Milano In The Wintertime

I've talked about the Brooks Brothers Milano pant a few times here on Sart Inc.  That's because they are awesome.  Not skinny, but trimmed up for a classier slim Neapolitan inspired look - known as "grown man pants" around these parts.  They are low rise, which for Brooks isn't anything crazy, and feature a flat front.  It's pretty much one of the better off the rack pants all American guys should be wearing, but don't because dudes over here dress like shit for the most part.  Obviously I recommend trying them on in store if you haven't already - one man's slim is another man's potato sack.  If you're thinking about making that first Milano purchase, skip the chinos and grab one of the killer F/W options that's been rolled out recently.  From wide wale cords to donegal tweed, it's all here.  There are even some crazy holiday themed pants for those of you looking to really waste some of that hard earned dough.  One of the motivations behind this post is to bring your attention to the last day of BB's current friends and family sale.  Use "03friend" at checkout to get 25% off your entire purchase.  That's, like, almost a 1/4 off, right?! Wowsers!  Now you have no excuse not to get your trouser or cord game up to snuff.  You might even want to load your cart up with some of those tasty new extra-slim fit plaid joints.

  1. Just a heads up that the cords are, in fact, "skinny." The Milano cut is not universal on the BB pant offerings. For example, the chinos are fuller than the cords, but slimmer than the dress pants. If you're planning on adding any of the Milano pants into your arsenal, you best be trying them on first.

  2. Slick- I know fit is relative, but none of these fit "skinny" from my experience. Also, I am pretty sure these all fit the same. The Milano is a standard BB cut across the board as far as I know.

    But yeah, try them on first if you can. Always.

  3. I own the Milano cords and chinos. The cords do taper quite slim from the knee down, especially compared to the chino—which hardly tapers at all.

  4. I snagged the pink flap oxford last week. For anyone looking for the perfect pink oxford, look no further. Every guy should own it.

  6. You might want to change "off the rank" to "off the rack" :)

  7. But are they understated?

    "Dudes dress like shit over here" - Don't you live in Jersey? Move out of the east coast's armpit and then you can comment on how everyone else is looking.

  8. Raoul Duke- Are you seriously telling me that the average American male dresses stylish? Or even classic for that matter? He might be understated, but that's all he's got going for him. You vacuous attempts at hating are flattering (clever link btw), but you need to come with something better than making fun of New Jersey.

  9. I think living in NJ is plenty to make fun of.

  10. Admitting comment deletion? What is this blog coming to?

  11. Anon- A blog that delete's comments that are personally degrading to others.

    Ultimately, this is my blog and I reserve the right to moderate it as such.

    At the end of the day I keep 99.9% of the comments here no matter how pointless or stupid they might be (you can easily see this for yourself).
