If you're not into the break, just take them in at the bottom to get rid of the slight bootcut and stack them.

would you take them in to a straight leg, or taper more?

Depends on how tight on top. If they fit skinny on top make them skinny on the bottom. If you have some room go straight leg. I think the leg opening is somewhere in the 9-9.5" range. I would take them in a couple inches.

The leg opening is definitely too large for them to look good stacked, IMO. I'm going to hem them for sure, the only question is whether to leave a break or not. Looks like there will still be a very slight bootcut after I hem.

Urban Outfitter's brand BDG makes two cuts "Straight" and "Skinny". Theyre medium-heavy weight for $49. I was about to pick up the Straight pair, but the seat is really baggy with a full-rise, not at all fitted in that area which is annoying. The Skinny was more fitted in the seat, but the taper below the knee was too narrow for my liking.

post #71 of 95
Nothing at all, which I why I meant to post that in the Slim Khakis thread...

yea there was a james version but they only made enough for their overseas vendors (primarily Japan) and not enough fabric for any local stock, iirc Not long after buying them, I took my Hamilton chinos and tapered the leg from knee to hem (7.5" across bottom, cut down from 8.5)....they're seriously one of my fave pants and probably wear them a couple times a week nowadays
