    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....9307082 Maybe i'm outta whack here, but these seem kinda cool, for a dressy/funky crossover. They do appear to be full cut though judging by measurements. Speaking of pants, Ian's also got some slim cut Barba cotton flat fronts listed-- I've heard praise of Barba shirts here, anyone familiar w/ their pants?

    I like them, But my tastes run a bit on the designery side, so others may well disagree with me. The pants may be less expensive on his andale site. They have been around for a while, so he may be willing to negotiate a bit.

    They seem conservative.

    Very laconic response (also see "wear Berluti's"...).

    Conservative to you? Conservative in general? Conservative in a good way? Conservative in a bad way?

    Throw me a bone here (ruff ruff).

    I like the fabric but I can't really see the cut because they are folded in the picture. I generally like Paul Smith though and his pants tend to be on the very-slim side, so I would assume the fit is right. Not sure if my assumption is worth $160 though.

    Well, they are generally conservative. Nothing frightfully outlandish so i suppose a good way. But that basis was from my perception. Perhaps not others.
