Hi All,

 

I'm completely new to this kind of community, and am trying to wear more fitting clothes.

 

Here is my first rookie question (hopefully you'll be easy one me).

 

How should slim and tight fitting chinos/pants fit on someone? I just purchased a few 31x32 JCrew slim chinos, and I'm feeling a bit out of my element.  The waist and length are fine, the width of the pant knee down is fine, but from the knee up I feel restricted.  I'm unsure if this is because I'm not used to this or is because these are actually too skinny for my legs.  I've read a few posts where people are saying Jcrew slim chinos are actually wider around the thigh than other slim brands.

 

Would a picture lead me to better answers?

I found the 511's to be a bit slimmer than the alpha khakis, both at the thighs and around the ankles.

Anyone tried the Levis Made & Crafted Spoke Chinos yet?

The test is when you're sitting down. You want to avoid the mangina effect. I think you know what I mean.

Does anyone have any info on the differences? Which is slimmer? Etc. 

alpha khakis seems a bit more casual with seams they use whereas the rugby chinos just seem alot dressier. i own both and wear them for different occasions.

Do the dockers Alpha chinos only come in a 30 or 32 inch inseam? The fit on me is great, but the inseam is too short (I cuff my pants, always).

They come in 32" lengths also, I have two 30x32 size pairs.

I'm killing myself here trying to find a pair of slim chinos at a, to me, accessible price ($60ish $70 at most), so I need some reviews. Also, if anyone can sell me used pairs, that would be great, I'm looking for two pairs of 32" slim fitting chinos. If you can recommend any pants I should look into besides the one I list below, within that price range, that would be great, too

 

I'd really appreciate it if someone can give my any info with regards to fit and material on any of the following:

 

- Banana Republic Emerson fit

 

- SONOMA life + style Vintage Twill Slim-Fit Flat-Front (are these actually chinos or some other fabric??)

 

- Van Heusen Metro Chino Slim-Fit No-Iron Extender Flat-Front Pants

 

- Axist

 

- Haggar

 

- Marc Anthony

 

 

 

 

I'm looking for info on these points (if you can comment on any one of them it would be helpful):

 

- is the material heavy enough for winter

 

- does it have a coin pocket or any gimmicky pockets beside the regular four?

 

- is it a regular rise or short or something third

 

- fit - Is it slim throughout the leg or only in tight (that makes the hem look like bell bottoms) is the fit slimmer or roomier than these (Kensington, I hope you don't mind me using your pictures):

Has anyone had any experience with the Apolis Standard Issue Civilian Chino?

 

They look really good, but I'm curious how they are in quality/fit to some of the UNIS or W+H offerings, and haven't had any luck finding them in person.

hey guys i'm going to tanzania for 8 weeks to teach in villages and i have to wear chinos/khakis when i'm teaching. i was wondering what kind of slim fit chinos you guys recommend i buy. the weather is going to be in the 70s/80s so i would need something lightweight and somewhat durable because it'll be getting dirty. i was looking at the j crew essex chino because it seems lightweight, durable, of good quality, and a good fit. anything in the range of $100 is fine with me. thanks!
