May be Sator will chime in on this with his brilliant insights, but my impression is that baggier dress pants have about as much similarities with classic menswear as slimmer ones. There's no one look that has stayed consistent throughout the last few centuries, and the pendulum keeps swinging back and forth between two sides of the spectrum. The current affinity of the general population (in America) towards the more "relaxed" fits is undoubtedly related the obesity epidemic.




Anyway, let's get back to the original topic. Does Incotex cure cancer?

While the Savane chinos might be considered baggy I don't feel that was about their wool type fabric dress pants which in my opinion have a refined professional tailored style and cut which I have found to hold a tight crease indefinitely. If you were to try a pair on I would be surprised if your mind wasn't changed about the great value that Savane has to offer for a professional business wardrobe.

Do you work for them or something? I just can't believe a 20-40.00 pant can be "refined". Pants are so much more than an ability to hold a crease. It's the tiny details like button stitching, color, drape, and overall quality of the fabric itself.

There is a difference between loose (a-la Hugo Boss' classic looking and excellent James Brown pant) and sloppy to fit in rolls of fat, which many of the american budget suffer from.

At any rate, if you like those pants, go for it. For myself personally, I've never owned anything better looking or more timeless than my Incotex.

Barney's in Chicago has Isaia trousers on sale. The ones I tried on last week were cheaper than Incotex and Zegna. Unfortunately the rise is too damned low for me to wear them.

How do you know teh model on the internet? Like which ones are these?

http://www.shopthefinest.com/Items/k...n%20Pants%2034

I get so confused because I don't want to order some that are not slim or too slim, but I don't know where they are made when I see them on sites.

Do they sell Incotex in Vancouver anywhere? I asked for a store list on the webiste and never heard back. Also, are they long? I'm 6'9 thanks!

I like the fit of GA pants. The rise on Zegna is way too high for me and I would like to give Incotex a try.
