    The only option I see right now is J. Crew. Murray's Toggery Shop doesn't offer a slim fit...

    Any others? Does Brooks ever put these out seasonally?

    Did I see some Bill's Khakis in pink? My expereince long ago was that only Murray's faded. The rest (a la Orvis etc.) are merely that God-awful salmon...forever.

    Yeah, if you want the real thing. That fabric is sui generis. I have not seen anything other than Murray's that is the same. If you encounter anyone familiar with the original, thay will know the difference.

    I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Brooks offer them in the Milano fit this spring.

    This may be obnoxious on my part, but I really only consider the "Nantucket red" moniker to apply only to Murray's pants...you can never go wrong with the original.

    I own the original and I think the special red vineyard vines are better. Murray's actually sells vineyard vines so they must think it is pretty good as well.
