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.

Nevermind.

How does Epaulet compare to Unis? I have heard nothing but great reviews for both. yet there is a substantial difference between their price points so I wonder what's the difference in quality, cut,  and detailing.

if your going to go into this range buy the unis wait for a sale if you have to. i have two pairs of epaulet chino's one i'm trying to sell and the other one i'm about to. i've had them for at least 3 years now and i rarely wore either of them reason for selling. it'll be slim when its new and crisp but once its broken in some its like ffffuuuu.gif well the lower leg area for sure.

the wings + horns on the other hand i've worn them plenty since i bought them back in 2008. i have two pairs of wings + horns from back in 2008 still wear up to this very day.

Will the unis web store drop further in price? Looking to grab one at 100-120

I wouldnt count on it. I picked up the last 5 pairs of Unis Gios I own (moss, navy, grey, oxblood, brown) on eBay for about 90 bucks per. All in pretty much new condition. Just look there if you have no qualms with buying clothes from other people instead of from the store.

i am looking to update my chino wardrobe with some slimmer, modern fits. For reference, I have been wearing chinos from Loro Piana, RLPL, and Cucinelli (all purchased at large discounts). The quality on these is excellent. They are fine for business casual days at work. But I would like something younger, slimmer, modern for casual wear.

I have started with a couple of pairs of chinos from Epaulet (Rudy model). I find them to be OK, middle of the road, nothing great. The fit is slimmer than that of the brands mentioned above, but I don't love the cut. The quality of the fabric is nothing special, but I guess it is unfair to compare Epaulet with Loro Piana or RLPL in this regard. I have ordered a Walt model to see if that is better. I have yet to try their Rivet chinos.

I have also recently purchased a pair of Unis Gios. I have to get them hemmed, but so far I like the cut when I tried them on. Slimmer than the Epaulet Rudy and the fabric seems a bit nicer.

Other brands I am considering are: Band of Outsiders and Incotex (Slowear) Slacks (the trim line). Does anyone hear have any experience or thoughts on either of these labels? BoO are a bit more expensive than Unis. Incotex Slacks are even more expensive, with a full retail of ~$385. The Incotex are made in Romania so I am not sure why they are that expensive.

I am willing to invest in quality. Any thoughts/recommendations are appreciated.

Neither of those criteria apply to me, but I enjoy BR Emersons regardless.

i agree. Most underrated chino and one of the best. Though i am inbetween sizes 30x30 and 29x30. There r sizing inconsistencies. Also my emerson got larger i think after wear. I hate that. Does that happen? Or did i buy the wrong size cuz BR sizing is inconsistent. Painin the ass. I have 2 always buy 2 pairs and return 1.

I have been victim of sizing inconsistencies as well.  I haven't had any seem to get larger after wear, however.  I have bought some under the assumption that I knew my size, only to have to return them for a different one, so I do have more than one size in my closet.

fuck i must have bought the wrong size and i wore it. Now only is there a size inconsistency among the emersons but also the colors as well!!!! Pisses me off. BR has the potential to be one of the best but they fuck themselves up like this.

Can't argue there.  Luckily, they have always stood behind the product for me, and exchanged them.  They took back a pair of worn pants (with no tags or receipt) from me after having such an experience.

Since you work in the office, I'm not sure if these are formal enough but try:

 

For a slim/skinny fit try Wings + Horns Westpoint and United Stock Dry Goods Chino. For a slim fit try Left Field Miner Chino. Note that these are heavier twill chinos.
