    Here's one guys: I'm looking for a pair of slim-fitting (think J Crew Urban Slim fit) chinos with a low/short rise. Literally all of the chinos that I have seen have high rise and fit awkwardly on me. If it helps, I am only 5'3", built slim. Anyone have any ideas?

    Plenty of great ideas in this thread. I am still waiting for W+H to restock in my size. Other than that, I am looking at Our Legacy and Thom Browne, although that's really s**t hard to find here.

    I'm a 31/32, but went 32 in these. I guess they felt tighter, maybe the low rise. The leg opening is 7.5" on them. To compare the JCrew essential chino in urban slim fit, I went 31 and feel these fit a little baggier than the Milano. Not sure if your BB stocks these (mine doesn't). I'd order a couple in different sizes and return the ones that don't fit or all of them if you don't like them.

    I bought a couple pairs of Milano Slim Fit Plain-Front Non-Iron Advantage Chinos online. I really like these.
    I tried these on last weekend and loved the fit. The only thing that makes me nervous is the repeating chorus of reviewers complaining about the quality of cloth. Any thoughts on that? - Keith

    I don't have any issues with the quality of the fabric. I always wash my clothes on the gentle with cold water and hang dry and it's held up fine for me. I've not needed to iron them. I've even ordered another pair in the dark taupe to add to my navy and khaki colors. Where did you go that had them in the store? The DC area has not had the milano or extra slim fit shirts in stock. I've had to order mine all online. [​IMG] EDIT: Nevermind, I see your from Bah-stin. [​IMG]

    Ah-yup! They had 'em in Chestnut Hill. Unfortunately, their stock was somewhat limited, so I had to try on 30L instead of 32L. I assume the taper difference between 30L and 32L wouldn't be that great for a 32W or 33W.

    I'm poised to order two pairs of the Milanos.

    I'm guessing these aren't likely to go on sale or qualify for anything more than the $10 registration coupon anytime soon?

    Well, they've got the two-fer deal right now that saves you $20. Other than that, isn't there a Father's Day sale coming up?

    By the way, how many folks here have checked out the Epaulet Rivet Chinos? I'm very tempted to pick up a pair of the British khaki chinos, but they come in at the price of two pairs of BB chinos. Still, I imagine the quality is top-notch.

    So is it safe to say the best <$100 pair of slim chinos are J.Crew's slim-fit? What about their officer chinos? As far as their webshop's pictures go, I sort of like the look of the officer chino more than the slimfit.

    Why do you guys like j.crew? All their stuff is hideous.[​IMG]
