I'd hate to start a new thread about Milanos (there are more than enough!) but I didnt find an answer specific to this question. I finally pulled the trigger and grabbed two pairs of Milano Seasonal Garment-Dyed Twill (light blue and yellow) and absolutely love the fit. In fact, the 30 inseam is actually pretty wearable for me, and I'm a short guy and hemming is always necessary.

That said, I was going to order some less seasonal colors online - navy and khaki - but then I noticed there is the seasonal like I bought and the Advantage Non-Iron. Looks like the navy is darker in the Advantage but other than that are there any noticeable differences? Especially concerned with fit.

Thanks!

No difference in fit that I've noticed, but certainly a difference in the weight of the fabric. The Advantage chinos are heavy, and can be very hot in summer.
 

Thanks SF (a new me)

^^ totally agree with JJ..Also, I find the heavier Advantage Non Iron as lint magnets, especially with the Navy..

Crease or no crease in the pants?

Looks like the advantage has a crease -- I guess you can crease the seasonals though. But, thats a good question -- generally what is the consensus on chinos and creases? Does it depend on the weight?
