Sounds nice, Trip, and comfortable, too.
I am basing my formal wardobe on a pair of black pants, as well. Really, they're a part of an outfit, but the jacket is quite out of date (shoulder pads, big!) But the pants fit well and the length is perfect.
My project is to find something new to wear with them. It's a bit early for holiday eveningwear, however.
I wonder if some women will hold back a few items for the second cruise.
