My daughter told me to get a gift certificate for her husband, my SIL, so he can buy slacks. He's a self-employed writer, nothing fancy, but casual.

Any good suggestions? I hate to shop off or on line so my mind is a complete blank.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks Sassberto for the recommendation. I was hoping to find an on-line store that sells slacks where I can get a gift certificate, and that might also be in his local area (Pittsburgh).

Any clues?

I would imagine you have Nordstrom in your area? They have a web site too.

Try Joseph A. Banks or Mens Warehouse-on their sites they'll advise you whether they have stores in his area.

Those $175 pants must come with an easy access flap in the rear because anybody who would spend that much money for a pair of pants must really enjoy being shafted.

What would you expect for 100% Italian worsted wool slacks? This isn't some made in China garbage - these are going to last you a lifetime.

If you are careful you can pay half that at a sale. I got mine for about 80 bucks. Only suckers pay retail anyway.

Sassberto is right: good slacks, 100% wool, you gotta pay for it. However, I am only willing to offset the cost of a pair this SIL will wear, a stay at home writer with no taste in clothes, at all.

Good call. What about Calvin Klein? Should be about 80 bucks retail, good quality.
