Anyone know of a good alternative to Bonobos Oxleys for colorful Oxford cloth pants?

I'm looking for Oxford cloth pants (or some equivalently dressy material) with a very slim fit (Bonobos Oxleys Slim are about the baggiest I'd be willing to stomach, I really wish Bonobos offered a genuinely slim fit variety) in a variety of colors (ideally, more color selections than Bonobos has, but I'd settle for a range that's roughly comparable). Unfortunately, Bonobos only sells them in the spring and summer months, since they're summer weight.

Just about the only option I've found so far is the American Apparel Welt Oxford Pant, which looks good online (http://store.americanapparel.net/product/?productId=rsa0406) but is weirdly horrible in person (a waist that goes almost two inches higher than normal dress pants and a very elongated crotch -- they were up to my bellybutton, not a fan.)

J Crew's Bowery Slim in Oxford Cloth is nowhere near as slim as I'd prefer (two levels of bagginess higher than their 484s, which fit well), though other than that they're quite nice. (They also don't sell my size, 28x28, but I can't really hold that against them) http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/pantsbyfit/boweryslim/PRDOVR~63470/63470.jsp?TCode=GGBS00006_99102999715

Perhaps those options will suit someone else with similar needs. As for me, the hunt continues...

I've heard from people on other forums that Incotex Slowear might be an option. Still: the hunt continues...
