    I'm not sure if this is an option, but steaming helps in regards to this. It's what you would use for a suit, but should work for cotton pants as well.

    Or press on a very low heat setting using a press cloth. What material are they? I mean cotton is just cotton.

    It said 98% cotton and 2% something else (not sure, I'm wearing them and am at work so I can't check.

    In jail we would lay our [insert item to be pressed] between the layers of out mattresses the night before. Two nights if you were going to see the judge the next day.

    It's probably elastine, or an equivalent elastic fiber.

    Hand washing should be fine. I ignore dry clean only tags on wool sweaters and handwash. Sometimes I run 'em in gentle cycle in a bag and hang dry. #2- See if any of these are on there: http://www.textileaffairs.com/c-common.htm But really, chinos should be machine wash warm/ machine dry. The whole point is that they're fairly rugged and low maintenance. If they fail that test, then the maker needs a kick in the ass.

    Thanks.

    In regards to #2, I realized that it does have a sign not to iron on there and it also said to dry clean only (I might need to get my eyes checked).
    I'm a little hesitant to machine wash clothes I like, so I may just hand wash those also.

    Fit should be your first concern/objective. Then if you like the syle and the cut go for it.

    match at least one of the colors of your socks to your pants. dont match to your shoes or you'll look funny. and yeah drop is difference from chest to waist usually.

    can i post a question here..i am new haha anyway here it goes and this ones long... sorry


    just for some background info I am 26, a guy, and I like to dress nice. I wear dress shirts and polo's but never suits or sports jackets(though i want one). I have nice fitting khaki's(sort of) but I am finding it impossible to find any nice fitting jeans. Usually the problem I have is my hips are a lot bigger than my waist and for pants to fit me right they are either to large around my waist, too tight around my thighs or they are too baggy. I weigh 162 lbs and am 5'10". In addition to jeans I would also like help with finding fitting tops... I know this is a denim forum but i am posting my upper body measurements if anyone wants to give me a suggestion for nice fitting tops that would be great. The only shirts I can find that really fit well are Abercrombie and Fitch "Muscle" cut shirts because they have a nice drop from chest/shoulder to waist. I don't want to wear abercrombie and Fitch forever haha please help!!

    My measurements are as follows:
    Waist(true waist)-30"
    Hips-38"
    A single thigh(not sure how to measure thighs haha)-22 1/2"
    Inseam(from pelvic bone to the floor)- 32" (usually the length of pants I get and works fine)
    Calves-16 1/4"

    Top:
    Neck-14 1/2"
    Arm(from middle of neck to end of wrist)-35 1/2"
    Chest-41"
    Waist(true waist)-30"

    if there is a site where i can enter my measurements and get custom(high quality) jeans that would be great as well...or any good OTR brand suggestions for my build would be ideal.


    thank you guys so much...Ive read about a million posts on this forum and couldn't find anything...i am probably just stupid so please forgive me.

    thanks again!

    the small RL polos are kinda big (long and lots of extra fabric at the waist) on me as well and I have a size 4 lacoste polo that fits me well. a size 4 from lacoste seems to be a little bigger than RL small custom fit polo if that helps. Anyway I would go with a 4 from lacoste if the SM RL is to big on you. Also dont dry your lacoste shirt because they get all messed up if you dry them in a drier. just hang dry them or lay them flat to dry...they dry overnight just fine that way.
