    Right there with you. Only issue even if the code DID work is the size I'm looking at for the Indy's doesn't ship until August 7th

    I'm pretty bummed I missed that. I picked up the plain toe Chippawea in late 2011, but I really want the Indy's. Seems they are more expensive everytime I look at them [​IMG]

    484 is their slimmest pant online. If you go to a store you can get a 484 slim jean. I own 484 and 484 slim jeans. The 484 slim is slimmer then the regular 484.

    Never tried on the 484 chino's before, are they similar to the davis chino's from Club Monaco?

    I find the 484 to be a bit slimmer in the waist and more tapered at the leg. I recently tried on the Davis and did not find their cut to be especially slim; in fact, from the knee down I found them boxy

    I find the Davis to be pretty much perfect. Not extremely slim. It's slim to me but not extremely slim like how folks like it. I'll try out the 484 for the hell of it.

    Signed up for and was approved for J Crew's Credit Card yesterday.

    $25 gift card for every $500 you spend (not including taxes, fees, etc) and special 30% off sales more frequently throughout the year at no annual fee? Sounds good to me. [​IMG]

    The only catch you should be aware of is that points expire after one year.

    Dude, my J.Crew tells me this too. "Oh, yeah, the Urban Slim is the same fit as the 484." No, it's not. I don't know why they say that.

    I still wish the 484 tapered about a quarter inch more. The way the ankle is distressed on the sun-faded chinos makes them flare just a bit more than I'd like. Actually prefer Gap's Lived-in Slim.

    A tailor could fix that taper for you for probably $10 or so.

    Agree on Gap's lived-in slim being as good or better than 484 washed. And at half the price (not counting the costs borne by Bangladeshi garment industry workers), even cheaper on sale. $40 + 30% off = $28. Ends today.
