I went into David Jones today and tried on a dozen pairs of chinos. Even the ones that looked way too casual and I was never going to buy because of that. The best ones I found regarding a fit were these Ted Baker ones however the only color they had in a 32 and its not tan enough and just not the colour im looking for.
I also tried on a pair of Hugo Boss slim chinos in a 30 and if they had a 32 i reckon they would've been perfect...
The search continues... save me. once I find the chinos, I can then move into the rest.
Try Uniqlo and MJ Bale for chinos. I like my tobacco MJB chinos. I think Brooks Brothers may also stock a tan chino.
