    Good luck with the Ghurka sizing up. I'm sure I'd squeeze into the Truman, but if the waist is spot on true to size it's going to be a squeeze :embar:

    Roll ≠ WIWT, right? This is what I tried on at home because the only other pair of shoes I have are running shoes. And yes, I know something other than Birkensocks would be better, but this is all I've got to work with.

    Hey eluther hope you don't mind me asking. You're more than 6 ft tall right? Those highland pants look great on you, and I suspect part of the reason is that the pockets don't look so goofy if you have longer legs

    Pants look great. @penanceroyaltea on those pockets, there is an easy way to make them relatively flat to the thigh/ pants: Just put safety pin or something right in the middle and attach to upper flap/ layer. The reason the appear to bulge that much is that the two buttons on each corner when closed cause the middle to sag down. Nothing wrong with it if you like that look but by attaching the middle as well with something, they will appear non-bulging.

    What shirt is that again? It has a pattern?

    Thanks – glad you think they look good.

    I'm 6' almost exactly. Attention to the pocket placement's makes sense – although mbaum is shorter than I am and looked good in the olive ones. That being said, the Reggie model didn't boost my confidence they were going to work. My guess is that fit is TTS. You're totally right, though, that the pocket's placement (moreso than its size, I think) makes it look strange. Though, like Mike says, maybe adjusting the size would improve it.

    @mbaum – Shirt is the Tab Collar in Off-White tattersal; it's the tattersal they didn't use for the Dayton shirt.

    @eluther i, do you know where I can find that shirt? I only find the Dayton-like tatersall tab. Thanks, man.

    Damn, so on the fence on the Highland in Olive ... Amer Rag still has the 36 ...

    @mbaum MAC in SF is the only place I've seen it stocked. It's "Off-white" instead of "Eggshell," if that helps you locate it.

    Looks great, MoK.

    Nice to see Albam represented, too.

    I have a few pieces. So simple and good.

    Yes - I've got a few pairs of Albam trousers. Decent value and good consruction. I find their outerwear a bit bland,but they're a good brand for mixing with more interesting pieces.
