    I want to get those pair of pants. Apparently they are super super comfortable and great for hot weather. However, does anyone have any experience with these oxford pants before? Any suggestions for sizing?



    Thanks

    It looks like they just came out. I would just buy a pair and return if they don't work out.
    They have a great return policy.

    well i just got mine and I bought them in the mint green color. Although I have to exchange them cause they fit smaller than I thought.

    -A tad more colorful than the picture
    -Great Fit.

    I got a pair of the blue ones. They are really comfy. Just order them and return if you don't like. They have an easy return policy.

    I can't really picture how the fabric looks in these, in real world. Is it very light and how formal would you say it looks?

    The fabric is really light weight and soft. Its hard to compare to something else. But if you are interested, I would definitely suggest you buy a pair. Bonobos always has GREAT fitting pants and good quality material and these pants are no exception.

    As mentioned already, their return policy is so easy... and its FREE! Free shipping and free returns on all orders. First time costumers also get a 20% off coupon.

    The pants are great, they fit maybe 1" larger than what I typically wear. I wanted to keep them, but unfortunately the color didnt look right on me so I sent them back.

    I've never seen so many positive comments about Bonobos very odd fit. Maybe they've changed it, but I didn't think so

    What sizes did you guys get and can you provide thigh measurements? I've ordered a pair before, they were a bit tight...don't want to order again if it's not even close

    I gave up on Bonobos pants since their sizing and fit seems to be all over the place. I'll echo the others though that they do have a good return policy so I would suggest ordering multiple pairs the first time around to really dial in on the sizing that you need.

    pants look awesome, I just bought one (for sizing purposes) and got $25 off, so hopefully they do fit better and are more durable than my banana republics. I like lighter fabric as I'm in Florida. Once sized, I will be looking at the yellow "jeans", which I can definitely rock in a swanky fashion on the south beach streets.

    hate to necro, but I'm really interested in these pants. I really prefer the oxford cloth over chinos and other materials. As far as i'm concerned, they look a little more formal than chinos, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are. Could i wear them year round? I'm in north carolina where it can be hot even in the winter months.

    Thanks,
    JJ
