I'm trying not to buy gurkha pants. I'm looking for a reasonably causal, machine washable chino with a high rise and straight-ish cut, maybe a bit fuller. Something I can wear with boots, sweaters and sweatshirts, casual shirts, and maybe a tucked oxford button down if needed.

The trimmer two Casatlantic chinos seem in the right ballpark, but they're currently sold out in my size. I'd also prefer to stay closer to $100 than $200 if possible. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks in advance!
What about The Armoury's sport chino?

(Whoops, nm, just looked at the price. It's above $300)

I've been reading "denim's come back" and trend stories in apparel news for years after the rise of casual wear and leggings. Those died down last year. The denim news seems to be cranking up again. This one says high waisted? I was just seeing low rise (for the youth) was coming back the other day. Fashion flatland.

younger people here (Amsterdam) are going quite all out on the 90s look, fun (but ugly in some sense). Denim is loose fit.
Same here. They all look like clones: puffer jacket or hoodie, washed wide legged denim, white low AF1s and middle part hairstyle like this fellow:

I'm moving to Phoenix in 6 weeks and need to completely re-think my wardrobe. Lived in Ireland and Scotland all my life (except a stop-gap in Georgia for the last 6 months) so I've always relied on heavy layering.

So far, I'm thinking of stocking up on some linen shirts from Muji/Uniqlo (probably remove the collars on a couple) and some real/knockoff miyake plisse pants. Otherwise, the only heat-friendly clothes I have are some baggies, running shorts, and some og107s I need to shorten. I'm not ready to ascend to Regis-level baller clothes - maybe if I get into dental school

I don't even want to get into the crisis I'm having trying to understand what a casual dress-code is when I've only ever worn scrubs

you can try the sporty look, check some of the Nike colla, reigning champ has great hoodies. You can mix that on days you don’t want to dress up too much.

Hmmm...I'm trying to move away from sportier looks. I used to have some W+H/Reigning champ stuff which I've sold or lost over the years. Come to think of it, I don't even have a hoodie anymore. I guess I rely on hoodie/jeans without it feeling stale after a while.
