lightweight for summer use and was really looking for 'sweat.pant material.'

    I don't own a single pair of proper trousers so that'll be a future purchase and likely non-drop crotch.

    if you're size 32/48, check yoox in a few days for some miharayasuhiro cotton sweatpants. I got two pairs of miharas last week- a wool pair and a cotton pair, and the cotton ones will be going back. they're made from a t-shirt material, which wasn't what I was looking for but should suit your needs really well. peace

    I have some gustavolins pants (check out suspensionpoint.ca) that might fit the bill as well

    Upon further review, I think the Ute blazer may be a little too similar to this OL blazer I already have as part of a suit:

    Also, someone convince me not to buy this:

    Yeah, I'm on board with that assessment. Flying Lotus or someone like that would do that jacket justice, but the odds of me actually wearing it enough to justify owning it are probably kind of low.

    On the other hand it's on MyHabit, and I'm ok with spending $5 in return shipping to try it on, so I'm going for it.

    Looks like they may have a full size run for anyone else out there in SF-land who wants a cool but impractical chambray jacket from Garbstore.
