I try not to blindly shun every single store because of its connection with the mall, but fuck mall stores for not stocking any slim-fitting chinos. My best friend is getting married Saturday and I wanted to pick up a new pair of chinos for the rehearsal dinner on Friday. I stupidly wait until today to go looking for said pair of chinos, just assuming I'd get them at J. Crew.
The only pairs that didn't have baggy legs were limited in sizes, so I left empty handed. I scoured several other possible stores that might have something that could work, but it was one rack of relaxed or straight chinos/khakis after another.
