    I'd like to post a fit picture of light weight urban slim fit chino 29*32

    the hem is really really slim, only 7", thigh and hip are about right, if I go up one size, thigh and hip might be too loose. not sure if I want to keep and hem them or just return them.




    the thigh area looks a little loose

    is that area not slim either?

    I'll think about it, ironically I'm a 12 too. How's the suede? I'm afraid of fucking it up in the rain or just being careless.

    seems pretty nice. honestly, I just have a suede eraser that I use on all my suede

    I picked up the cotton-linen camp shirt over the weekend in-store. It was reduced down to $49 plus 20% off. It's pretty nice with an almost chambray-esqe hand to it. It's at the tailors at the moment getting tapered and the sleeves slimmed down.

    heh i just bought that too[​IMG]

    Is that your regular size. They look too big in the thighs. I'd definitely hem them or return. A roll like that doesn't look good on pants like that.

    I just bought some navy hook and bar navy chino's and these things are awesome. They fit perfectly and are extremely soft and comfortable. I highly recommend them.

    I am APC NS 28, I definitely cannot go down more because the waist is already tight and thigh area fit pretty slim. It is only around 1" larger than my thigh circumstance, don't know why the picture makes them look so loose.

    Down from the knees they are really really slim. My calf are not big and they fit close to being tight, and that is the reason I am thinking to return them.

    Do Jcrew chinos shrink and get slimmer after wash or do they stretch with wear?

    just want to share some size info (29*32) I got from Jcrew rep:

    urban slim light weight: waist, hip, thigh, hem: 31.5 39.5 24.25 14
    urban slim broken in: 31.25, 39.25, 24, 14.75

    so they fit pretty similar but broken in has larger hem and slightly slimmer thigh and hip, probably not noticeable.

    Can't speak for the light-weight material, but the broken-in pair will shrink if you dry it in the dryer. Mine do, but then stretch out again.

    that's what happened to my classic broken in chino.

    I kinda hope the waist will stretch a little bit and hem does not shrink. I am 31 true waist and it is a little light. I have to say urban slim fit is a awkward fit, but I am still tempted to try a 29w urban slim broken in.
