I like the colour - will go well with cream or light blue shirts, I think.

Spoke to the seller, nice chap, but still agonizing if i should get it. Do you guys think its worth the 80usd, or I'm better off getting 1.3-1.5m of cloth and getting them tailored by AL?

Now, where can I source out tan colored linen...any ideas? I find it difficult to find materials similar to the cotton chinos, does anyone know where I could source them out? The ones on ebay (Brit fabrics, huddersfield) don't seem to have any excess of them.

On my next pair of trousers, I'll use what Jefferey Diduch uses for his waistband interlining: hair canvas. I have a stiff one here that would be perfect.
When trying to source my own interlining for my next pair of trousers, I came across "wool-hair" and "horse-hair" interlining. From what I know, isn't horse hair used for chest interlinings? Can both do the trick for trouser waistbands? Wool hair interlining is the cheaper option.

Basically, one type (the softer one) is used on the entire length of the jacket front, Some people call this category of canvasses "body canvas". The other type, much stiffer, is used on the chest only, terminating above the working button. I and many others call this "chest canvas".
You want to buy a body canvas, but a firmer sort of body canvas.
I'll bring along some samples on Sunday.

On the subject, I just managed to pick up a pair of cream linen pants on sale. Unfortunately, the pockets/half-lining are quite visible under the fabric (my complexion's quite dark so that makes the contrast a smidgen worse). What d' you think, gentlemen? Ought I return it for a refund (I still can) or should I wear them in KL with heck of a lot of sprezz?

I like that color, green linen sounds like a good walk about pants. Anyway, I think you should just rock-up with that cream linen pants. My complexion is also a little bit on the not so bright side, anyway, post a picture. That would be great ! Thanks for the link btw !
