    This is odd. I ordered pretty fast after going online, but my shipping says not expected until next Tuesday.

    Will let you guys know if I get the right ones.

    Mine are waiting at home for me. I'm hoping I won't have to go through the same frustrating situation. You're the second person so far they mentioned it here I believe.

    Not bad at all mind you given my large drop and the fact I haven’t yet swapped for a smaller size trouser, they’re pretty roomy.

    Yeah, I would know the difference too, I have a pair of last year's VBC in the same/similar color, lol. Idk it's not as bad as receiving the wrong pants w the suit though, as happened to the other guy. Accidents happen, under a certain light they probably look very similar. Just amusing. I'll ship em back w whatever I don't keep from the other stuff I ordered. Maybe I can get a free return out of it, lol.

    I own both. Minnis is heartier, heavier in weight, it has a drier hand almost scratchy in texture. Very distinct.

    There’s also quite a lot of information on these high twist tropical wools on the unfounded liabilities thread. My understanding is that Minnis is the standard with the other more popular options being Smith Finmeresco, Dugdale's New Fine Worsted (NFW), and Holland & Sherry Crispaire
