Fitzgerald Fit Plain-Front Cotton Twill Trousers
Fine cotton twill, poor fit
I purchased two pair of these and have kept them. I was looking for a ruddy-ish khaki and an olive color pant, and these fit the bill and have a fine twill hand.
The Milano fit is so, so much better than the Fitzgerald, which sits incredibly awkwardly around the pelvis. I prefer even the Madison fit to the Fitzgerald. Nonetheless, I kept them because I like the colors and fabric too much.
Brooks Brothers: PLEASE shift your slim-cut pant offerings to all Milano, or at least offer any Fitzgerald selections in a Milano cut as well. Suits, as well, should not be nested if they are offered in multiple fits (so, e.g., you could pair a Fitzgerald jacket with Milano trousers).

Finally found the perfect pants
These are excellent pants and better than anything I've found at RL or VV. The fabric is substantial enough to be durable while remaining four season comfortable. Judging from my old pairs, I expect about three years with weekly washing before they look too worn for work.
The color of the navy and brown are very bold, much more so than they appeared on my screen. Not sure how long they will last without fading but I'm definitely using cold water and color safe detergent. Shouldn't look bad a little faded anyway, hopefully.
The fit gives the appearance of being tailored and looks much more refined than a casual cut, especially for an athletically built man. Fits true to size (if you're honest with yourself). I ordered the same size I always wear in BB (despite the other reviewer's advice) and couldn't be happier with the comfort and look.
Definitely not too slim- there is no thigh clinging or discomfort whatsoever- but not so loose that you look like a droopy bottomed farmhand.
These are work appropriate for business casual. It is difficult to find pants that are masculine (not metro) but not too baggy and young looking either. Very satisfied with these and I hope BB keeps the Fitzgerald around for good.

Great winter pants
Nice pants the but the waist runs 2 sizes smaller.
