    Does any store, anywhere still have these in stock? I'd basically give my right nut to get a pair of these in 32. Hell I'd go on a fucking starvation diet to get a pair in 31 if I had to. Or get a 33 and have the waist take in.

    Have you tried, say, calling/emailing Secret Service?

    Anyone have fit pics of some tapered crate chinos? I just got some and I can't if I should get them tapered and hemmed a little bit or just taper them and let them stack.
    here's a pic of mine as promised tapered from knee to hem, 7.5 across hem. hemmed short to wear with Docs [​IMG]

    Man these look great. I would live to get one of the James cuts when they come out. Has anyone seen any pictures of these in black?

    The James cut has come/gone...unfortunately they all went to vendors overseas so it's more likely you'll see Bigfoot before a James chino.

    I've seen the black ones in the Hamilton cut....same fabric, just black. matte looking, not a super deep black, but def black

    I had a James III jean in a charcoal greyish cut that was alright, except the thighs were unusually tight and they seemed to subtly flare out from the knee. They were had for ~$35 marketed way down from Barney's, so I figured what the hell and wore them on and off about 7 times over 2 months. By this time the 2nd crotch button popped off and would not go back onto the backing that was entact into the jean material which was frustrating (I bought true to size). Compounded with the fact that the endges were purposely unfinished they looked neat at first, but then the belt loops and such just started fraying nonstop and I would keep cutting off the thread. I ended giving them to GoodWill as they were agrivating to wear. I hope quality and design is much better now than it was a few years back. The experience has made me hesitant to consider purchasing again although the product looks nice.

    Jason,

    That is a great job tailoring those. They look great. And for those interested we do have some chinos available in Hamilton and James cuts black and tan. We brought some out of the woodwork. Actually we just finished a small production run for some accounts.

    Erdawe,

    Get in touch with me. I hate for someone to have a bad Crate experience. We'll make it right.

    - Chad

    We will. Founds James, Hamiltons and Routes in the tan khaki and Hamilton and James in the black. Sizes are limited though.

    Found Routes in the tan khaki.

    !!!!!! these need a good home.......!!!!!

    not to slobber on Chad's dick or anything, but the Hamilton khakis are freakin awesome....I almost never think about owning 2 pairs of the same pants but these might be an exception

    Sorry to bring up an old thread but I'm no special flower....

    I'm looking for a pair of Crate Denim James Chino in a size 30. Wear APCs in a 27 and Nudies in a 29. I wear a 30 in most other pants. There isn't anywhere in Phoenix that sells Crate.

    Any ideas? ShopDetour has them in a 29 but I think they might be too small.

    I really need to see a pic of the Sally's. There's gotta be someone who can get a peek at 'em before they're out. Mauro...

    They run very true so yeah, I'd avoid the 29 if I were you. SS might still have some James Chinos around but I didn't count that many a few weeks back.

    Nope. I don't think even Chad's taken photos of them, either.
