Seasonal options are many times better then khakis, but they're a nice option to have, and its nice to have something which can be tossed into the washing machine.
I just got a pair of ralph lauren slim cut chinos, and they look great.
If no one has mentioned diesel, they make a pretty long 34'' inseam which is nice, and their jeans fit me better than any other jeans I've ever worn.
Also, this is an important tip regarding shoes. Tall guys have big feet, but don't have big legs, so it's important to wear a style of shoe that looks small.
I'm 6'2 and 150 btw.
P.S. I'm going to read through this thread some more, but the biggest problem I have is t-shirts. The sleeves flare out, and if I size down, the sleeves are too short. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I've never worn a tee that fit well in my life.
