stitch, a word of advice, when looking for cotton/khaki office pents, don't pick anything up that has the inseam(and outseam) stitched the way those are. You should not be able to see any stitching on the inseam (or the hem for that matter), those are typically uber casual pents.

A good rule of thumb would be to purchase pants with unfinished hems. Usually all other [frequently overlooked] details are there, then.

Edit, those are nice looking pents. 25% off is making them look e'en better.

thanks ed.

by inseam you mean the part by your things? (these have no stitching there bty) and outseam, you mean the hem that goes down the outside facing part of the leg, yes?

sidebar - many of my better dress office pents (inc the ones from you) have stitching (albeit more subtle) going down the outside of the leg from the pocket opening. i assume that is fine.

the inside part where the leg is stitched together and goes all the way down. Also, those pants were pre/factory hemmed? at the higher end, pants will not come hemmed.

Okay, I get it now. Yeah, if those are indeed Crew's "broken-in" chinos that Stitchy's wearing then I concede your point. That particular line of chinos is pretty weather-beaten right off the rack and deserves to be worn more like sweats than chinos (IMHO). I thought Stitch was wearing Crew's "Essential" chinos, which are quite preppy and blazer-worthy.

i wonder why they look so "schlub-ish." they describe the cut as:
"Sits on hips, slim through hip and thigh, with a narrow leg."

Have you taken them to an alterations tailor yet? They're not really YOUR slacks until they've been altered.

aha, that seam is closed without any visible stitching. indeed they were pre hemmed, but i had them shortened. i have no illusions that these pants are higher end. they were merely meant to be used as serviceable, decent casual pants.

they are not really blazer worthy, but they are not = to sweats imo. the tailor only shortened the hem. didnt have her mass with leg width or anything. not worth spending more on alterations than the pants, they were 30 bucks each.

Simple rule Stitchy - belt, pents, and shoes should not all match.

Going to cross post my picture from the tailor thread to get some input on style instead of just fit (didn't get any responses anyway). I don't think this looks great, but I don't know exactly why. Perhaps a smaller waist and point collar.
