    Does anyone have any experience/thoughts on the Old Navy Classic Slim Fit Khakis? I need a cheap pair of khakis for use solely while playing golf so I wont care if they get muddy or dirty.

    Makes me think I'd better grab one from O'C before they get wind and decide to jack their prices, too.
    Thing is, Baracuta is now owned by Italians, which explains the difference in price points. Fabric and fit has also changed. The jackets from O'Connell's and J.Crew are the British and Italian versions, respectively.

    Good info. Thanks. How'd you know this?

    So are the cheaper OConnells Baracutas just older stock, then, from when the British owned the company?

    Yes! From what I've seen, that's about $100 off the usual retail price.

    Any Beauforts there for that price? Why was it at the outlet--any defects or anything like that?

    That's an ok price for an American retailer... but you can do better if you're willing to buy from a UK retailer.

    Isn't that about the same, Ben, with shipping? Oh, wait, I just noticed the free shipping... never mind.

    Pretty nice price on a Beaufort there, too. About a hundred cheaper than anywhere here.

    Here's the source:

    The O'Connell's Baracuta is the older stock with Teflon coated cotton. The new models are made of 50/50 cotton/poly blend. See their web page here, under Care & Details:

    CountryAttire does free global delivery, so it works out to about $270.

    Sadly they don't seem to be running the "free gift" promotion at the moment.

    So I guess it would depend on if @Brent k wants to save 10% and wait a week, or spend the extra $30 and have the jacket now. Not really a right or wrong way.

    Right. Seems like a good place. Great prices, and great that the delivery is free. I will keep this place in mind when I pop for my Beaufort.

    Another subject, what is an Orvis outlet like? Is it factory seconds, defective merchandise, etc.?
