    My workhorse Banana Republic linen pants have given me 5 summers of near constant service. I darned them last year in 2 places to get one more summer out of them, but it is now time to retire them. Has anyone purchased linen pants recently? Care to share a link?

    I need to pick up a short sleeve casual (untucked) pink oxford shirt. This can be paired with linen pants and almost any color of shorts. Has anyone purchased something line this recently? Care to share a link?

    Barring these 2 items, my 2012 summer wardrobe will be unchanged from last summer.

    But surely after 5 summers, winter is coming?

    There isn't all that much summer left, in the grand scheme of things. But if you still need your linen pants, Brooks has a few cotton/linen blends on sale right now. I stocked up on Milanos a few months back, and my cock'nballs have been thanking me ever since, especially give the 100+ degree weeks we've been having.

    If you want pure linen, I would second the PRL recommendation.

    Epault Walt Linens and Chambray pants = boss. I have most all colors and I love them.
    JRD has some nice brand new 33's for sale on B/S for cheap. I'd Kop asap if you are interested in a badass summer pant.

    Perhaps this opens up a front to a more philosophically intriguing question. Can linen pants ever be said to be "badass?" Even the best ones, cut to perfection, give off kind of an old-mannish vibe a la Tommy Bahama. Perhaps not as much so as linen shirts, but still.

    I was able to squeeze one more summer, but the BR linen pants have been discarded.
    Where are you guys getting your linen pants? I need links.
    Willing to spend up to $250 since it's such a constant summer staple.

    I have several pairs, including linen jeans ( Etro).
    My newest pair is from Mabitex and is very trim with
    maybe a 9 inch rise on a 36" waist. I love them.

    Comrade, I am done with Mabitex.
    They are just too 70s disco pimp style tight.
    They border on unprofessional for the office.

    Ivar, those HY pants look like they will do, but most sizes are sold out.

    100% linen pants that are appropriate for the office? Lands' End has a few with subtle patterns.
