        Yeah Im in similar weather here in Socal and wouldnt want to wear Alphas if I outside during  the day. I bought GAPs tailored lightweight chinos which feel much much better in warmer weather.

They're pretty thick and stiff, more ideal for fall/winter. The weight of the Gap lived-in is actually a moderate one, a three seasons kind of weight. You may want to look into it.

I bought a pair today and they feel great. Snug but not too tight and no pocket flare at all. Slimmer than Dockers Alpha for sure (which I wanted).


You're welcome buddy. I just bought another pair in the earthy sienna color. They just went on sale again and are darn near free now.

Banana Republic, who'd have thought?

 

 

 

 

The first pair is a seersucker type that I can't even find on the website anymore. The second one is a regular chino fabric in burgundy that is now almost sold out. Both are in the Heritage collection and appear to be well made, with a terrific slim fit that hits right the waist and actually makes my behind look more shaped. Slim from the thigh down, icing on the cake.

 

The Gap and BR are bringing serious chino game this year.

can't even see the hem area and that is the area most people in this forum are interested in. meaning the taper.
post #1716 of 1830

Sorry for the bad quality pictures, I'm stuck in a prison cell... However you can see a clear, albeit incomplete silhouette in the last picture and the taper is as you can imagine from the picture.

 

Will take another shot in all its glory when I'm out of prison.

Anyone have a pair of the Foss Tugger Chinos at Blackbird?: http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Blackbird_Foss_Tugger_Chino_in_Fir_30214.html
post #1718 of 1830
bought these today in the santa monica store: http://www.unionmadegoods.com/Unis_Gio_in_Field_Green_9814.html

i'm 6-2 with long azz legs and a larger ass. unis are the ish! construction is top notch and they feel more like "pants' instead of chinos. slim but not skinny. a really nice tapered look. and btw, they are on sale for $118.00.

run. don't walk!

I'm looking for a pair of slim fit chinos that are expensive and "luxurious"-looking, but are durable enough to be worn daily. I've tried on Slowear's Chinolinos, but they looked like something a 40 year old man would wear to the Bahamas on vacation. I've been wearing J Crew urban slim chinos for years because I like the cut, but they don't wear that well and the material is not ideal. I also have a couple of BB's Milano cut chinos and an old pair from J. Press (looool - these are horrible). I'm currently looking at Margielas or something from Neil Barrett, or something like that.

I guess I want something that's preppy enough to pass off as preppy, but also isn't overwhelmingly preppy. So it has to be "classic" (ie material, or whatever the effervescent quality that makes chinos chinos), but with a fashion cut. Um.

So Epaulet? Incotex? Unis?
post #1721 of 1830
Just buy the margiela
post #1722 of 1830
Is Epaulet actually a viable brand? I find myself frequently really wanting to buy their things, but I don't know enough about them to buy pants from them online, and I don't live in New York so I can't try them on in person. What are Uni's?
post #1723 of 1830

^ you can return them within 14 days. 

post #1724 of 1830
I hate returning packages. Uni's look really nice.

Epaulet products are outstanding, and, imo, far surpass most major retail brands in fit, finish, and cost in comparison to quality. You will not regret trying them.
