Hi.  Does anybody know where I can find a pair of the Dockers Alpha in dark pebble size 32x32 on the cheap (whether in store or online)?

Anyone have a pair of the Club Monaco slim-fit "Davis" chinos? I'm just wondering how slim they actually are.

I've tried them on, and they're very slim fitting.

I have two pairs in navy and grey. Picked them up in store when they were doing a sale discount for college students. They're pretty slim fitting as far as chinos go. Pulled a pair out of the laundry and took two photos just so you can see. I'm 5'10 150# and sorta lanky.

For the record: My Alpha Khakis fit very well (slim throughout the leg) and didn't shrink much, if at all, in the wash.

Also, they are vanity-sized; size down 1 or 2.

Yes they are vanity sized but most clothing is. They run 2" larger than tagged. My size 31x32 for example has about a 33" waist.

So I am a big fan of how I look in slim fit chinos, and wear them every day for work.  I am in a very casual university environment.  I am hoping I can hear some experiences from others regarding the best socks to wear with these types of pants.  Before I began wearing slim-fit pants, I had moved to over-the-calf socks so that they don't have trouble slipping down, and now almost all of my socks are OTC.  Now my problem is the legs of the slim-fit chinos don't seem to be able to glide against the socks very well.  So every time I stand up, I have to bend down and manually pull my pant legs down over my shoes.  When I sit down, I have to tug at the calves of my pants to get them to let go of the socks.baldy[1].gif  Should I just go back to regular height socks, or is there something else I can do that I'm not thinking of?  Does everyone have this problem and do they just put up with it?

Maybe your chinos are a little too slim?

That doesn't happen to me that often

Maybe you're just preoccupied with the break? Embrace the highwater! As the pants get skinner, less and less break looks ok.

It has slightly do do with the weight of the trousers and the material. For example, wool-on-cotton (when the pants are wool and the socks are cotton) is the worst for this. Try some wool socks. Also, you could try some static spray, and some have even reported mild success with cooking spray. Others have had their pants fully lined to increase the friction between the lining and the sock. A last resort (this is what I do) is just to either suck it up or embrace the below-the-calf sock.

Thanks for the opinions!  I am happy with the fit of the pants and the break.  They are cotton chinos (Banana Republic Emerson's), and they taper down quite a bit.  They are fine with below the calf socks, so I know they fit fine.  The problem is, I have embraced the idea of over the calf socks for their obvious benefits of not slipping down and looking sloppy.  It sounds like I may just have to do what cuponoodles said and re-embrace the below the calf socks.  plain.gif

Anybody have good recommendations for a nice slim chino in the oxblood "color of the season"? Looking to spend at most $50.

Those in Canada, where are you getting your odd sized Dockers Alpha khakis from? I've only seen them at the Bay and only in even sizes. Annoying!
