Hey,

I'm looking for decent Chino brands, looked at Bonobos (walmart) and uni gio (overpriced) is there anything better out there for the quality to price ratio?

I was also looking at these https://www.tedbaker.com/us/Mens/Clothing/Chinos/Slim-Fit-Chinos/SQUISHY-Slim-fit-herringbone-woven-trousers-Navy/p/230517-NAVY


Not sure what I can wear those with. Are these worth it?

UniQlo is overpriced? I’m not even sure how to answer that.

kind of funny there has been a misunderstanding with uniqlo

seriously tho, i quite like uniqlo chinos for value.

not certain about those ted bakers being chinos. remind me more of a dress trousers, not sure if you are going for a formal look with your chinos.

I was looking through TB and saw the trousers and wanted to ask what users on this forum feel about Ted Baker and if they're good to get.

Land's End
Are they good quality? They kind of remind me of the GAP with all their chino versions. I skipped J.Crew because to me they went downhill. I'm willing to pay for quality but not at extreme prices, even though I've read tons of reviews about Norseprojects being a good chino pant, color doesn't fade good construction, but they don't really have slim fit chinos, they do but are baggy from what I've read from people who purchased it.

given that no one knows exactly what that means, how is anyone expected to answer.

Personally, I actually like UniQlo. Try it. A pair of chinos will set you back around $30. What have you to lose? Another option is J Crew.

As long as they fit properly you’re about 75% there. Chinos are inherently casual and I’m not sure the relative value of paying $200-300 for a pair vs. $30-75 is really that much.

Land's End were £18.50 in the sale last month, exceptional value. They are replacing BB chinos in my wardrobe.
