What are some recommendations on where to purchase slim fitting dress pants for a professional business environment or dressier outting occasion?

Since I'm purchasing separate slim fit dress shirts, I would like to pair them up with a few pair of slim fitting dress pants for work or dressier occasions. I'm looking for more of a streamline, low rise, modern look.

NOT the ones that are nearly skin tight or up against the crotch. Just something not as old and traditional, wide, and stumpy looking. I checked out BrooksBrother's website and all their trousers look really high on the waist and really wide looking, like something my grandfather would wear.

Incotex or Mabitex...

Though I don't think the Brooks trousers really look as you describe, as long as you avoid the pleated ones...

High waist isn't bad. I am a young guy, but I still prefer it. Get them slimmed through the leg and they will look better than anything that is low rise and fashion forward.

BB's Milano fit is slim and doesn't have a high waist.

If you're planning on wearing dress pants clubbing, then just pick up some cheap polyester crap you don't mind getting beer/vomit/blood on.

Keep your decent office clothes out of the clubs.

RLBL trousers have a very nice fit with the waistband just below the waist and a slimmer fit.

Personally I do prefer cheaper pants that I don't mind getting beer spilled on such as Michael Kors (the main line not the horrible 'Michael' line) and John Varvatos when I go out.

Exactly what I was thinking...

Thank you all for your help. That's very good advice to wear the cheaper stuff out at night since it'll hurt me less if someone were to spill drinks on it. I do plan to keep the good stuff for my clean office environment.

Where do you guys recommend purchasing the RL, Michael Kors, Incotex, etc etc.
Online? or at a department store like Macys & Nordstrom?

Where are you located? Incotex & Mabitex can be found quiet cheaply at general outlets. I found some mabitex trousers at Daffy's in manhattan for under $30 a few days ago.
