So the 28s would be roomier than the 30s but the 32s, being at the start of another range, would be less roomy... You're right though: the Incotex are true in the waist, but I find a number of other of other pants are "waist inflated." e.g., I'll probably take the Incotex in a touch at the waist when I get them cuffed so that they are a true 29, but to get a true 29 in some other brands I would need to buy a 28.

A man after my own heart, cuffing flat front pants. I now go with a 2 inch cuff on all my flat fronts and I love the way they look!

My experience is that Incotex dress slacks (wool, both pleated and FF) are NOT super-slim. Entirely different from, say, Borrelli, which is very narrow by comparison. Incotex jeans are much narrower than their same-sized dress slacks. Khakis are in between the two.

Borrelli makes different fits for different markets and I would assume Incotex does the same. I have the same exact Borrellis in a US version and a Euro version and the fit is entirely different with the Euro being much tighter.

I also cuff all my flat front pants that are long enough. I don't understand this preference, in some cases extreme, to cuff pleated pants and hem flat front trousers.

GQGeek, I own a pair of Brioni flat front pants in charcoal gray flannel, with a nice trim fit (and cuffed). I found them at NMLC about 18 months ago for about $185 (retail $895). They are my favorite trousers and I wear them every chance I get. The fabric is maaahvelous.

Could you post a pic? I'm curious to know how that looks, and I can't picture it in my head.

Damn! Those are some bigass cuffs. If you can pull it off, more power to you. I usually do 1.5" on some pleated pants and have gone as far as 1.75" in the past but 2 inches on flat fronts looks too much like my wife's pants for me.

I just bought my first pair from NM. A bit expensive and they were the sartorial line and were not at all slim. At my age I need a full butt and full leg fit. These were.

So it sounds like you need to consider the cut and model of the pant.

It really depends on the model of the Incotex pant. I have several Grant model Incotex and they are not slim at all...however the Barneys shipment at our FB was so slim and small in the seat I could not fit into a 36.

Since this thread began, I bought 2 pairs of Incotex trousers from Lance and had to return them because the 32" waist was too tight in the thighs (I'm 6'3" 170lbs, so no bodybuilder physique here by any means). I understand that the casual cotton trousers are cut trimmer than the dress trousers.

GQgeek, my flat-front Brioni trousers are the Moena model, IIRC. I'd buy as many pairs as I could find at the price I paid. They're great!

Having now gone the Incotex route, my observations (at least on the made in Portugal, cotton pants) are that:

1) The are true to fit at the waist. A classic US brand, such as Ralph Lauren or Land´s End, in a 32 will be loose on me. With the Incotex, I´m between a 32 and a 33.

2) That said, the Incotex split-at-the-back waist and soft fabric allow the pants to follow the body´s contours well, even if the waist is somewhat tight. The pants move pretty well when you do.

3) The profile is slim, similar to the Brioni slacks I´ve seen.

Overall, I´m very satisfied. I think they are very flattering, but are best with a similarly slim fitting shirt and/or jacket. They also reveal more of the shoes.

BTW, I´d like to put in a good word for Ed Morel as a trusty SF seller (I believe forum rules allow positive comments, right?).

Thanks. What I've notice with Incotex is that the pants labelled in Euro sizing, the fit is the very slim one (my preference), the American sized stuff is fuller, yet still slimmer than the typical Brooks/Polo etc fit.

Typically the American models like the Grant are a bit fuller.

Hmm....I was thinking about picking up a pair of Incotex flat fronts in a 32 (I have a natural 32 waist). After hearing your thoughts, I don't think I can wear Incotex considering I am more like 6-1 and 190 pounds! Why is it that all quality clothing is made for people with chicken legs? Just because I squat and am in good shape does not mean I should have to suffer through wearing pants that are way too big in the waist!
