UNIS, any info on this brand? - Page 18

post #256 of 319
Any shorter/stockier guys wearing the Gios? Interested in a pair, but not sure they'll work for me. I'm 5'7" around 158#, built but not fat. Pretty big thighs. Are they just going to be too skinny for me?

She's changed the fit to be more forgiving in the thighs and a higher rise. I'm about 5'10" 165lbs and they fit me perfectly. I'm a true size 32.

Hope this helps.

Is anyone with experience in W+H Westpoint chino sizing able to speak to their sizing in Unis pants? I'm particularly interested in the Davis chino, as well the Gio.
post #259 of 319

I tried on both the Gio and the Westpoint recently. I was a 30 in the gio for the waist, a 29 in w+h for the waist; however, the w+h were too tight on my thighs. Extrapolate from that what you can. w+h was definitely slimmer in the thigh.

I;m a 30 in both GIO and Westpoint and I concur the W+H is slimmer.

Anyone try the Gio's recently?

I haven't bought a pair in almost 2 years, was in the LA store this weekend, tried on both the Gio and Gio Skinny, they definetly trimed down the cut on the Gio. I prefer the new Gio cut to previous version. Both the Gio and Skinny fit comparable in the top block, skinny is naturally a bit slimmer in the thigh, and has a much greater taper below the knee. Truthfully though, the fit for me was pretty similar between the two.

Going to go back and pick up the Gio in Army.

No experience with the older cuts, but picked up two pairs of Skinny's in the last month or so. Favorite pair of pants by far. I normally take a 31-32 in other brands - I would say the Skinny is definitely vanity sized. I've been getting them in a 30.

Are the Gios worth the money when you can get GAP Lived-in chinos for less than 20 bucks? Love my GAPs.

i haven't worn GAP chinos in years but from what i remember the fit was pretty awful. for me, gios are worth the price tag because the fit is perfect for a guy like me (5'8 150).

They've been redesigned. I was insanely hesitant to purchase them, but took the plunge when I saw them on sale with +35% off coupon. Only thing from GAP I own currently.

Gio's are expensive yes, everyone saw that deabte going back and forth between Eunice Lee and some guy posting on Well-Spent.com

Are they worth the $150 more than the GAP pants? Probably not. They are made here in L.A., better fit for most comapred to GAP, I would imagine better material too. At the end of the day it is your call. I personally am a big fan of UNIS.

I'm a big fan of Unis, however, I don't think the fit or materials is better on the Gios compared to GAP. Working in garment district in NYC I see that "Made in USA" means being made by the hands of illegal Chinese immigrants in NYC. I honestly think their stuff is overpriced and basically the APC of the US. Still, a fan of her designs.

I agree. I owned a couple of pairs. The fit is nice but other than that, they are pretty overrated. Nothing special really. At that price point you can get chinos with better construction, fit, and material (I.e. W+H, Left Field, etc.)

I agree. W+H and Left Field are good examples. Most Gio's go on sale, so unless you must have them, it's usually smart to sleep on it and wait for the sale. That being said I am loving the Army Gio's right now, and want to break my own rule and buy'em.

Thats a good point. Usually Gios go on sale twice a year ranging from 30-50% off. At that price point they're a good deal. That being said, W+H retailers also have 30-50% sales on their chinos. I don't believe Left Field goes on sale often, and if they its probably not much.
