    [​IMG] Can anyone recommend me something similar to these, but more affordable? Does Uniqlo make anything this slim? I need khakis, not khaki colored denim or anything thanks!

    [​IMG] Yeah, I feel you, I'm not even going to look it up, they're probably like $400. I can't justify basics at the prices they ask.

    Uniqlo makes my ass look flat.

    So do they make a similar pant?

    Sure Uniqlo makes pants that slim, slimmer even... but they make my ass disappears and I won't buy them again.

    Edit: also, why are we discussing Uniqlo under a best anything thread? Uniqlo is worse than H&M.

    P.P.S. Any online retailers for save khaki, other than barney's... they don't have much of an online selection.

    None as of now, but the spring line should be in stores around 3/15, and Barneys should have a better selection then.

    Not to threadjack, but can someone recommend the best lightweight khakis? I'll be Tokyo during the brutal summer, so I trying to figure out what's the closest khakis to shorts.

    Levi's makes some pretty good fitting lightweight khakis. I believe they're called 511 British Trousers.

    J.Crew khakis suck. The classic fit cut is atrocious, it's got this ice-cream cone thing going on. Too small around the ankle, them balloons up at the thighs into a high-waisted mess. The relaxed fit just looks ridiculously baggy. How about that giant fit?! Examples of poor looking khakis here: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Mens...ants/chino.jsp
    This is the information I have for the classic fit in a 32 waist that was emailed to me a week ago or so by a j crew rep * Classic-fit Waist- 34 Hip- 42.75 Thigh- 25.75 Leg opening- 16.5 I don't really see how the leg opening is too small? 8.25" is pretty big, especially compared to the recent trend of tapered pants/denim these days with very small leg openings.

    I should have a pair of these by Friday. By the msmts looks like a good fit. BIG is also getting a shipment of SDA khakis that appear to be a slimmer fit. They will be around 185. I will post fit pics when the BIG chinos get here.
