No clue about Brooks Brothers but I actually just emailed J.Crew about their chino sizing since I was curious. These are for the Essential Chinos:
Think I might try the Classic Fit. I have a pair of Urban Slims and sort of hate the way it tapers below the knee. Classic Fit seems the same from the knee up.
The article seems to indicate that clothes are no longer specifically sized larger for the American market. My only experience with Uniqlo was some XS oxfords from a few years ago that fit like an american Small. Is it true the sizing is smaller?
I dont know if you're kidding or not, but I remember reading that the straights have a pretty high rise which would indicate to me that sagging is a valid way to wear them, unless you're really tall or like wearing your jeans up to your armpits.
