    Hi All,

    I've been a lurker here for quiet some time and have learned a lot. I finally registered and need some advice. This spring I have cleaned my closet out completely. I sold all of my overpriced, horrible fitting, off the rack designer pants, shirts, and shoes. I'm basically starting from scratch. I'm local to Manhattan so accessibility to forum favorites shouldn't be a problem.

    Here is a list I have so far. I need the basics now and will move into suits next.

    Crockett and Jones
    2 Loafers, 1 suede, 1 brown leather.
    2 belts, same colors.

    I have 8 pairs of bespoke Hamilton's that I got from Barney's. I like Hamilton, but the quality could be a bit better. I am willing to try out some local shirt makers and have good heard good things about Geneva. Are there any other bespoke shirt makers in NYC that I should be looking at?

    This is what I need help with most. I have a few pairs of MTM Incotex which I love. The fit is great, the quality is great, etc. I may revisit Incotex for a more formal pant. Are there any other recommendations here outside of Incotex?

    In addition to 2 pairs of formal pants, I plan on getting 2 pairs of Zegna "jean" like material pants for more casual days. They still have the metal buttons, etc just like jeans but are alot more comfortable and fit so much better.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
