    If youre looking for casual pants, I highly recommend Grown and Sewn. Kind of pricey, and probably not for the office unless you have a very casual office where you wear jeans regularly, but a great fit and really good looking for khakis.

    Man, just because 511s are the only pants your little piggy bank can afford doesn't mean you need to impose your financial insufficiencies on the stylistic choices of others. Really getting sick of your posts...

    haters gonna hate.

    I was referring to the guys talking about dockers, jcrew, and other plebe level brands which aren't going to be as slim fitting or as nice of a cut as the levis. if you want to kop some baller chinos, I'm sure there are great options. But levis are a great alternative to these other budget options.

    I'm a chino guy, wear them often and have tried plenty given that I have been in a business casual environment for over 12+ years. I understand wanting to purchase on a budget and I'm all about that as much as I am into the higher end stuff, but after trying so many different brands and variations, I just can't get behind too many of the brands mentioned in this thread.

    When I can get Mabitex or Incotex at Daffy's on the cheap for $30-$50ish or from the B&S for $75 max, I just don't see why I would spend that money on cheap materials with lousy fits. If you are able and willing to step up to a slightly higher price bracket, I would highly recommend forum affiliate Epaulet slim chinos, they're locally manufactured, materials are boss, and they have a great slim fit. If the price is too high, consider Mabitex and Incotex and browse the MC B&S.

    fwiw jslade, I certainly wouldn't mind having some nice chinos. as tonio mentioned, the epaulets seem really nice. I've had my eye on the camo ones.

    Glad to see that this thread is moving away from the ~20 pages of Dockers sizing questions.

    Yeah but those aren't even chinos, they're 5 pocket jeans, they're just khaki color. Not really appropriate for any occasion where actual chinos are required.
