    Whoah, can't believe you peeps have never heard of Britches. They were one of those stores forever squunched between The Limited and -- gah -- that one annoying men's store with the Giorgio Brutini house brand shoes? What was that called, they sold Seattle/alternative music inspired -type flannel shirts in depressing colorways...grungy, but for a preppy/aspirational crowd. This was during the mid-90's, of course. Everything was LARGE!.

    Anyways, Britches was like preppy crossed w/ a bit of outdoorsy: regular (Ralph Lauren -style flannel, plaid stuff, denim and chambray shirts, big puffy full-length coats that came in rugged man green or rugged man green, and khaki pants. Miles and miles of khaki pants. Not terribly expensive, but solid for a mall brand, with no annoying labels.

    I've still got my big green outdoorsy coat from 1994. Will poast soon.

    tldr: probably not flippable, but worth checking out if it's your size.

    (God, now someone must tell me the name of that awful men's store)

    I'd go for a bit less break in the pants but I'm very impressed with the Oxxford. I've never seen one with an up to date cut like that. They always have those big shoulders when I see them. It looks pretty hawt.

    Thanks for posting it!
