Unis has some pretty awesome ones, never heard a bad thing about them from people I've talked to that own them.

You may also want to look at wings + horns and unis. If you try the Epaulet route, I would suggest starting with the Rudy cut as opposed to the Slim Walt. I don't have what I would consider large thighs, though bigger than most, and the Walts are just painted on me. Also, Epaulet doesn't really say it much, but if you do buy from them and it doesn't work out, they will usually take a return if you mention that you are from SF.

Ugh, I have two pairs and they're okay, but nothing special. I cannot, for the life, of me understand why any sap would pay full retail for those.

I gave it a thumbs up, but also wanted to say that cardigan is dope. I have the same one. Robe tie is taking me some time to get used to, but love the way it hangs open when undone.

thanks, skipper. and thank again to everyone else who helped. i did not check epaulet just now, but last i did, they had no pants at all in my size. (fat size)

i went and grabbed a pair from uniqlo (thanks parker), and a pair of LMC thanks to the tip off from Dorje. i hope the ones they had at myhabit fit as well as the ones i have already.

i looked into incotex but they were all in the $300 range, if i spend that much on chinos, it would be IH.

i think i will have the j crews i have tailored to fit slimmer in the thigh. if i end up with 2 pairs i am really happy with, i think i can call it a success.

Stitches, have you had RRL chinos recently? I bought an older pair on ebay that fit like a tent, but the recent Officer chinos are some of the best fitting ones I've tried - SVB has a pair if I'm not mistaken so you could ask him. And +1 on Wings + Horns and Unis, but you might want to try them on first as they're rather slim through the thigh.

I think Baron Wells has stopped producing clothes, so whatever stock remains on the website is it. I got a pair of the Village Tapers from their post-website overhaul collection and the pockets were really narrow and almost unusable. I think their old chinos were cut better.

i just bought a pair of RRL officers chinos last week and sent em back. i think maybe due to my larger waist size, the whole pant is huge. i am broad/wide, but not hugely fat, so often when i get the right waist measurement, the crotch/butt (front and rear rise) is very low and saggy and the thighs are tenty, thats what i had with the RRLs. looked into a bunch on ebay too, but the measurements were all the same as the ones i returned.

IIRC most people on this forum who buy those RRL's get them tapered a lot, they also stretch.

i kinda thought about it, and had i picked them up on discount, i might have. but since i paid full retail, i did not want to risk not being able to return, and not being happy with the result. also, i think that was too much for me to spend on chinos now.

these are the pair i got.

Oh, different from the selvedge officer chino's - those probably fit even more fully.
