I get shit for my chinos being too tight/short (the way I like them). Not sure if these qualify as chinos thought, cotton twill/herringbone pants. Any rate, I like the way his chinos were cut. I have MAYBE 100 bucks to spare a month total. Thats my "fun" money. And if I spend it on clothes, that means no movies with the missus, no going out to eat, etc. Hence me being a tight bastard.
Lately, I also have been spending most of my clothes money on alterations. I have a lot of stuff in my closet that I would never wear only because of a bad fit, so a few dollars on alterations is well-spent money.
The chinos that I posted, however, cost me $30 (I think) to slim and taper. As GBear pointed out, not all chinos should have stacks - I only went with (a very little) extra length on mine because the fabric is a thick ribbed cotton, and the stacks actually stack. With yours, Liam, I'd be concerned that the extra length would bunch up around the ankle, and not really stack. I guess you could have them tapered and slimmed first, and then see if you need the length reduced.
I agree completely. But fortunately, Liam's pants are actually chinos.
(I think you knew that - just wanted to clarify for posterity)
Always interesting, unusual posts!
