    Loafers might be SAS, but that's a guess. The ones I've seen have the size under the tongue, though.

    Maybe the thread is quieter because some people have stopped posting three-foot-long posts consisting solely of pictures of the awesome Hickey Freeman suits from 1989 and Cole Haan shoes and Calvin Klein boxer shorts they thrifted today.

    There should be a "Golden Rule of Posting." Post unto others as you would have them post unto you (or something along those lines). If you don't think to yourself "Eff yeah!" when you see it on the rack, then you should think twice about posting it. .02.

    Not now. The heels had been redone but there wasn't any markings on the soles that I could see. They were leather soles.

    Given my new wardrobe needs, I was pretty stoked to find a pair of 31W X 32L Brooks Brothers flat front chinos in like new condition (no visible wear/dirt/urine) in, I think, the Clark fit. Very slim fitting.

    You don't really need a picture of khaki chinos, do you?

    I was in the UK last year (Belfast and London), and in the six or eight charity shops I visited, I did not see anything even close to worth taking home. It seemed like a whole different ballgame over there.

    c'mon Andro, pay attention - he said they were in the 7-10 pleat range right there in the post.


    Not that I'm the Alden expert, but as far as I know Alden alway designates width with a letter (actually 2, heel and ball). The ones you linked to did the same. The ones in the OP were "M." On that, they look tired to me.
