where is the best place to find the best value in classic wool flannels? flat front, normal (not slim) fitting, cuffed, in the $125 ish price range. I have tried the Mabitex here from b/s but my thighs nearly tore through them Incredible Hulk style, and I'm not that big.

Note that those are going to fit pretty big through the legs. Most people I know have had to drop about $20-30 to get them tapered.

I think the fit pic looks perfect. About a 8.75 to 9'' opening, I estimate.

Then again, you're a "Mabitex person." I prefer straight leg pants to tapered ones.

all wool flannel is not a good trouser for heavy thighs. try all wool gabs.

other information, go to ask andy and search "inseam damage"

Don't know where you're located, but head down to the most traditional men's clothier in town and you'll find brands like Berle, Corbin, Asher-Winer, etc., all of which make some excellent quality flannels in your price range. Those companies don't do a lot of advertising, have their own stores, etc., so they can keep their prices lower than places like BB. Added bonus, most are still made in the USA.

I'm in Boston, which has a hundred of these places, but I kind of prefer to shop online. too hard to park around here
