That's pretty mean. I like to think we're better than that over here. It sounds like you might need to get some chinos and have them tailored for your shape.

 

I got my chinos overseas but I'm sure others will chime in shortly with some good advice.

Thanks; many have recommended epaulet for my kind of build but sadly no way of trying them on here since we live in straya :P

Yeah probably gonna have to get them tailored regardless but trying to get best fit possible b4 the tailoring.

Well anyway; I'm looking for a some light brown (khaki-ish) chinos or khakis (what have you) that are good for my body type. My thighs and butt are fairly large as I am a powerlifter and my pants usually tend not to taper well and seem little too roomy below the thighs. I am looking for a place (preferably localish) where good quality but nice fitting chinos lay in Melbourne. P.S. can someone try find me a pair of Wolverine 1000 MILE BOOTS in size 6uk or au/7us (yeah my feet are tiny :P for the cheap$ preferably.
P.S.

There is place in Balmain that sells them locally. Otherwise use an SF store like Cranes.

Or, if you have the spare drawer space, you could roll them up and store them in a spare drawer or two.

I'd probably suggest giving Tailor Store a try for fully MTM chinos in the $60-70 range if I recall. Not a huge loss if they don't work and if they do then you're set for future pairs.

This!

I'm wanting to use these (http://www.hsw.com.au/?product&id_prod=858&id_cat=&id_dept= - not affiliated with Howard Storage; just that's where I've gotten them from) for my ties in a drawer. Could also keep socks paired in there. My GF uses them to separate her tights and underwear. She's got a draw for each, and uses the diamond dividers to keep it organised. It's pretty impressive, and slightly OCD!

I use one of them for socks. I have a spare drawer, so I might use another one for ties too.

I've managed to pick up 3 of these plastic thingos from Opshops for about $1 each - configured a bit like those tie rack ones only a bit better as they are thicker. They hold 18 ties each. I have them doubled up all over the place and also one drawer for rolled up ties.

My mate went on a serious tie buying spree and he got a couple of really thick diameter bathroom stainless steel pipe round racks and installed 4 (properly) on the inside of his wardrobe doors, so when he opens them they are on display. Had to cover them in a bit of foam to stop slippage.

In theory, you should only hang ties up for a day or two to get rid of wrinkles etc, and then roll them up and store on side in a drawer. Mostly though hanging doesn't hurt ties unless they are hung at same spot and never moved.

I'm not sure what you think the 'stereotypical' style forumer is built like - I've met a few and .....................

blahman doesn't represent the 'stereo -typical' hell hes hardly even low fi mono..

I think most people here go online overseas for chinos for many reasons - value and fit and variety.

Tell us what your vitals are waist, thigh etc and what leg opening you are after and someone here will know what suits best. I now mainly use LE for chinos, and their different models are cut differently and different in feel. There is a good selection in USA, and they know how to cater for the - ahem - larger gentleman.

If anyone here posts fatty then they will have their arse kicked. Putting down first time or shy posters - thats not the way it works on this thread.

I've got fat thighs and also have this issue with most pants

Even my Owen and James pants were modelled on "james" rather than me "owen" because most would find my thighs way too roomy.

As fxh said tell us your measurements and someone here can point you in the right direction

Sorry for the thread hyjack, 

 

I'm a law student from newcastle. I'm coming into my final years and need some tips for suits.
- What are acceptable colours for lawyers? I've been told to always stick with black and charcoal, is this reasonable advice?
- What are some good brands for mid range suits ($500 mark, what most lawyers would wear) and shirts? I've lifted weights for years so I'm basically built like a rugby prop. 
- What are some tips you could give a young person looking to build up a wardrobe for the legal industry? I've read the 101 guide but is there anything else not said?
- Finally are there any other good australian style forums/books on suits I could check out for ideas?

Thanks a tonne, look forward to posting on here :)

fwiw - for accessories I have RM Williams everything!
