Slim Trousers

Last night I wore one of my many cashmere blazers with some flannel (gray) pants. I have recently lost weight (75 lbs over the past 2 years, nice and slow), I have several pairs of "slim" cut pants, I love what they do for my look. Who makes slimmer trousers? I am going to have to replace or have altered most of what I have (waist went from 42 to now a 34), most of my trousers now are 36, Ill take them down to a 34.. I also do not want to go too slim or trendy, just a more fitted sleek look. Any advice or direction is appreciated.
Oh, BTW, last night was the first time in 1.5 years I wore black shoes....I am still not comfortable with black....

I think I will most likely stay this size. Zegna is good, incotex is good? Are they both in general a "slim" cut?

and they are expensive. Either are $300 or better at full retail. Needless Markup sells them both. Occasionally you might find a better men's shop will have them on an end of season clearence. I bought a pair this summer for $150.00; however, they are a very fine striped fabric tropical weight wool, and are at best a business casual pair of trousers.

You can regularly find the wool Incotex, and the ocassional Zegna, for less than $150 on the sales forum.

There's also been a fairly steady stream of them in the sales forum of late. Much better prices there than at NM.

Both Incotex and Valentini have huge collections in fabric, both cotton and wool. Uhhh... In Europe that is...

I tried many alternatives in slightly lower prices but always find they somehow just won't do; concerning fit as well as quality.

Both Borrelli and Incotex tend to run slim through the leg, but I find Incotex slimmer through the seat. However, I have to have the seat taken in for both.

Forum members edmorel & chorse frequently have Incotex pant available for great prices.

I too also lost a good chunk of weight and my closet is now almost completely filled with pants purchaed from Ed (edmorel) and Jamison (chorse).

I've also had good luck with Ian (www.shopthefinest.com) and Lance (www.virtualclotheshorse.com).


The good thing about buying quality pants is that they are easy to alter. They'll move up and down with you (within reason).

Are you willing to wear used trousers? I would have a hard time making myself purchase a used garment. I know many of you here on this forum show things you think are wonderful and others agree, but the fact remains that the clothing is used. That skeeves me out.

The Inco's and Zegna's that are currently being sold by Jamison are brand new. The one's that I have sold are brand new.
