    Overall they look very similar. The pair on the Context site look more brown, so I was curious. http://www.contextclothing.com/coming-rrl.php I can't tell if it is just the photos, or they are indeed a different color. And the cuffs. At first glance, I didn't even notice them. I generally never cuff, but they look pretty good. Do you always cuff?

    with the Officer Chino, yes. The inseam is just too long for my taste.

    I like the tapered look so I fold my cuff for a slimmer leg opening. Otherwise, the leg opening almost looks like a bootcut

    Is that just a pin keeping your fold in place? Looks like a staple....

    For those who havn't handled these; the material is something else! I expected it to be nice, but I was truly surprised when I pulled them out of the box and felt their heft. Although they're under 11 oz., to me they feel every bit as heavy and durable as 12 oz. denim. And the color is really unique in person. Definitely worth the $$$.

    ugh, that sucks. Good you ordered them early in the month though. After all the news about the chinos being sold out company wide, I was starting to worry that this contest wouldn't happen at all.

    Very cool of you to do that. Living in AU means I too often miss out on auctions due to sellers not wanting the hassle of filling in a customs form.
