    +1 Very Recent. And strictly on the fabric I would say blazer. But I might be inclined to put a nice set of horn buttons on there. :nodding:

    I prefer mine just above the knee. I have a pair of BB linen shorts that have a 8 in inseam, but are 2-3 inches above my knees :(

    Anyone want them?

    What's the waist? I have short-ish legs for my height, so that's a decent length for me

    Forgot to post these Pics, so I'll play a little catch up.

    Got 3 Pairs of Zanella Double Pleated (33) ...they are the bottom 3 on the stack. One pair (tan) is LP Tasmanian 120s fabric.

    And these:

    Measure 37"

    2 of the 9 Brannock Devices I found yesterday. I especially have a good feeling about the one for Buster Brown Shoes, a lot of hits and several watchers already.

    Also picked up another pair of Zanellas last night. Tagged 36, double pleated/cuffed, beige.


    EDIT: Apologies to the mods, apperently my original unicorn pic was not SF approved and was removed.

    OKC.....make sure to check out Bricktown Brewery. They make a nice beer. As for thrifts, I'd check the Edmond area. It is also worth a drive down to Norman.

    Nah, was on my BB. Trying to quote somone else and must have hit multi on one of your posts. Went back and corrected my post.

    But while we're just chatting, just the two of us, those Zanella unicorns: They gray or brown? And what's the inseam?

    More gray than brown, but there is a hint of brown. Inseam is 30", Outseam 41" could be lengthened 2" and let out 2" in the waist. Clean lining. Non-cuffed
