Check out Sid Mashburn. They have a number of configurations (5-pocket, standard, officer, etc.) in a slew of cloths. Just mind the measurements as they can sometimes vary, depending on the factory used. I find calling the store directly is most helpful.Looking to give chino pants a go. Fairly smart looking, loops and no stretch please. Cordings and JPress are both out of size. Not sure about Bills. Any thoughts on Drakes?
orSlow's army chino is really good, but I don't know if I'd call it "pretty smart". @Hellbent , are you looking for something with a crease? Pleats? If you're ok with something more workwear then I definitely like the orSlow (and personally chose it over RRL because it has a higher rise).

The J. Press military twill chinos are great but I don't even see them on their site right now (I reached out to J. Press about the cords from this season that were just released but were only ever available on the site in a few odd sizes in any color and was told they have some supply issues and they are expecting re-stocks later in the season on a lot of trousers).Rrl chino is not dress chino though
I have a pair of the Rota twill cotton side tab chinos/khakis that look smart casual. They pair especially well with a knit. They do require dry cleaning to look their best. Ideally, if funds allow, get khakis like this plus a second machine washable pair like the RRL Officer trouser for a much more casual vibe and easy care.Try Rota for smart chinos.
