    Although I guess if this happened with de bonne facture it might fit the bill...

    Old Town has something that's supposedly more slim fitting and available in moleskin, but on reflection it's probably not much slimmer than LeLab straight leg

    Had a look at arpenteur they're mostly only in navy wool this season (and sold out in my size).

    Old Town is a possibility... although I think old season Junya x Hervier is maybe more what I'm after, probably have to hunt down those.

    How to size Le Lab work jackets? I assume a 3 is close to a medium?

    You can get MTO navy moleskin pants from Epaulet, presumably in any of their cuts.

    I think they generally run pretty large. I have a moleskin version in size 2 with a p2p of 22".

    Can't stand when retailers disable "Open in New Tab" (or Command + click) on their websites. When I browse I want to scroll through overview pages and open new tabs for stuff that looks interesting—not click one thing, then have to navigate back to the overview and click on another.

    So annoying, what's the point?

    What type of dye is typically used when garments are 'overdyed' I'd like to dye a pair of pants, but i don't want to risk using conventional dye. I've noticed that a lot of the time the stitching would not dye. I'm trying to go from khaki to black or navy blue.

    Not sure if the major manufacturers do it this way, but you can overdye using the same stuff you'd regularly dye with. If the thread used is synthetic it won't take the standard dyes.

    It depends on the synthetic - generally thread will be polyester based which is essentially undyeable.

    Should I buy these MMM Side Zips for $400? Also, how's the quality on MMM boots compared to say SLP? I know I need a pair of Black Side Zips.

    Varied from pair to pair. I haven't handled that particular version, but even the shittiest pairs have held up for me.

    Im a 4 in the moleskin (and linen) work jackets, and am typically an XL/44/54. In the wool, I wear a 3.

    I would assume you´ll need a 2 for the moleskin.
