Bills Khaki's Vintage Twills?

I just bought a couple of pairs of Bill Khaki's 5 pocket vintage twills that were on clearance.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these particular BK fabrics? If so is it passable for fall/winter wear. How is the fit? Did I do right by ordering my usual trouser size?

If anyone could give me some insight I'd be grateful!

Thank you in advance!

Are they used? If not, who is still selling Bill Khaki's?

Yes, those are what I was talking about. Was about to add the link.

Do you think they are any good? Both quality wise and for colder weather? I'm also considering some UK made five pockets offered by Cordings as well.
Vintage twills are maybe 7.6 ounce, which I'd wear down to the 50s or so. Below 50s, Original twills are 8.5 ounces so good for another 10 degree drop
...and they have moleskin + Bullards which rule during sub 40 degree weather. Flannel lined for anything below 25 degrees.

Always check their clearance page, that is where bargains reside, buy off season for the best value.
