    I recognize this has probably been discussed a million times but search parameters turned up tons of unrelated posts so I apologize in advance for the common topic.

    I have been wearing banana Republic aidens for a bit and love the fit. Problem is I feel like the color breaks down quicker than I would like. I tried the bonobos weekday warriors and liked the fit but not the sheen. I could go up to wool pants but I am trying to stick with the "one step above the crowd" rule at work and wool pants would stand out where I am. So with that said, any other suggestions that will hold up better? Let's say $100 or less. I lean heavily towards shades of grey, blue and darker brown. Not a fan of British khaki or even stone.

    If you are happy with the fit of your current chinos send them to Luxire and have them replicate them. Check out the luxire thread.

    I like the sound of that. I have some reading to do.

    I'll second that advice @IDvsEGO. Also, if you'd be willing to spend just a bit more, you should also check out Epaulet's Rivet chinos. They also have a couple other styles/cuts to offer. You can beat the price for the quality they offer.

    I have Epaulet Rivets and I've experienced Luxire's replication process...I'm very happy with both.

    I have both Epaulet and Gustin chinos. I'm moving towards Gustin only as they fit me a bit better. Both are good quality, Gustin have a long lead time though. Definitely can't go wrong with the Epaulet Rivet chinos. Definitely give the buy and sell section here a look too.
