Uh asking for a friend...

Anybody know of pants that arenít the awful M&H ones that are more fitted and comfortable and go well with the blazer?

A Cut Above pants are pretty nice. The fabric is a slightly different style from the blazer, but the color is the same so no one will notice.

I go to Kohls and Target and buy multiple pairs. Take them all home and try them on to match the blazer. Return those that don't fit will and don't match. It would be easier to take the blazer into the store..... But who wants to be that guy.

The M&H pants are actually a quality pant. I agree that the fit sucks though. Spend the $10-15 and have them tailored to you. It's cheaper than buying another pant.

If you get M&H make sure to get the (S) ďslimĒ even if your not not slim... get the slim..

I may try this. The only ones I have are back from when I was a new hire and the bottoms of the pants are like bell bottoms that flop around like a mentally-challenged fish when I walk. Assuming they are not slim as they couldn't get one thing right on the order form to begin with.

Does anyone like the longcoats? Or do most people just stick with the blazers?

Thatís exactly how the non ďsĒ are. Feel like a 70ís bus driver..

I buy Nike golf slacks from Dicks sporting goods. A little pricey but well worth it to me. Fit, comfort and style well above anything else out there IMHO. I don't wear the blazer though so cant speak to the color match. Does however match a Cut Above sweater very nicely

The only thing I get with my allotment are belts and epaulettes. The clothes are garbage. Kohl's for pants and cut above shirts.

The long coat helps with blocking the wind in cold and windy situations. Policy says you have to have your hat on when you wear it. Thatís pretty much the only time I wear my hat, when I wear my long coat.

Costco has some Izod golf pants that are pretty bullet proof, stretchy, and no iron for about $30-40?

I've used them for years now with no issues.

I don't think any CP will care as long as they are kept up?

Does anyone wear the Perrone leather flight jacket instead of the blazer? A CA at my interview said it was too bulky, but I'm a flight jacket guy. I'm thinking maybe you still should get the blazer even if you have the flight jacket?
