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

post #1816 of 1830

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.

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?

Super late reply but you should definitely size up in the waist. I sized up 1 in the waist, which fit great as they run super skinny - but after a warm wash, they shrunk quite a bit. 

On another note, does anyone here have experience with W+H Westpoint Chinos? Would sizing up 1 in the waist be too baggy of a fit? I found a pair for a steal of a price but a little worried that they'll be too big.

nvm, tired them on at the store. on my gosh, they are huge, not slim at all. i think the leg opening might have been 8+ inches.

Does anyone have any info on the fit/quality of the "just a cheap shirt"/J.A.C.H.S. Dixon Chino? I haven't been able to find any information. A comparison with j.crew's 484 fit would be especially helpful, as these pants have always fit me well.  I heard that they're supposed to be "slim fitting", but I've begun to realize that this could mean almost anything from a genuinely slim fit to a way of flattering those for whom slim fitting clothes are not :paranoia:

I am wondering if anyone can help me remember a brand that I forgot about. I read about what I think was a Korean brand who made slim, almost Italianate chinos (think along the likes of Incotex or PT01). Does anyone know what brand I would be talking about? I want to say they were about $125 or so. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

In the spring, I bought a pair of Banana Republic for around $10. Made in Egypt. They've held up well so far.

I wouldn't have paid full price, but BR slim fit chinos are decent when on sale or when found at outlets.

Aiden chinos by BR.

 

btw, anyone know where to get tapered chinos?

Just snagged a couple Brooks Brothers slim-fit chinos for $60 (free shipping and 20% off until midnight). Don't have any experience with them, but the price was too good to pass up. If I don't l like them I can always return them free of charge.

How are those Brooks Brother's slim fit chinos working out for you? Curious about the fabric and how the fit compares to other chinos.
