Do you think these will be comfortable around the leg? The worst thing that could happen is that the chinos tightens around the leg when I sit down.

I have no way to try them on, since I live in Europe and need to use a proxy for getting them, smile.gif

Yep, have to say I really like mine as well!

I just got some of the alpha khakis (~$50 online). They are pretty nice for the price, and I like the weight. The fit is slim, but not too slim, and not too tapered. They fit like the levis 514.

 

I also ordered some of the Made in The States chinos (~$55 online), and I have to say, I am not very impressed. The fabric is thin (I prefer thicker), and they do not seem very special for something with an original price of $200. Everywhere they say, "Made in the USA," the claim is amended with "of imported fabric." They are constructed a little better than the Alphas (not more durably, just a little more complexly), but I would rather have the thicker fabric, and the Alphas are less tapered. I might keep this pair for spring just because they are decently priced, and not bad, but if they were any more expensive, I'd send them back right away.

Has anyone had luck with the"d enim washed chinos" from The Gap? Saw them last night but only as I was walking past the store so I didn't get a chance to really get a feel for them...thanks

if i remember right those fit like the slim fit jeans, not the 484, the regular slim ...

 

im wearing the broken in relaxed fit today .. a little baggy for most, but im a 36x30 in jcrew (although im close to a 34) ... i try to be more comfortable at work ...

 

i want to get the urban slims for summer casual, maybe in a clay color and khaki .. but im also looking into the dockers because of the price, availability, although the D1s were just a hair too slim for me and TOO red ..

 

also, i should say i get my jcrew at the outlet, usually around $35 a pair :)

With regards to Dockers, are there two different D1 fits? I've seen D1 described as tapered and straight fit, but I assume all Alphas are tapered?

Reason I ask is because the Alpha just doesn't work for me. My legs are too long and my feet are too god damned big for the tapered. I'm looking for a similar fit from the top block to knee, with a 8-8.5" hem instead of the 7.5' hem.

I've heard that there is some inconsistency in measurements across different colors. Any truth to this?

From pictures the Urban slim seems less slim than the 484, but not as baggy as the essential chinos in regular fit, so I might buy one of both in different colors.

yeah, the 484 is the slimmest

 

regarding Dockers, the D1s were reallly slim on me .. but i didnt size up as recomended either, so that may be the issue. .

I think so, but I can't really help. Much like your pants, the (British Khaki) Alpha chinos I ordered at about 15"1/4 at the cuff, the Made in the States are 15," which makes no sense, because on the website, if you click the "fit info," they are all (D1s) advertised as an 18" opening. This makes me think that somewhere there must be a true to advertizement pant, but I don't know where... Those measurements are from a 32x34, and I think they look decent with size 14 feet, but barely. A lot depends on the shoe.

I ordered a few pairs and love the material. It is soft and the slim fit is perfect. Not too slim and are very comfortable, I just need to get mine shortened. I am going to roll them for now.

I tried them on the other day. The material is really soft, so I think they're pretty good for spring and summer wear, not so much for the winter. Because the cotton is so soft, they have a slouchier look and feel than other slim khakis I've got; material seems thinner than the Dockers I've got, but again, that's fine for summer pants. The thighs are slim, not skinny, and if I recall the legs go straight down without much taper. They struck me as a tad more relaxed than most of the D1 Dockers I have (there's so much variability in Docker sizes) but it's still a nice fit, especially if you have larger thighs. Those with chicken legs might find them on the baggy side, but I like them as is.

i just picked up a pair. the rise is so low and tight in my crotch area that i feel like my balls are about to explode. this is disappointing, since the material feels nice and the price was great on sale =(

Cool, I will go check them out and see how they fit. Thanks for the info!
