Do you have their Nelson pants? What do you think of those?And they're both well-priced!
TAD's Primer henleys fit me perfectly (they have a really nice athletic cut on all their lighter knits), and the thick waffle knit gives it a pretty tough vibe without going over the top. This is my third Primer...I've already got one in white and olive, and while that one looks totally black in the picture it's actually a pretty dark brown in person. $70
Foehn's Brise are probably my most-worn pants since I got my first pair. (Those were in black, this olive pair is #2) Super light with a pretty aggressive taper starting at the knee and some space up top...they're meant as climbing pants, but I've been wearing em casually. And they've got elastic on the bottom cuffs and at the waist, which means they're ridiculously comfortable. When I wear sneakers instead of boots, it's usually with these. The stitching could be a little bit better...I did have one stitch pop on me on my black pair (not enough that there was actually a failure - it was a spot in the seat where it was double-stitched, and two stitches on one of the two lines popped), but overall they're solid, and most days when I don't want to think about what to wear I end up throwing these on. $130
