    Right now, my only casual pants other than my RRDS are a pair of thrift store corduroys, kind of a basic brown color. Baggy, very wide wale, very casual, comfortable, and good for skating.

    I have a pair of cargo pants but they are seriously shit and they're already in the "donation" bag.

    My next casual pants purchase will be a pair of nice black straight leg jeans, probably Nudies because I know what size to get now. I bought my RRDS as 30s and they're way too baggy, to the point that I washed them today just to try to shrink them, so I think 28 will be the way to go for Slim/Super-Slim Nudies.

    Wool flannel pants in interesting textures/ patterns, or corduroys. I never did find khakis that fitted me well.

    I have an appreciation for all pants as they are my favorite pieces of clothing. Though I love denim, I love my washed cotton pants more and I have a place in my heart for wool trousers as well.

    I'm fond of flat front wool trousers or light cords, when I'm not in jeans, a suit, or exercise wear.

    I've seen some nice ones from Zara that are slim cut and about $80. otherwise sale time is the best time.

    Picked this up a couple of days ago. It's charcoal and made of wool. It's got cargo pockets. It's BR. I don't know what I liked about it but it was cheap ($12) so I got it.
    Any thoughts on what to wear it with? I figured it would be nice once it cools down.

    hmm, chinos for me, ones that are slimmer than the traditional fit.
