    I can't measure all that because I have to get them hemmed, (they fit amazingly otherwise, plus I bought them at 25% off) but this is what the website says:

    Crafted in a slightly worn vintage chino wash that works with everything and cut for the University fit you love, this chino sits lower on the waist and trimmer in the hip and thigh with a slightly tapered leg.
    Standard-rise waistband with belt loops, zip fly with button closure.
    Hand pockets and open welt pockets at the back.
    100% cotton. Machine washable. Imported.

    Online only. Hit the clearance link.

    Would they have those $23 milanos in stores or is it online only?

    Eh...for that price I would just buy the Epaulet's chino. The fit on that seems way baggy.

    yeah, even the D1 Slim Fits are too baggy, so the D2 would look like a tent on me. And why would anyone pay more than 40 bucks for a pair of Dockers?

    so the D2 would look like a tent on me. And why would anyone pay more than 40 bucks for a pair of Dockers?

    i tried on some D2s at some store just to see what they were like. they were strangely tight in the flat front, like they were cut for full bulge showing. the thighs were halfway-slim, but after the pants hit the knee they were baggy. i hated the cut, even for the 28 bucks or whatever they were on sale for.

    they fact that someone would pay as much for those baggy dockers pictured above as they would for a pair of handsewn, made in the usa epaulet rivet chinos is mind blowing.

    Agreed. I would wear nothing but Epaulets if I could. Unfortunately, I can't even afford 1 pair, never mind enough to create a viable work wardrobe.

    Lol same here. All I can live with for now are the docker's wader and SF slim fit which just came in this morning. The fit on them is really nice and slimming. The fabric on the wader is stiffer than the SF fit but I think they will soften with wear and wash. I will probably keep but they need more neutral color choices instead of bright ones that I wouldn't caught dead wearing.

    ^ I got the Waders. After 2 weeks of wear they look amazing and get really soft. PLus Given my inclination to be stingy, Dockers are perfect.

    Epaulet chinos in a size 30 have a 7.75'' opening, which is too tapered for my tastes. I'm slim, but a straight leg with an 8.5'' to 9'' opening is more my style.

    The K1 chinos are of very high quality. Made from material from Galey and Lord, which supplies to the British military.

    Some comments on the fit here, which is not skinny, but slim:
