Hi Angie,Inge et al:

I'm looking for the ultimate black trouser for fall. I don't have local access to a lot of better brands, so am willing to order on-line upon your best recommendations. I am looking for a very high quality super-fine/cool wool (or closest blend) (in other words , no rayons, no jersey) woven, front zip fly opening, side pockets, straight leg or flare (not cropped or pegged, I have that covered) . The classic trouser, if you know what I mean. Mid-lower rise. Nothing tricky, no banded bottoms. I love a side slit in the hem though - and did try on a pair at BCBG with a front seam that was interesting but didn't fit well in the waist. Price - i'm flexible if it's the right fit. In past experiments, Vince doesn't fit me well - too snug in the thighs. I've never tried on a Theory pant. I have CM here in Wpg, as well as BR so don't need those. My body: much smaller waist than hip (so alterations may be necessary) so I suppose I'm some type of an hourglass. Thanks in advance - this is my one big score to make for fall.
