Yesterday I said to hell with it. I need new clothes, and I don't want to wait any longer. So I went to Cambridgeside Galleria and bought a shirt at Banana Republic, two shirts and two pants at Filene's, and a belt at Express for Men.

I learned a couple of interesting things. My pants size differs according to the style of pants. In slacks/khakis/etc., I am a 38" waist with a 34" inseam. In jeans I am anywhere from 34" to 38", depending on the cut. I bought a pair of Calvin Klein work-cut jeans in a 36" waist. The CK jeans in the straight leg cut, though, would have to have been a 38" if I were to buy them. Another brand (I don't remember which) still looked loose and baggy at 36", so if I had liked the style sufficiently I would have had to find a 36". I'm surprised that there isn't more consistency in pants sizing.

I like the threads I bought, but I have questionable taste at times, so they may not be as stylish as I think. I may need an nth opinion. Anyone interested coming over for a mini fashion show? Not looking for flattery, just honest opinions to help me decide.
