Short answer: It's Bonobos pants, only shorter.

Longer answer:

I have last year's offerings of their shorts, which are currently unavailable at their site. They fit just like the pants. I can't comment on their current offerings as they move their manufacturing about (once USA, then China and India, etc.).

Bonobos has issues with their sizing. If you read the reviews on the site of their various pants, a common complaint is the sizing is inconsistent from model to model and fabric to fabric. I have some pairs which require a belt to not fall off and some that stay up just fine on their own. Yet, they're all labeled the same waist size.

If you like the Bonobos fit and want the same thing is shorts, they're a good deal if they're on sale. Keep in mind you may find sizing irregularities, which Bonobos will fix with a quick return and refund, which they make very easy.

I recently purchased a pair of their washed chinos. I really like the fit. It fits well through the waist/seat and is decently roomy in the thighs. I prefer these over the BB Milano and Incotex/Mabitex. The cut just seems to work better for someone like me (runner/swimmer i.e. small waist but relatively large legs).

Looks like Bonobos will be offered at Nordstroms now. Bonobos will receive cash to a tune of $16.4 million.

Not only that, I just heard from someone in the company that they're opening an actual store on Newbury St. (Boston) next month.

Poor quality to price ratio. At least they'll finally be available in the mall where they belong.

$60-$90 (depending on sale price) is too much for the quality they offer? pray tell, what do you pay for your casual slacks and how long do they last in comparison?

VLSI has a valid point. I really do enjoy the cut and fit of just about everything I've ordered from Bonobos, but they are still new to fashion design and it does show in little ways. I've had issues with stitching coming loose around pockets, or certain slacks requiring more frequent ironing than other types I own. The good thing is that if you ever have any kind of issue with an item you bought from Bonobos, they'll take it back. I've taken full advantage of this policy.

 

On the plus side, I've got a medium-sized figure and their slacks flatter me better than almost anything else in that price range. They also make playful use of color pops, which seem to get their fair share of complements.

 

It can't hurt to have two or three in your collection, unless you're baller status. Then you probably shouldn't be wasting your time reading this anyways.

Anyone know how the travel denim straight legs fit?
 

post #59 of 64

I've got a medium build and they fit me closely but not overly tight. They've got a bit of stretch and flatter my ass pretty nicely. Overall I'm a fan. Not a bad cut at all.

Necropost, but relevant.

 

Now that Bonobos has been picked up as a brand by Nordstroms, has opinion changed of the pants makers here on SF? I have purchased a few of their Travel Jeans in non-outlandish colors, and they do seem to accentuate the rear.

 

If I had to point a fit issue for me, I believe the thigh circumference is too small, all the pants are very, very snug on me. (Related though, I do lift weights and marathon run)
