Slim Fit Dress pants (Like Mabitex but not Mabitex)?

I love the Mabitex i bought on here, and my regular slub pants feel like loose tents on me.

Besides Mabitex, what other brands are slim fit? Are the Zanellas (that you see on ebay crop up) all slim fit? Or are they made for US fat boys? The only slim fit I can see (listed as slim fit) are Calvin Kleins, for $89 a piece.

The calvin klein bowery fit is slim but the rise is a little too low for me. BR tailored fit is good, but the selection can suck and you have to wait to get them on discount. What I look for is a decent rise and material I like and take it to my tailor to get slimmed up.

How can your tailor slim it up? You mean the width of the pants legs? I find that the tent-like width is worse in the legs, it's made for 300 pounders

I think Theory, J. Lindeberg and some Club Monaco and BR Monogram pants are pretty slim.

If the Mabitex work for you and can be had for super cheap, I say keep going with them (Im a fan).

But I've owned Brooks Brothers in the Milano cut and they are just as slim as the Mabitex essentially. Try them out, can be had pretty cheap on sale.

But again, RLBL, Incotex, etc.
