    I would like to know this exact information for the JCrew Urban fit [​IMG]

    Sorry if I missed this, but I'm looking for actual waist measurements on the gap and dockers slim fit. Are they true to size, or vanity sized?

    I sized my Dockers city slim fit true to my normal khaki/dress pant size. For the Gap khaki's I need to size down one. I'm a 30 in Dockers and a 29 in Gap.

    Those new J. Crew joints look like they're the classic with more taper. Are there any pics other than the site's? Also, H&M has a nice slim cut.

    Does anyone know if Rag & Bone's Newman chinos (photo on http://www.odinnewyork.com/) are the same as their McQueen chino from last summer? They look the same to me (from photos), but haven't tried these new ones on in person.... I hope so, cos the McQueen was the best fitting khaki's (and perhaps even pants, period) I've ever bought

    Think those are the pair I tried on recently. If so they are cropped really short.

    The slim fit W+H chinos from this season have the same issue. The inseam is between 31 and 32 inches. It works for me, but if you are any taller than 5'9" to 5'10" range then they are likely too short. (Unless you want your chinos to look like capri pants).

    ^ Yeah same - I'm around 5"10 or 11 and the McQueen's hit right at the top of oxfords/sneakers.

    I think that's perfect for summer, but prefer a slightly longer in-seam in winter.

    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.

    Im pretty sure the newmans are the same as the McQueens, they just renamed them. They look like have the same ouseam detail thing, which i actually dont mind.
    I have some McQueens from ss08 in mushroom, which is actually that same fabric as the dark mushroom newmans. I know this because i ordered the cotton blazer in dark mushroom and then found once i got it that it matched my McQueens, which i wasn't expecting.

    Anyway, i've been wating some slim cut khaki colored chinos, so i just ordered these: http://www.eluxury.com/estore/browse...sp?id=12172440

    My H and M khakis were cheap, but I had to get them tailored in the waist a little bit cause H and M fits weird a lot. Then again, your gambling on quality. I got lucky.

    Aren't the T-000's you speak of just khaki-colored denim?
