Well, the "big news" today is that Thom Browne will launch a capsule women's collection this fall, but here's the actual news: Thom's been making womenswear for quite some time now. If you're friendly with his sales staff - and willing to shell out thousands for your outfit - you can already buy some of his womenswear pieces at his studio and shop downtown. Whether you'll look good in his straight-lined silhouettes is an entirely different story, but if you're killing for a pair of menswear slacks and can't quite pull off Thom's proportions - or Thom's prices - there are some options. If you're small, the boy's department at J. Crew or Ralph Lauren is a great place for pants (and it's okay if they hit at the ankle for summer, just like Thom's do). If you're a normal size, Trovata also makes some good slacks for girls...
