    Unless you're finding them in like the $30 range, I'd stick with Incotex. Mabitex are thin and overly vanishing and you might inadvertently moon someone bending over to pick up your groceries.

    As of now there are 3 cuts: Detroit, Torrence, Berlin.
    Current season seems to have some that are cotton with elastane / and some that are 100% cotton. I find the stretchy ones to be thinner and tend to look like leggings (depends on sizing I guess).
    Detroit is very skinny, low rise. I'm a 29, fairly average, but not skinny (more of a 46 everywhere with smaller waist). Could fit into sz 29 stretchy, and basically everything looked like leggings. Main problem was the knee, which was just skin tight. Sz 30 was a bit better but I tried it on at a difference place with the thicker cotton.
    Torrence is still skinny, medium-long rise (I'm not sure exactly how long). Still skinny in the knee, probably around same as detroit there.
    Berlin is more slim straight (rickowens website says its relaxed fit lol). I've gotten measurements on these in sz 30, and they are by no means relaxed, but much more slim straight (waist 16.5", hem 7"). I think all drkshdw waist run a bit large this season, or maybe they're just supposed to sit low on hips.

    Best thing to do is to try them on, or buy from a place with returns. Measurements help too ofc.

    I was actually suggesting Incotex/Mabitex to @ceoceo as an alternative to Uniqlo linen pants.

    I have a pair of Incotex that's held up pretty well, had a pair of Mabitex but didn't keep due to sizing issues so I guess I dodged a bullet there. Didn't know there was such a difference in quality.

    Whoops, my post was meant for jet. I just left the page open when his post was still the most recent and did some stuff around the house before getting around to posting it. My fault!

    Anyhoo, thanks for the suggestion. They look decent especially for what the cost (at discount)

    @ceoceo - I picked up a couple of pairs of Mauro Grifoni summer pants from Flannels. Not worth full retail, but nice quality and cut. I think The Corner also stocks his stuff.

    I went nuts on testing CDG fragrances this winter. A forewarning: I'm weird about scent preferences and lean toward the piney, funky smells.

    I picked up samples of Odeur 53, Dover St Market, Black, Original, #2, CDG x Monocle Laurel and Hinoki, Amazingreen, Wonderwood, CDG x Hussein Chalayan Airborne, and Black, among other non-CDG fragrances.

    Black was disappointing. It's been a few months, so I can't recall exactly why, sorry. My reaction was instant and I only wore it twice around the house. I liked a lot of other ones, with Laurel, Odeur 53, Airborne, and Wonderwood being some of my favorites, but I bought Hinoki. I realized Wonderwood is at every mens store in NYC, so it may be a little ubiquitous, but it does smell nice. Airborne is maybe the funkiest one of the bunch. Odeur 53 reminds me of my grandmother in good and bad ways...but mostly good ways. I almost bought Airborne but one time I thought I smelled just like my boss and got weirded out. I don't like Amazingreen; it reminds me of all those "clean" mallbro scents. That "clean" smell does nothing for me.

    Terre d'Hermes is the best thing you can get at a mall here in North Carolina but not the best thing for me. I did like Hermes' grapefruit scent, whatever it's called. I have yet to find a Tom Ford I particularly like but the selection down here can be wonky. I don't think I've seen Tuscan Leather or the ouds. The Creeds I've tried, Virgin Island Water and Silver Mountain Water, have been nice, as everyone says. VIW is way cool but I haven't worn either enough to really report.

    not CDG, but I bought and love Slumberhouse Norne because it's like a big wallop of pine sap and nutmeg. I don't see myself wearing much of it in the summer months though.

    Hm. Great input mate, will think twice about copping black now. just when I read 'initial scents of pepper and leather' I was intrigued. I've heard good things about Hermes a lot but I think it's also quite popular, I want something that nobody has. Narciso Rodriguez is also an intriguing scent.. I'm hunting now on fragrantica. You not tried 8 88 or even 2?
