    Thanks that looks promising, but you mean 195 right? Is the quality is pretty decent for the money? I was hoping to find some Incotex or Canali on sale below $200.

    I meant the classic $175 ones here. They fit well on me so I've gotten all my pants from HY. I prefer that to having pants from different brands/cuts and not knowing how something will fit before I buy it.

    I have browsed the whole Epaulet trouser section. The only one in the mid-grey are the cargo pants. I could do away with the side pockets and give them the look of a standard pant, but the fabric is medium weight. Wish they had a mid-grey trouser with a heavier fabric used in their other pants.

    I am considering a pair of Aldens tan chukkas. I'm just wondering what seasons it's generally acceptable to wear them.

    One might wear them in spring, summer, fall or winter.







    Yes, seriously. In spring/summer, linen pants or khakis. Fall/Winter, chinos, jeans or wool flannel trousers. Or tweed. Or any other somewhat textured wool. While I tend to go darker during the colder months, I still break out the lighter suede on a regular basis.

    Hi going to a reasonably smart engagement party. I have a nice dark blue corduroy jacket. Is this ok and what should it go with - shirt, trousers, shoes.


    THANK YOU!

    HY quality is excellent for the money.

    You're asking a little much here. We don't even know what's in your wardrobe. I suggest posting pics of what you were thinking of wearing which will enable people to give you informed advice.

    yeah, tell us what you have. it's good that you know that you want to wear the jacket, you can build the rest of your stuff base on that. But we really don't know what you have to make it work.

    Yeah a little on the dark side, these or HY might be what it comes to down if I can't find anything else.

    Incotex flannel on sale now.

    The "moss" looks like it could be what you're looking for.
