    Hm, I thought you said it was wool. If its a silk, that ribbing is usually known as a faille.

    This weeks scores included a pair of Brooks Brothers/Loro Piana labeled charcoal wool pants in my actual size for $5.99 at Savers in very lightly used condition.

    Khaki works great. Green and earth tones pair quite naturally. White would certainly work too.

    Found a Zegna pinstripe dress shirt, but the size was marked 16/42, and it looked like a tent when I tried it on, so I left it. Would have cost me $4 had I gone for it, but I never find good stuff in my size...

    I picked up a Kuhlman shirt with french cuffs, size 42. It's too big for me, but I know some guys here are fans of the brand, so I'm happy to sell it for cost ($4) plus shipping (around $5, I'd guess).
    It's white with a check pattern made from orange, light blue, light green and dark blue stripes, fairly nice 100% cotton. I couldn't find any stains or tears. The measurements are in the photos below.
    If I don't get any interest in a few days, I'll just return it. Ping me.

    New? Used? Nordstrom Rack? Thift store?

    The Dockers I just snagged from Macy's -- D1 style, electic blue, $15 -- are almost indistinguishable from Incotex. I would at least investigate them if you are at all on the fence about a pair of uber-tight-fitting pants in outrageous colors.
