Incotex pants fit

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Quick question on Incotext pants fit. Would you say that their sizing is true to size? Or do you need to size up, or down when wearing Incotex?

We don't have this brand where I am from.

Thanks!

The sizing is true to size, even though Incotex are quite slim fitted.

Thanks for your quick response.

I guess I need to confirm another thing, what is true to size?

For example, for European shirt brands purchased in Europe, I am a 41. Whereas for European shirts purchased in the USA, I am a 39. So when you say the fit TTS, you are referring to a European Sizing, or the more flattering USA sizing for their pants?

There isn't one cut of Incotex pants. Their Comfortchinos (usually with elastane) are very slim, while their Chinolino (cotton/linen mix) are a more "classic" fit, in terms of their flat front pants (though there are others–I've heard of a Roma fit, but haven't seen it before). Their pleated pants are maybe even cut on the generous side.

Depending on where you get them from, I'd definitely recommend asking for detailed measurements: actual waist, rise, thigh, and hem.

In terms of EU to American sizing, I think they're pretty true to most conversion charts I've seen, ie 48IT(EU, as well, right?) = 32US = 34 inches at the actual waist of the pants.

They usually run slim (lower rise, skinnier seat, waist, thigh, knee), so if that description doesn't fit your lower body (i.e. you have an athletic lower body with larger butt, thigh, etc.), you might want to size up.

Incotex sizing are all over the place.

Made for US markets are usually loose,big

European markets pants are slimmer.

You either need to try them on or get measurements.

So which ones are just slim cotton with no linen? Looking for some places to cop from.

I'd like to know where to find the schnozzberries and unicorns, too.

Since Daffy's closed, I haven't seen them on eBay whatsoever – not that they're not there, just that I haven't seen them. Mr. Porter, however, has stock at retail prices:

I would say that they're nice pants, but are in no way worth $400. Howard Yount and Epaulet both offer a better value at retail.

I have Milan Fit Incotex. It said w28 and they are actual 28 inches. They are very slim fit. Most trousers run 2 inches larger than their label. But these are True TTS . They are probably the best trousers available on the market. Get a pair and you will know why.
**They comes with 2 fabric cords could anyone confirm what are they for ? **

Are these two brown strips of clothes that are tucked in the back pocket?

If yes, they are meant for the inner bottom of the hem line, to prevent chaffing from shoes.

I know there are a bunch of different models, but I've found any of the slim/normal models run true to size. Ie I have a 30 inch waist and bought a 30, whereas for normal vanity sized pants I buy a '28'

Yes they were at the back pocket. Lol. I thought they were to hang dry pants . rotflmao.gif Do you attach them on your pants ? I think they would look more formal without them. These may make them look somewhat bulky.

+1. These guys don't muck around with sizing. I wish these were not so expensive.

Those are strips of hem binding for the hem at the lower leg. It's used to protect the hem from wearing out, and for reinforcement.. They are sewn on to the raw edge, that edge is turned up and a hem stitch applied.

They can also be used for short trousers that need an extra 1/4" or so in order to turn out long enough.

Thanks for explanation. But if you have cuff on pants then you cant really use them ?
