OTR brands for real "straight leg" dress trousers? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Even though they get some slack here, I love bonobos straight leg trousers. They fit me perfectly and are not too skinny nor too wide. Try out a pair. Free returns if you don't like them so nothing to lose!

OP..............What sz are you?

But you're right about the shape, I'd just forgotten about them because I never purchased any.
Note that I'm a 33w and 34L and @ 6'3", I tend to need a medium rise at a minimum.

I was out and about this past weekend and, on a whim, visited a hugo boss outlet store where - surprise! - they had some James Brown trousers in my size. I tried some on and, what do you know - they fit like a champ. Unfortunately they were heavy flannel, which - sadly - doesn't do me any good in Florida.

Still, I'm glad I revisited them - now I've got another option going forward. I'm not sure if my perspective on "fit" was that much different when I last tried them on (2 years ago?) or if they've changed the fit a bit since, but whatever - thanks for reminding me, Viral!

Good tip, and exactly what I'd be looking for size wise. I hadn't thought the Preston's were that straight, now I know : )

ps - those are nice pants for the price. I wish I lived somewhere colder so I could put those to good use!

How dressy are you trying for? Some Engineered Garments may pass the test as they are pretty straight leg

I went to the Bonobos HQ to get a fitting yesterday and was immediately impressed by the fit of the pants.
I normally wear Incotex found off these forums/Daffy's and the size is comparable, if not a wee bit more slack in the thighs.

The rise is excellent and while quality is good, isn't up to par with Incotex in my opinion.

I ordered two pairs of chinos, as those fit perfectly. May go back for dress trousers another time.

Prada Mainline.

Very straight and good quality.
