I specifically called customer support and asked if I was going to need to pay the difference to exchange them and they said it was fine. I'm new here, is this taboo for some reason?

I know not everyone here is a Bonobos fan, but I just got their new slim-straight washed chino and the fit is great. They really slimmed down the leg and opening on these pants (and a further .75 inches in the high/knee) and they fit really well. I still ordered a size down (in this case a 35 instead of my usual 36) and the waist is perfect, just enough room to still accommodate for fabric stretch. Because they have such a great return policy (with free return shipping) I just exchanged my old straight fit for the the new slim fit and paid the difference -- which in my case, was $13. 

 

Overall, awesome new fit. For people who like the fit of the refined-slim fit chino at Lands End Canvas, these even fit better in my opinion.

How's the weight of fabric? Furthermore, where are their pants made?

Thanks

The picture on their website make them look like bell bottoms though... Could you post a fit pic ?

The fabric on their pants is usually light and feels cheapish. They are all made over seas. Bonobos can be had for a steal, but at full price there's nothing compelling me to purchase them. I doubt the pants are tapered. I think they took them in from the thigh and then still straight from the knee down which does give a bell bottom feel. I know because I had a tailor ruin a pair of mine in the same manner frown.gif

You're right I think on two counts -- Yes, their products are probably not a good bargain at full price, but they always have codes that can be found online for at least 20% off. I have never paid full price for any item there. It helps that these codes work on sale items too and can be stacked with groupon type deals that they run throughout the year. While most of their items are made in China, they try to source fabrics from Italy (like some of their wool) and make some of their shirt offerings made here in the United States (e.g., their oxfords and other dress shirts) which are the best fitting OTR shirts I've tried on.

 

For the pants, they are 7.6oz and have a good weight. I think these are pretty much a four-season chino, but probably too heavy for really hot days. They are a little stiff at first I think, but should soften up after wearing and a few cycles in the wash.

 

Here are two fit pics, sorry for the quality and mess -- My sister is the only one with a decent mirror in the apartment. :-P

Thanks! hard to see from the picture but pants only seem to taper because you cuffed them, is that true?

Nah, I had to roll them up! The inseams on bonobos seem to run a little longer than advertised. The leg opening on this pair was 8inch (when laid flat). :-) 

 

I'll try to get some better pictures later.

Anyone have experience with ONLY NYC?

Looks like they generally concern themselves with graphic tees and hats and such. But they also offer a Made in USA chino pant for under 100$, 8oz cotton and no frills.

Are Unis Gio Chinos worth $200 at full retail? I know that their website has sales (currently at $100), but by then my size is gone. I want a pair, but it isn't a do-or-die situation, but in terms of the aesthetics and quality, is it worth the price?

If they have already been washed to account for shrinkage they are perfectly fine. I don't know about the rules here but in men's clothing they would deem that fine as you should learn to embrace your socks. Ditch the black socks while you at it.

So you recommend that even if at full price, we should pull the trigger on a pair of Unis?
