    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If you're a 34 in the straight leg, you shouldn't have to size up in a slim fit or low straights. The only time to go up in size would be for the slim bootcuts which are slimmer in the thighs and calfs. Otherwise you should be good true to size.

    Wow...thanks for clearing that up. [​IMG]

    Apparently reading is overrated and I apparently have not done a very good job of it here. All I kept noticing was people talking about the narrow thighs in Slims and never noticed the differences in the two.

    Really again, thanks for the help! [​IMG] R

    It was produced for the brand when the brand started in the early '90s and used in display where the brand was sold, like at Macy's and in Polo stores. They weren't for sale, just a display item. In the late '90s a bunch came up on eBay. It's a good find, if you're obsessive.

    And whether those are bullet holes around the left R... How big is this thing? I'm sure if you put it on eBay some crazy reseller would have to have it for mucho $.

    Here's a real winner for this fall as well as 20 years from now. I think that particular Aran pattern is really interesting.

    They are not bullet holes. What looks like a hole on the left R is a bump in the metal with the yellow paint from the background coming through. It is roughly 24 inches wide and 17 inches tall.

    Anybody else have this problem with their low straights where the waist is loose but the legs fit alright? Not sure how it would work with the waistband construction, but has anyone had the waist tailored?

    I haven't had that specific problem. But I have noticed that the fit on the low straights is wildly inconsistent, or they change it up somewhat often. I have a pair of Spring Creek wash from fall 2010 that is somewhat wider below the knee, and then a pair of Tobacco wash from fall 2011 that tapers a lot, almost as much as a slim, but not quite. It's still one of my favorite cuts but I've experienced a lot of variation across seasons/washes.

    Has anybody purchased any new Fall gear yet?

    So far the only thing I copped was the Crosby Chinos.

    These pants are insane. The Japanese Cotton Moleskin is so soft and comfy. They feel like sweatpants. Highly recommended!!!
