I must say, my most favorite thing to do besides scoring something awesome off of eBay or in a thrift store, is going to the back of a store, hitting the sales rack, and finding something that is off-season, and in this case these were almost 80% off the original price.
I purchased these Glen plaid wool pants at Club Monaco during another one of my NYC trips. I believe at the beginning of the season, there was also a blazer to go with it.
My Tailor and a few friends always ask me why I don’t just buy my size. Well, under these circumstances, my size is normally not going to be there. For these pants, that’s just fine. Also, as previously mentioned, I have a small waist, but I have more athletic thighs, so I normally have to go up a size to accommodate the legs. These pants happened to be the size I needed!
So, I had them taken in at the waist, tapered, hemmed and a 1″cuff.
