I'm going to work for Bain Consulting and anticipate wearing the traditional consultant-wear: light blue shirts, light blue stripes, maybe some light blue checks
I'm thinking of getting 3 suit pants. At first I was thinking 3 different colors, but I think just mid-gray would look the best.
I have AE black and AE brown.
Mid Gray) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...-100s-mid-grayI think this is TOO light for a conservative work environment
Dark Gray) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...100s-dark-graySeems like I should just by all 3 of this color, what do you think? Could both brown and black shoes work here?
Charcoal) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...-100s-charcoalcould I wear brown or black?
Navy) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...uper-100s-navyprobably could only wear with brown shoes?
Remember when Incotex and Mabitex were all the rage here?
Howard Younts look pretty okay.
Sorry to thread-jack but I scored a pair of James Boss slacks for $99 and the Sharp are $129 for the anniversary sale, is this still too expensive for Boss and not recommended?
Rise on HY pants is to low, imo.
uh -oh, that's no good.
I need these for conservative work environment.
They are not crazy low (10.25') -- just low for my tastes as I have broad shoulders and like my rise to be around 12' to minimize my top heavy shape.
Epaulet Navy super 120's. Check them out. I have many pairs of trousers from them, good stuff.
I have broad shoulders too but am only 5'9" so figured a lower rise would make me look taller while a higher rise would make me look stub bier.
Slim Walt Trouser Super 120's Wool Medium Grey?
Looks like a worthy contender to Howard yount. Seems I need to figure out my rise preference. Just don't like looking like I'm carrying a load in my pants being only 5'9" with a high rise.
Depends on how you are setup and based on how broad your shoulders are. It's not like a 12' rise is crazy high. 5'9 is not tall, but it's not stumpy. I'd give Epaulet a shot.
The one, right? http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-844/Slim-Walt-Trouser-Super/Detail
Why don't you do a search instead of creating all these threads?
That's it -- navy is nice too -- I own many of the linens as well. Highly recommend,and if they don't fit ship em back.
You're going to have a tailor alter them (the pants are specifically designed to leave room for this) so don't fret if they don't fit perfectly out of the box.
Most of the classic colors navy and gray only seem to be available in 2 sizes. Some pants only have one size option.
Do you find that they are frequently out of stock of average sizes?
