Sing the Praises of Pants!

Systematically, every pair of work trousers I own has been undergoing Critical Structural Failure, to the point where I'm beginning to suspect conspiracy.

So, tho it pains me to do so (because I'm lazy), I've broken down and ordered five new pairs. The nice thing about ordering from Casual Male is that I can get them, well not quite tailored, but hemmed to my specifications. And when you have a 33" inseam and a passion for cuffs, that's a big deal! (You try finding 33" trousers with cuffs off the rack. I dare you.)

I also had a cardigan call my name while I was shopping, which is a tad silly given that we're getting into the warm weather now and I probably won't have occasion to wear it until October. But I've been wanting one like this for a while now (and not to do Mr. Rogers cosplay, I don't know how these crazy rumors get started), so I might as well grab it and just shove it into the closet over the course of summer.

I've been a bit remiss in the clotheshorse department lately anyway, so hopefully this will take up the slack.

Oh, speaking of clotheshorses, Classic Style Magazine, source of the icon for this post, still thinks it's Fall 2007 and hasn't sent out any new issues, so I suspect it's gone belly-up. Shame that, it was a great magazine for all four of its issues. Le sigh!

I ... I ... I ...

So many clothes. So many terms.

I don't know if I could ever handle that. I have my Dockers, my jeans, work shirts and my dress shirts.

Relax! It's okay. :) Find a place you're comfortable with, and you'll be fine.

I can never find odd-numbered waist-sizes, but I compensated by introducing more cheese and chocolate into my diet!

(of course...now I'm trying to claw that back :P)

Having had critical structure failure in several pair of jeans lately, I feel your pain. *shakes fist* DAMN YOU, FRICTION!

What kind of cardigan is it? And who cares whether we're getting into warm weather season. When you see something you like and it's your size, it's a moral imperative to buy it because by the time it IS cardigan weather, that style/color will have been discontinued.

Ooh! That's nice!

What color did you pick?

The burgundy one, as shown. :)

I hadn't heard of Casual Male XL before I visited Florida this year, but when I went in and had a look around I was in shopping heaven, and had a big spree of shopping for NICE stuff that would fit my rotund frame ;)

UK fat shops tend to be a case of "here's stuff in your size, see which design you want of these horrible pieces" or whatever as opposed to proper selection availability.

You don't suspect that Drezzer is on one of his "Down with Pants" campaigns again?
