    Has anyone bought any of these? If so, can you comment on how they fit? Are they relaxed fit or "traditional" fit (pretty slim); do they have boot cut or traditional cut hem. Here's one of them.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....84&rd=1

    since it's my site, i'll comment. i did not try any on b/c the size 36 sold out really fast. i can comment on what people have told me:
    i had a local who swore he's a 34 and he bought the 34 and they looked just like jeans should look. not tight, not loose, just flattering.
    nobody has emailed back and said "these don't fit right" and i've probably sold at least 25 pair.

    My experience with Borrelli jeans has been that they are slim fitting with very narrow legs.

    KB,

    That's what I was afraid of.... In my limited experience I have found that casual slacks from both Borrelli and Incotex run small and narrow (based on a pair of Borrelli cords and a pair of Incotex jeans, both of which I had to return); dress slacks by both are a different story and seem to run true to size.

    For jeans, I would stick with jean & casual clothing maker. Borrelli is not one of them I think.

    I started a thread a while back on a very narrow (8.25" leg opening) Borrelli gray worsted dress slacks that I returned. Look at the measurements at the knee and at the cuff for Borrelli (and Barba) trousers on 'worlds finest'-they're very tapered. Incotex doesn't have this issue. I'd be careful and ask for the measurements, to avoid returns.
