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 =(
Agree, the rise is too damn low. They are supposed to be BB's slimmest pants so I guess there isn't a milano with high rise? It sucks because they're great on sale as you said.
I''ve an inseam length of "30, and I was thinking on doing this with my next pair of chino:
Buy a chino with "32 length, then I can cuff it up when needed, but also hide the fabric on the inside for the uncuffed style.
Disappointed with the color on the Alpha Khakis. The "New British" color was much darker than I was expecting and the "Safari Beige" looks more like light grey. Fit was good though. Edited by Kensington - 2/23/12 at 5:00pm
Others have complained about the Milano fit from Brooks Brothers, but I just kopped a pair of the garment dyed chinos and found them to be excellent. Good quality material and the fit was spot on for me -- low rise and all. Overpriced @ full price but you can probably get them w/ a coupon. They're not quite as tight as the Dockers Alphas.
