Argh!! From davesmith?
not this one. from LS. need get DS swag sooner than later. for shame.
Nice. Enjoy it.
here it be, guys. levis made and crafted. my first selvedge too!!
what kind of pants are that? cotton casual?
Stitches, you are in dire need of an intervention.
blue is a pair of cotton chinos. the khaki are a cotton/lined blend, edmorel recommended i get a pair.
indeed. it is a problem. however, after your comments on my khakis of last, i felt i needed some less crappy ones. still, i have a problem, no doubt.
I liek Bills

I'm not trying to be malicious and I had a whole long winded diatribe I was going to write but just one question, what are you going to wear those with, particularly the navy pair?
he taught you basics about pantalones, iirc. ed knows his stuff.
if you dont want to post it, please to PM, i always appreciate your point of view. i dont take your criticisms as malicious, you have a lot to give in these areas. (inb4 ed has a lot give, mushroom pen0r joak)
i know there is a disdain here for navy trou, like the gray SC, but i wear navy trou. i like it with a brown SC, or a gray one, or sometimes just with a nice stripe or pattern shirt, sans jacket.
i would wear the navy pants with more casual shirts that i wouldnt otherwise wear with a SC. things like the large ginghams i posted in the MC casual thread. these are a more structured pant than the j crew khakis i have, i think they would lend a more dressy look to wearing a casual shirt, more work appropriate. and if i wanted to throw on a SC, i think these would be better suited for that.
the khaki colored, linen/cotton blend would be for the same shirts, but the less dressy look. just a better quality and slighter slimmer fitted pant. and as i mentioned, you recommended a cotton/linen blend for a shirt of mine, and i thought i would give that look a try. i imagine you are not a fran of the back flap pockets.
does that make sense, or am i talking crazy talk?
no it doesn't make sense. both those pants are really, really casual. I hope you got them cheap tho - M&C quality is pretty miss from what I'v seen.
also if that's the aesthetic you're going for -- the casual workwear vibe -- you should look at RRL. much, much nicer pieces. or even LVC.
so i saw the prices you paid (from spoo's). not that bad honestly. i guess they're a good introduction to that aesthetic.
also wasn't zegna making david chu's? or incotex? i remember having a pair that were identical to some incotex i had.
the khakis, are indeed very casual. maybe im wrong about the navy chinos, but they are a rather "firm," if thats the right word, weave. they seem to keep their shape, and not end up all loosey goosey, which i translate into more dressy than casual, maybe im wrong about that.
i dont generally look for that casual aesthetic on most days, but when i wasnt super pleased with the result when i did, and i thought this would be a possible solution to that. this was more of a thought out purchase, than just, ooooh pants, must to kop.
i looked at RRL when i was in the RL store this summer. fantastic stuff, but far more than what i am looking to pay for my casual wear. if you know a place to get RRL on the cheap, please lmk. not jeans tho, im not a jawns guy.
Very ice stitchy, but take it easy on the pants now. You have way to many!
