post #3226 of 3527
anyone with the new chinos have fit pics?
post #3227 of 3527
Just got my pair of the new Comer Straight Fit. They fit pretty similarly to last season's slim fit (though maybe a tad more loose). For me the fit is perfect and the quality of the material is great. Way better material than any J. Crew chinos I've seen. The garment dyed finish is also really nice. These are some damn good pants -- I'm gonna pick them up in more colors.

Why can't they make a solid consistent fit?

Is it just because people are saying they fit too slim? It's always hard to tell based on product shots.

I wish they offered them in a longer inseam or not finished at the bottom. 34 can work for me, but I find that some chinos end up shrinking and they end up being too short. Would rather buy them on the long side, wash and then get tailored perfectly.

How is the overall quality of Lands end. What's good, what to stay away from?  Mostly interested in outwear.  Some of the trousers look nice as evidenced above.

Any %off coupons?

received the red chambray, blue & grey heather long sleeve henleys yesterday

disappointed with all 3.

the chambray fits really odd...much tighter across the chest than usual LEC shirts, and billowy in the waist.

the henleys are made of a very thin cotton. not very substantial for the price.

I know not everyone here on SF shops at Eddie Bauer, or if they do, they look at backpacking clothing or their first ascent gear (like me), but I spotted these jeans on there not too long ago.

$100 white oak raw selvedge jeans. Now, they probably won't be nearly as slim as LEC's (I think EB's is a straight fit) and they aren't made in the USA. Now, I am no expert on jeans, but I can't tell if they are selvedge - the picture of the cuff doesn't seem to indicate so.

^ that is interesting from EB. They also have 25% off and free shipping and returns on jeans/pants with code "cedar". I don't normally go for the cheap way out as it usually dissapoints, but with White Oak selvage denim and free shipping both ways I figure I'd give them a try. Less than $80 after tax....we'll see what they are like when they arrive.

not sure if anybody in this thread cares, but I got my EB selvage jeans today and they aren't too bad. Denim is maybe a little lighter weight than I would like but it seems a decent selvage fabric for the price. They are made in Mexico and the quality of construction seems quite high. Chainstitched hems, chainstitching on the waist band, hidden rivets on the back pockets, nice and soft leather patch, and just a real clean construction inside. At work so haven't had a change to try them on to check the fit yet. Likely won't end up keeping them unless the fit is absolutely perfect but honestly, they are surprisingly nice for $100 and from EB.

How do the 628 straight fit chinos fit?
post #3238 of 3527
You guys do realize that "selvage" doesn't mean anything right?

As soon as they figured out that it was a potential mark of quality and coolness, they geared up big commercial looms that could put a selvage line on your pants and started rolling the cuff in all of the product shots and floor models.

Once they started selling selvage denim at old navy and lands end...it was pretty much a useless term. Not that it was a very useful term before...but at least back then the only denim with selvage lines was coming from places like cone mills and thus if you saw selvage you knew you had some interesting fabric.

Yeah, obviously. Years ago I had the Gap selvage jeans that were probably the first to jump on and water down the trend. The thing I found interesting is that it was White Oak denim which is known to be pretty solid. Honestly, this fabric isn't up to par from what I've seen from others made with White Oak fabric, which was to be expected really. They'll be going back, but it was worth checking out I felt. The fit is surprisingly slim for EB, and construction is very solid. Not bad for $80, better than most things I've seen at that price. Hidden rivets, chain stitching, leather patch and decent hardware are all surprising at this level.

I just bought several of the 608 slim (Comer and Elston), they're supposed to get in tomorrow. I'll post pics when I get them.
