as long as they fit you you'll love them. i honestly can't say enough good things about them. the quality is spectacular. arguably some of the finest trousers i've owned.

i'm assuming the epaulet trousers are like $200ish?
i have a tough time paying $200+ for wool pants alone
i think the most i've spent on pants only was about $130-150 ... and i have yet to find pants that i absolutely love
some RL purple label wool pants came close but i passed because they were like $250 on sale or something

depending on the fabric, the wool ones are $215 - $235... there are some more expensive ones, harris tweed, etc. and some cheaper ones, cotton which are around $165. i agree with you on the pants price thing. i don't know if i've ever spend more than $150 on pants, and after never finding any i really liked, i made the plunge. completely satisfied.

that's the thing
i think i just have to suck it up ... because i did really like the RLPL pants .. just not the price
so they're out there.. just not in the under $150 range most of the time

g'day gents

nordstroms rack just opened up near me, heard they have a handful of good deals, lots of AE's as well. Neumora for $200, if I can find my size in brown, I would get those in a heart beat. Still love them with slim gray dress pants

nordy rack is good for emergencies when you just need to walk in and grab something without looking for a sale
never found anything that was an amazing deal
can often find something better for same or less at regular nordstrom or similar stores on sale

yeah it's legit merchandise
i have seen some current season items at nordy rack as well... like these shoes that my dad bought in regular nordstrom
$50 less at the nordy rack
they had some scuffs from probably being tried on at the store but nothing to indicate that they were seconds or anything else was wrong with them

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Four in hand. I wear spread collars and the knot is proportional to the space.
