    Corbin may not be the best of pants, but I have a couple of dress pairs, all wool, and they are good everyday pants to me. www.sierratradingpost.com listed the other day a group of pants in many sizes and patterns. Â They appear to be the dreaded triple-pleat pants. Â STP doesn't have pictures up yet of the patterns, but I figured for $7.96 per pair, I'll take a chance and ordered 5 pairs to see how they are. Item number is 20613. Note: This is just informational, I don't want to get into the qualities of Corbin vs. other brands.

    I got a pair of their flat front pants for $19.99 at the same time I ordered my Bricken flat front flannel pants (which I really love, by the way). The fit was fairly good, but I found the quality of the wool average at best. I think that Banana Republic wool trousers are at least two notches higher on the quality scale than the ones I got (which claimed to be Super 100s wool). While $7.69 is a good deal, I agree with LA Guy that if you don't need them, it isn't a good deal because you won't wear them.

    Where did THOSE come from John? I've just seen the Gian Luca Napoli items. Where there a lot of different styles at one time?

    Feel free to provide other links to items on STP, I'm missing something.

    I am a bit surprised to find the Isaia there too. I am like this close to pulling the trigger on the DB, apprehensive only because I'm a 42 long and that thing is a 42 regular.
