Raf does some too, but his pants are even slimmer (a bit too slim in the thigh for me) in my experience. Raf x Fred Perry had nice trousers last season.

Margiela also does really nice trousers and has a few different cuts.

Haha, that's pretty much every brand that I beast over. Burberry trousers look really nice this season too.


Can you put up some pictures of the Jil pants? How much do they run for?

I've heard a lot of good stuff about them and I am kind of interested in getting a pair now.

I've been meaning to post a topic like this so thanks!

I have some of the JCrew classic fit. They have a decent slim leg, but my complaint would be the top block. I wouldn't mind if it were a bit more slim. I will probably pick up some more unless I can find something better for the price.

All the above have hems around 7 inches and are very slim through the leg, just the way I like it.


What slim trousers do you wear from Hickeystyle? What is the sizing like?

Can anyone comment on the fit and quality of topman slim trousers? Do they fit true to your actual waist measure?
Edit: I just noticed that some of the topman slim trousers have a high % Polyester, not sure I'm that interested anymore.

I'm looking a pair of black as well as grey slim trousers - good quality for a decent price.

I got them back in 2007 so I doubt they have these anymore, they're super slim though with low rise, on par with my incotex chino fit-wise but much softer fabric. They have curtained waistband with side tabs, no belt loops, very sleek indeed.

I have a pair of RRL officer chinos
I picked up a pair of these from B&S - I like them for what they are, but I wouldn't describe them as slim at all. Definitely more of a full cut than even my J. Crew regular cuts.

Can anyone provide me with some insight or point me in the direction of some brands that are doing this right?


I... I don't understand the topic.
