    Does anyone have any experience with the new Slim Fit Chinos (Red Fleece) from Brooks Brothers? I have a pair of Milano that fit nicely. The new slim fit chinos are most casual are slimmer fitting and a tighter crouch. I tried my actual size and the waist was very tight. I didn't feel comfortable with the pants and tucking in a shirt. Is it suggested to buy true to your since the pants may expand? Or is it best to get what is comfortable with chinos?

    I have Milano and Red Fleece and I think the Milano have a slimmer cut. I would definitely not buy a tight waste as they tend to shrink a bit after a few washes. Buy a comfortable size and have a tailor take them in if need be but I like my Red Fleece better than my Milanos.

    Thanks for the response. I agree and disagree. The milano are a straighter slimmer cut. The Red Fleece are tighter in the crouch and in the legs. How long have you had your red fleece for? Also, Milano are more formal than the Red Fleece.
