    Does anyone have any recommendations on slim fitting tropical wool trousers? I need to get some in the next 10 or so days as I will need them for a wedding somewhere hot & humid. Linen would probably crease far too much. Thinking charcoal or gray. Not looking to spend a fortune though [​IMG]

    The Chicago Mansion had some nice Purple Label light gray pants in 40 and some lighter blue ones in 38 for 162.

    I bought a pair of the grays and love them.

    I'll second the RL recommendation and add that the blue Polo range has some nice ones as well RLPL.

    I doubt that at this point I will make it to Phoenix. Any other suggestions, hopefully online?

    A 40 is a slim fit pant? Trousers with a 40" waist are all over the place. How about finding some in a 29 or 30?

    LL Bean has some very acceptable ones, with various pleats/plain fronts.

    The charcoal heather ones are really pretty dark. The grey heather is more of a mid-grey-- good with a blazer.


    Are they relatively slim or will I look like an extra from an MC Hammer video with my thin legs?

    Dunno. I get the classic pleated model one size up because it does supply a decent amount of room in the thighs. Plain front may be a different story.

    They Fedex and are notoriously flexible about returns. Worth a try. Quality is not absurdly high, but value is good.

    Borrelli and Jil Sander, for example, do great slim leg pants.
