    I'm looking for a pair of somewhat affordable slim chinos. size 36x30 or 36x32. preferably 7-8" hem width, and a low rise. Looking to spend under $70.

    Suggestions please! I've done a load of searching, no luck.

    Would Rugby chinos be what i'm looking for?


    Rugby, J. Crew Bowery, or Brooks Brothers Milano. I think they might be slightly over $70, but sales are about.

    I personally love the feel of the material of the Vintage Khakis from Gap. They're very soft and comfortable to wear. Plus they're only around $50.

    How good a deal is the current sale at Brooks Brothers for suits?

    Specifically a Regent or Fitzgerald 1818 or Milano Saxxon which are 40 - 50% off like these over here

    I want to buy a suit and will pull the trigger if you guys feel this is good value or look elsewhere if you don't. Or, if it's really good value, I might buy two suits. I've been spending a lot of time reading on the forum, but want to act quickly before they run out of the good stuff

    Thanks!

    Damn, that is a good deal. I'm going to kick myself if I find out I missed out 38R's. There are none left! Still plenty of 36S, 36R, 38S...

    long time lurker, 1st time poster here.

    When looking for suits/blazers offered in the B&S section (or Ebay), how much room do I--or my tailor--have to work with, specifically across the shoulders?

    I'm a slender guy & measure 18.75 from shoulder-to-shoulder on all 3 of my Canali suits. Would a skilled tailor be able to let out fabric in the back of a jacket that's 18.0 or 18.25? Or is that really too much of an adjustment adversely affecting the position of the armholes?

    Thanks for any tips or info [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info. There should be some at the store - I hope! Otherwise I'll be kicking myself too :)

    Going to check out the BB sale tomorrow and wanted to know which store has the better selection: State St or Newbury St? This is in Boston, btw.

    RRL?
    I don't think so. I'll have to stop by on the way home tomorrow and see if they're still there.
    I rarely wear glasses but need a new pair. Thoughts on these?

    They fit my face well, especially the bridge. (It's not to thick) I like the dark tortoise color too. Only problem is the obnoxious Polo horse. Any ideas on how I could disguise the log? I don't think the penny scratch-off method would work, as it's a recessed area that has been filled. (Not painted on)

    I haven't needed to wear glasses for near-sightedness for over 10 years now since the Lasik procedure but if I did, the frames would be tortoise. I am lusting for a pair of tortoise Wayfarers and I don't care if they say RayBan on the lens or not. Get the Ralphs and don't worry about the logo. Probably end up as a good conversation starter.

    Yes.

    Seriously, dark green is a versatile color. White shirt, and you can wear one with anything.

    Are these wearable to an office enviornment (with appropriate color linen/seersucker trousers) in the American south? The two tone looks a bit unbusinesslike despite the seasonal suitability. Are these only for non-professional wear?

    Shoulder measurement is the most important. That's too big a difference, IMHO.
