Slim Fit Khaki's/Chino's - Page 98

Does anyone have J Crew chinos in urban slim fit? Would you be so kind as to post a picture so I can see how slim the fit is?
I've noticed that there are various kinds of chino material and I'm curious whether there's a name for the various types. For ex. the difference between these pictures
Well, the second picture may not even be chinos, but there are chinos that have that kind of texture and are obviously different from the first picture.
Can someone tell me which category Dockers fall into? Are there names for these different types?

I did some searching around and apparently there's a cloth called cramerton or polished cotton (if they are indeed the same thing), is that the kind that's in the first picture? What is the other type called, canvas?
How many types of fabric are chinos made in?

From personal experience ...
Fairly high rise:
Dockers Soft Khakis D1
Lands End Canvas
J.Crew Classic Fit
Dockers Alpha Khakis
Uniqlo Antique Vintage Chinos
Levi's 511 or 514 khakis
My roommate got some and I tried them on. Size 31 fits me perfectly and the material is perfect for summer. Construction is great. Almost the perfect summer chino (or if you live in a semi-tropical climate, three-season chino).
