Slim Fit Khaki's/Chino's - Page 122

post #1816 of 1821

Great thread.

 

Last night, after seeing the suggestion here, I picked up a couple of Lived-in Slim Chinos on sale at Gap. They are very soft, nice medium weight, and they did a great job on achieving a believable broken-in feel. The fit seems good but I am not the best gauge... at 5'5", I typically have to get all pants tailored so that they fit proportionally. To me, they seem a bit too casual to try to dress up more than just a little bit but they would probably work for casual Fridays at my office when I don't feel like wearing jeans. All in all, I think I am going to love them.   

 

I've had some H&M slim chinos for about a year. I don't know how they compare to the current seasons offerings but they fit pretty slim (kind of like 511 Levis). The quality seems decent - they haven't fallen apart or anything - it's just that the fabric doesn't appear to be anything special and they are pretty lightweight. Again, I don't think I could dress these up either. These have been my go-to lightweight basic chino that I wear with boat shoes in warmer weather.

 

Based on suggestions from this thread, I'm planning on trying some Unis Gio and Brooks Brothers soon. Then, I'll have a nice spectrum for comparison. I assume that either of those might have the potential to be dressed up a bit more.

Anyone know how to size on Dickies slim skinny fit twill pants? Sale at a Target..read mixed reviews saying they shrink after wash and the opposite saying they stretch. Can anyone help me out?

Also try H&M. They have some nice skinny khaki, navy and black chinos. They're also kind of dual use.

If you want true skinny fit, try Tilly's selection of stretch skater-douche in skinny. I bought a black and khaki pair that are tolerable (no crazy back pocket patterns) and are great for very casual wear.

 

Went and picked up 2 more pairs of the Hawkings McGill chinos from UO.  They were $49.  Can't beat that.  They fit perfectly!  I now have 2 pairs in slate, 1 in blue and one in black.  They're one of my favorites!

Gap's lightweight slim pants are worth checking out, especially if they're running a 40% off promo.  As long as you order the right size, the pants won't pool like they do in the pictures online.

I'm looking for some good business chinos.

 

Incotex seem like really popular chinos but are really expensive. If I could find discounted Incotex, I'd try them. I like unis, but their 38 is a tad too tight on me and they don't seem to make larger. Any suggestions on comparable quality chinos?
