    indeed, but its still a solid hour plus each way for me. not really very realistic for me. :(

    ---

    thanks for all the answers, guys. i have 2 pairs of their pants, summer wool and khakis, and they are hella slim in the thighs and harrow at the opening. hence my inquiry. the legs and thighs in MFs pic look waaaay to slim for me, his SP suit looks 100 times nicer imo.

    i could never look good in pants that slim.

    So Suit Supply Havana fits me only marginally worse than MTM. Happy days.

    I like higher buttoning points though, so it doesnt bug me too much.

    Can someone recommend me some good dress pants? My only pants (that doesnt belong to a suit) ripped again and see wear and tear in the fly flap.

    Uh...tailors can add width to your shoulders?!
    So I can take all my 38R jackets and have the shoulders extended AND have the jacket lengthened???

    Difficult to see on those dark pics, but looks a bit too much like a part of a suit. Also, navy odd trousers are not so versatile according to SF group think.
    Don't know about that brand, but I do know that STF usually only carries quality stuff.

    Rudals / The Noodles, no sense rehashing the navy odd trouser debate. There are a few threads on it already. That said, I think even most who are okay with navy trousers would agree that a medium grey trouser is more useful to have as your sole pair of odd trousers.

    so, you recognize that it looks worse than what you get MTM, and you are still interested? is it that much cheaper?

    imo, even if its a lot cheaper, i would stick with what you know work better.

    bu go ahead and get nerdy and explain why in you value quantum mechanics, its ok.


    yes. what are you going to do with shiny navy worsted wool pants? check out the rota trousers on NMWA.
