As the title states, I need some khaki pants to wear. I'd be wearing these out to "dressy events" and church, so no cargo pants and the like. I'd like them to be slim, as well. For reference, I wear 34x34 in most dress slacks. Any ideas or links?

Scour the Buy/Sell forum for Mabitex cotton pants, I've seen quite a few listed in Kahki shades. Or if you live close to Manhattan, stop by a Daffy's and pick some up yourself. I cant find a better slim-fit pant for the price ($30!!). Plus theyre unhemmed so a 34" inseam is no problem.

Banana Republic has some really nice ones. I actually only own one BR item, and it's these dark khakis. If you don't mind the fact they'll only last a season or two, I find they're a great price/style ratio.

At $179, these may be out of your price range, but I don't think you will find anything better in ready to wear, and they're an outstanding value.

Dockers D1 aren't bad at all. They're nothing extraordinary, but who really needs $150 khakis.

Well, if that's the case than the OP could just skip the offering plate for a week or two.

Well, they're a little tight for my hockey player ass- I wear the D2, but I would love if they had the leg of the D1. Still much, much, better than the generic baggy shit they used to sell.

The fabric is still the same, the construction seems a little more finished then in the past, and the fit is much, much better. Dockers has made strides. I just wish there would be more color selection in the slimmer fits.
