J Crew 484 fit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any experience with J Crew Essential Chinos in 484?  I am a pretty slim guy and I read (on this site) that the urban slims can be wide in the hips, pretty much like the classic fit.  The J Crew Chinos can be ordered unhemmed, which is great because I probably need a 29 waist and a 33 inseam, I just want to make sure the fit will be appropriate.  These are primarily for work wear in a business casual environment, so I don't want skin tight pants nor do I want parachute pants.

 

Obviously I would like to try them on in a store, but I believe these are a catalog/online only item.  Worst case scenario I can order them and return them, but I'd like to hear what you guys have to say first.

 

Any help regarding the 484 or urban slim fit will be appreciated, as will as comments on the J Crew Essential chinos in general.

 

Thanks

No experience with the 484, but the previous comments re the Urban Slim Fit having wide hip/seat is bang on - too much excess material in the seat.

I recommend taking a look The Gap Slim Fit pants.

Looks like I will have to visit a Gap and try out those pants since I can get them with a 34 inseam.  Are there any other brands of chinos that come in extra long sizes or unhemmed (that are under the $80)?  I think I want a cuffed pair of khakis, so I definitely need an unhemmed option.

484 is extremely slim. If you have ever done a calf raise in your life, they will probably look like a woman's garment.

size down 2 on the urban slims and they are perfect imo. 484 have too much taper and yeah not enough room in the calves

I second this.

I have another question. I have a pair of chinos in Jcrew Urban slim fit 30/32 and they are a tad too slim. How will the 484 fit me in 31/32 you think?

Long time lurker first time poster. J Crew sales rep here.

 

If you've ever touched a weight in your life I'd stay away from the 484s. They can look great but only if you have the frame to pull them off. Like one of the above posters said, they can start to look way too tight way too quickly. I tell everyone in store to stay away from them unless they're built like a twig.

 

Size down one from your reg jean size in urban slims and they should fit like a dream, at least that's what I've found. If USFs don't fit in 30/32 because they're too slim I'd say you'd need at least a 33/32 in the 484s.
