    I am familiar with Incotex, owing a pair of the sartoriale line and know they are fabulous trousers.

    But I was wondering about their lower-end trousers. In particular, I found a pair of flat front, almost jean cut, with straight leg cotton pants on Yoox for $39. Anyone have experience with their casual Khakiesqe pants? I guess $39 is well worth it, but any comments in particular on the fit, quality, etc?

    I bought a pair of Incotex jeans last year. They fit well, but be forewarned that they are not a loose-fitting or at all baggy cut. At least the ones I got were more form-fitted than I'm used to; thus, you might want to pay attention to the lower leg measurements in addition to the waist.

    I've got a pair of casual, black chino-style slacks from Incotex. They fit like a normal pair of chinos you might find at Polo or Brooks Brothers -- i.e., they fit as you'd expect them to fit.

    i bought a pair of incotex jean-cut trousers a few years ago, before i knew what incotex was (from wilkes bashford warehouse sale, can't remember the price) - they are pretty form-fitting as well. they are at the tailor's getting 'expanded' just now to fit my slightly enhanced girth, somehow that happened between the time i bought them and now. the material is really soft, maybe moleskin, i'm not sure. the color is ...i guess i would call it brown mustard.

    /andrew - needs to make time for getting back into RTW shape.

    Are there several levels of Incotex slacks?

    There was a thread on this a while back, but I think sartoriale is the highest, formale is the next highest, and then you get into the casual line and the cheaper stuff made in Portugal, like the aformentioned trousers.
