    @dackman and @zcm, have you guys considered looking on Yoox? They carry a lot of Italian brands, which are more apt to have patch pockets, and there are a lot of summer blends on there right now (in addition to a 20% code). In addition, it's not hard to find makers that are frankly much nicer than J. Crew or LE, sometimes for comparable prices. Sizing can be something of a crapshoot, but the return policy is pretty fair.

    As an aside, I got an unstructured Cantarelli navy wool blazer there a few weeks back that I rather stupidly took the tags off before realizing that it's too a bit too small for me that I'll probably try to flip here soon. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, @zcm, but it's probably about your size, and it wears very lightly - definitely a spring/summer jacket.

    I was looking at this a while back too. Is it just me or does the jacket look better on the ground in the article then on the LE model. I guess this is what stopped me. As a piece of clothing it looks good, but can I pull it off. I get irritated when I'm digging a shoe but there's zero photos of someone wearing them.

    @Siepi, I've glanced at Yoox a couple times, but have never done a very in-depth search. I'll have to investigate further this weekend. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Interesting. I'll check out Yoox too. Im not necessarily looking for a summer/spring blazer but just another blazer to be in the usual rotation. I have a few that get regular wear and the rest are kind of 'fun' or casual (and usually quite cheap). Can you send me a link to the one you mentioned.

    Are their belts veg tanned leather, or some faux pleather variety?

    I hear ya. I wish I could see this in real life. That's what's stopping me, too. I love how it looks in the PTO article, but it's hard to tell in the model shots what's real.

    Lands' End is a problematic shopping experience, too, or at least it has been for me. The return process was very long for a couple of shirts I sent back. I didn't get a credit to my debit card until 2.5 weeks after I sent the package back. Plus they charge for the return, so if you pay for shipping and then the return, you lose out. If you don't pay the $5 for the 2-day shipping, it takes more than a week to get the stuff. Hard to believe they're so slow when the whole rest of the commerce world seems so speedy these days.

    @dackman and @zcm, I'd strongly suggesting using Aliotsy's pre-made search to funnel through the crap (and there is a lot of crap). I'd add the various LBM lines, Brando, and a few others to your search criteria as well.

    I would like to get a pair of medium or light gray 3 season flannel trousers. The only option I am finding is from Howard Yount at close to $200. EBay is also pretty dry on anything but charcoal. Any other and cheaper options?

    @doomx, J. Crew has their Classic Fit wool Bowery's in medium gray on sale for around $75, most sizes available. I have that exact pair and they've easily become my favorite work pants.

    @doomx, Howard Yount pants are great. I have a pair in light grey that I wear all the time. I also have some from J Crew as well that are solid as well.
