Slim fitting chinos / pants - Page 10

yet another example of the subtleties of voice inflection lost through the internetz.

I recently picked up a pair of J. Crew Classic Fit chinos. The legs are definitely in the slimmish category, but the top is awkward and unflattering for skinnier folk without asses. The back rise is over 16", which is way more room than my flat ass needs. The search continues.

I just picked up a pair of Mason's in grey from Barneys on sale at $80. Haven't measured them, but they are probably a tad wider than my incotex.

My RRL chinos that can be seen earlier in this thread have bagged out a lot in the waist. I'm gonna get a pair in black and size down but the tailors at the RL store I go to are going to take these in for me for free. Apparently they'll do free alterations on any item bought at full price, which is awesome.

GAP just emailed me this morning to herald the arrival of a new line of supposedly slimmer khakis. Link: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...scid=538224012 . They are dubbed the "original." Anyone try these? From the photos, they look similar to the J Crew Classic cut.

Yeah I got asked one time ever. I have always forgotten to show my heavily outdated student card since then.

I got this email too, I'll check them out though they will probably fit huge and need to be re-tailored like every other pair of pants I own.

I'm looking for pretty much a khaki colored jean that is thick and can be worn-in, not the lightweight flimsy Jcrew pants or khaki colored slacks. Yoox.com has 17 pages of khakis, better get crackin.

^^ the Crate khakis are exactly that. the material is a vintage material that is really thick and can be worn in, but it's not denim

I work at the gap and I tried these on today. The legs are what gap consider boot cut but I would consider flare, also like most GAP items the price point is way too high.

Yes, I think GAP should cut most regular prices by half.

I agree. I think GAP and BR quality has stagnated at best.

Absolutely, I get 50% off and even with that its only useful for cheap basics like V neck and Shirts. Also Gap Spring '09 can be summed up in one word - PINK I got a quick question: How often do you wash chinos?

people who suggest j.crew essential fit chinos to be slim. for me they weren't and i have 28x30. the waist isn't that bad but everywhere else any top used i look like mchammer.

I tried on the classic (slim fit) J crew ones. I really liked them except for the pockets flared/ballooned out big time. Made them look ridiculous. Anybody else have that problem with these?
