Dry cleaning is pretty rough on clothes too, and I think a lot of the standard dry cleaning services will stain clothes slightly yellow if done too frequently. I'd only dry clean if wool and absolutely necessary. Doing low-spin or no-spin on cold is pretty damned gentle, though, and Woolite is great for keeping color.

After trying on J Crew Urban Fit and Brooks Brother's Milanos chinos, I bought 2 pair of the Milanos. The fabric was much, much richer and more substantial. Worth the extra $10/pair.

Agree. Brooks Brothers actually recommends washing, then hang drying their Milano (slim fit) chinos over dry cleaning to make them last longer.

I have been looking for a pair of good quality chinos in stone color for months... It's frustrating, much more so than jeans. The fit must be perfect, and so must the color; just a little deviation can make the whole thing look wrong. I tried on the J Crew urban slim fit; it looked great at first, then I noticed it was a little iffy around the seat. Put it back. Some pairs I got from MyHabit ended up looking more khaki/tan than stone, so I had to return all of them.

 

I would appreciate it a lot if somebody could recommend me a pair of clean-cut, slim or regular-fitting chinos in stone, preferably one they have had (good) experience with. It it still doesn't work out, I will just go to H&M and get it over with...

^H&M ones stretch out like no other imo...guess that's sorta unavoidable with most chinos but still

Those look relaxed fit, imo.

Rivet chinos are hardly relaxed. Straight if anything, but not relaxed.

Best fitting chinos ever.

If they sell them in stone this season, check out the Unis Gio/Gio Skinny. Terrific fit and very well constructed. Also, if you're willing to wait until August, BB's summer-weight chinos usually go on sale at that time. Their Milano-fit chinos are great for the price (~$30 on sale), and you can even get free tailoring if you buy in-store.

I just ordered a pair of Uniqlo slim flat-front chinos - will compare with my pair of Gio Skinnies when they arrive.

Yes, West-points are slimmer in the thigh.  I have to size up in both, but I Squat.

Not if you have large thighs and a smallish waist. Not at all.

Though, in that case, Epaulet's Rudy fit is perfect.

For the love of god, someone recommend me a pair that comes in 30x34 and isn't $200 (unis) or not available outside US (uniqlo)  worship2.gif
