    I'm debating a couple pairs of linen pants on yoox, figured I'd throw them up here for opinions. Definitely not for business wear, might as well get opinions from both sides of the house:
    David Mayer, 51/49 Linen/Cotton

    Gazzarini, 99% linen, really like the details on these

    There's also a River 100% linen from shopthefinest. Lavender herringbone[​IMG]. What do we know about River?

    This will be my second pair, after a light blue Varvatos pair I got from vch. Opinions?

    Nix on the first. The pseudo-denim look is very tacky.

    Another vote for the Gazzarrinis. The first pair make me think "maternity jeans" with their color and elastic waist.

    I have a pair of distressed cords from Gazzarrini that I'm very happy with, and definitely other examples of trousers from them have piqued my interest. When I posted about a related subject several weeks ago, others on the board concurred that their pants are their best product.

    I actually like the first pair, but my thought was yoga pants...
    I do think that they'd look better in a different color...maybe a green or brown.

    Oh, did I mention? I'm pregnant [​IMG] Hah...good points all. The Gazzarreni are conveniently the cheapest choice, so looks good. I'm going to have a full up wardrobe by the time I get out of this hellhole [​IMG]
