    From what I was Googleing this morning, khakis and chinos are used interchangeably in the US a lot, but both are a different type of trouser.

    Nice trousers are new to me, only since I've joined this site in the past couple days have I even heard of chinos.
    I grew up doing construction, prior to my current job, I had 1 pair of khakis and a white button down shirt for dressy occasions :)

    Khaki=color.
    Chino= the pants.

    Need to get David copeland over here for his info sessions. Haha

    @SeanMarcellus I think you are going to like the trousers from Epaulet. They are definitely different from a $50 version, particularly when you are talking about the wool they run.

    Here's a snapshot of the Carmina caramel calf Alt Wiens, in the snow. Almost like being in Old Vienna itself. (Is that Harry Lime skulking in the background there...)

    NIce..... looking forward to getting my hands on a pair.
    Currently I wear Alfani Red (bad word on here?) I get off ebay for 20$ because I like the slim fit ($135 retail). When you hold them up you can see through them.

    I've got the money and I hate to be cold, so I'm determined this winter to get some warm pants.
    I just started to lean about style a few years ago, I feel like I missed something growing up, and this endeavor to find warm dress pants has opened a new world to me.

    Welcome! This is a great place to learn because A) the frequent post-makers are very well versed in men's clothing and B) it is one of the friendliest threads on StyleForum.

    What you have learned so far is quite impressive and everyone's advice should help as well. My first pair of real trousers were from Epaulet four years ago and I still wear them regularly. The other thing that you will discover as you get more into men's clothing is that Epaulet's prices are actually a STEAL. Products of similar quality to basic wool Walts (around $225) routinely retail for $350+ elsewhere.

    There is a reason why the word "addiction" gets thrown around this thread so often...

    How warm are the tweed walts? I'm afraid I'll get too hot at work, but they would be awesome for my commute.

    Recently I found out what good shoes are, today I ordered my first $200+ pants, epaulet grey tweed.

    Is there a big difference in shirts $50 to $100 or $150?

    I usually by Van Heusen fitted on sale for $25 or less ($50 retail), then I get them fitted for $8. The world of differences in shoes and pants from what I'm used to makes me wonder.
