OK, but what about tan chinos?

at home? Sure. In public? No...why? You don’t seem clever enough to be a troll so I’ll just chalk it up to being somewhat clueless. You were under the impression a beige sweater was creepy, but you see nothing unusual about wearing sweatpants when other than exercising. In fact, if one reads your post accurately, you wear sweatpants to the exclusion of anything else.oh right, i forgot, this is the menswear section of the website, i bet you guys dont wear sweatpants, how snooty of you all , but i assure you my sweatpants are slim-fit and quite stylish.
There are many places you can get a decent rise these days. May cost a little more, but that's what most people on this forum wear. Rota (Michael Jondral typically has some good end of season deals on the more casual stuff), Natalino, Yeossal, Hertling, Spier and Mackay, Luxire, Drake's, traditional American clothiers (e.g. J. Press, O'Connell's, Andover Shop, Ben Silver), Cordings, Bill's Khakis (no clue if they are what they once were), Chad Prom, Informale (esp. if you like that sweatpants look), Ring Jacket, Pommella, Berg & Berg, and many, many more. Most of these are popular with people on this forum. You can also check forum sponsors like the Armoury, Cavour, and No Man Walks Alone for more options. I don't have experience with most of these options, but have heard mostly good things.I dont wear chinos so i dont have an opinion on them, i find pants and jeans these days have a ridiculously too low of a rise (why is that? dont guys need the room?) and i dont like to wear my pants below the waist, so i just wear sweatpants.
Many, many on that list are closer to $ 200.i checked out one of the sites you mentioned, informale, and yikes i wasnt expecting to see $400 pants, so how much annual income should one make in order to reasonably afford $400 pants and how many pairs would you have?
The linen drawstring on Informale are 290...AUD. That's 214 USD. A lot, but no where nearly as much as you said.i checked out one of the sites you mentioned, informale, and yikes i wasnt expecting to see $400 pants, so how much annual income should one make in order to reasonably afford $400 pants and how many pairs would you have?
ok, i will check out some of the other sites you listed, those prices you listed are much more reasonable...The linen drawstring on Informale are 290...AUD. That's 214 USD. A lot, but no where nearly as much as you said.
Spier and Mackay has plenty for under 100 and some for under 50.
The traditional American clothiers I mentioned have plenty in the 100s. O'Connell's has a lot in the lower 100s.
Natalino has plenty in the 100s. Esp. if you look at their sale.
Cavour has stuff in the 100s.
A number of these places' prices will also go down a lot on sale.
Sure, many of these places are expensive. But these also aren't pants that you have to re-buy every year or two. Many of these will hold up for a long time, especially if you get the right fabrics.
