    Just looking at this thread now, anything worth picking up with 40% off? No experience with it. Might just grab a belt or something basic.

    I got a similar vest from J. Crew last year and I love it. I actually really like this one 40% off seems like a good deal to me.

    Personally, I'd stay away. I tried them and found the rise to be way too long. Stick with LEC for chinos, until you've grown older.

    Someone said a few pages back that this years LEC straight fit almost like last years slim, and I agree. I just recieved in the mail my pair of elston straight chinos in umber. They color is pretty unique in my opinion. It's like a mix of copper, a dark pumpkin and an old weathered brick all into one. Like I said, the fit is perfect for me; I already returned their slim fit because it seriously was bordering on skinny. For the price that I got these ($36 for free shipping) I love them. I would probably be happy with $60 too, but with the amount of coupons, I'll always wait. :)

    Hey guys. Just received my elston slim chinos in yacht blue. As people have noted, they are borderline skinny. People were hesitant to post a fit pic, so I took a quick snapshot for you guys. Having said this, the weight is a little heavier than what I am used to, although I am certain they will soften up over time.

    If anyone is interested I can take better pictures, but looks like the interest has already died down.

    I got my chinos in too. And they are much heavier than I imagined, but the fit seems pretty nice.

    Yeah, I just got the Allen Edmonds blue suede's. They're really nice. It's basically the "Stewart" from AE but with blue suede.

    Interesting story- I ordered the chinos and they sent me a women's shirt on accident. I returned the the shirt to Sears and called them. They overnighted the chinos at no charge, so free chinos. They feel really skinny, definetely more skinny than J.Crews slim fit, but they look decent. A little bit too tapered.

    I've been admiring those for a while, and hoping that a promotion or sale will come along that includes them. No luck so far, I might just have to bite the bullet and pay retail :(

    imatlas: Probably not gonna happen. The AE's at LE never seem to go on sale and are immune to sales every time I've checked w/ a code.

    Speaking of sales, LE and LEC have a 30% off coupon right now:

    code: FRIENDSHIP
    pin: 1520

    I'm gonna pick up more of the straight chinos.
