Slim Fit Khaki's/Chino's - Page 118

post #1756 of 1821

I'd rather not use the term 'khaki' unless referring to a color, because it is so misused and confusing. Khaki is a color, not a fabric, much less a kind of pants. I'd rather call them all chinos because that's what their signature twill fabric is called, and then make a distinction between 'casual' chinos and 'dress' chinos based on the characteristics mentioned above.

 

'Dress pants' doesn't hint at the fabric being used, but most of the time it's a plain weave or basket weave cotton, not chinos. And when they are actually chinos, people would call them 'khaki' regardless of the color. Weird.

Can some members give me there perspectives on Wings + Horns chinos. They seem nice.

Are they soft?
Do they get very wrinkled like they are on models?
How do you size for them?

^ Thanks for the tip off. I just noticed the Gio has a skinny model - has anybody had any experience with them? Given that the regular model is pretty slim-fitting, how slim then is the skinny model?

Judging from your BR fit pic they will be painted on you the skinnies that is unless you size up. But if you size up might as well just get gio.

^ what he said...

btw, the gio's are a really nice balance of slim but not skinny. i had to size up.

Thanks :) I'm fairly slim myself, but the slimmest I'll go is those BR chinos. I'm getting the regular model.

Yeah I have one pair in the skinny model. If you're into the super skinny feel I'd say go for it, but I'm kinda small and found them too tight, especially in the knee area when i sat down. Below are the measurements of how the Gio and the Gio Skinny stack up against each other, I hope it helps:

 

 

Regular Gio size 31
Waist: 33
Thigh: 24.5
Knee (14" below crotch): 16.25
Leg opening: 15


Regular Gio size 32
Waist: 34
Thigh: 25
Knee (measured 14" below crotch): 16.5
Leg Opening: 15.25
Front Rise: 10.25
Back Rise: 15

Regular Gio size 33
Waist: 35
Thigh: 25.5
Knee: 17
Leg Opening: 15.5
Front Rise: 10.75
Back Rise: 15.25
 
Skinny Gio size 31:
Waist (measured around waistband - outside of fabric): 33
Thigh (measured 1" below crotch seam): 24.25
Knee (measured 14" below crotch seam): 15.75
Leg opening: 14.5

Skinny Gio size 32:
Waist (measured around waistband - outside of fabric): 34
Thigh (measured 1" below crotch seam): 24.5
Knee (measured 14" below crotch seam): 16
Leg opening: 14.5

Skinny Gio size 33:
Waist (measured around waistband - outside of fabric): 35
Thigh (measured 1" below crotch seam): 25
Knee (measured 14" below crotch seam): 16.5
Leg opening: 15

Thanks a lot! It's crazy they make a whole new 'skinny' model with 0.5" chopped off from each measurement.

post #1767 of 1821

Yeah it really is! But when you wear them the difference is definitely worth them making a clear distinction, those pants are tight (and not in the post 90's hip-hop sort of way).
