    What's the easiest way to measure this w/o a loose tape measurer?

    Laid flat with a ruler would be easiest. Thanks!

    ^^ +1. Although I will say this, it's not just the cut that you're buying, the fabric and construction are really really solid. It's obvious as soon as you see them IRL. Plus, the cut, it's slim and tapered but it's done in just such a way that it doesn't feel at all restrictive or 'tight'

    My J.Crew urban slim fit chinos (32x34) have 7.75" openings, and my Lands' End Canvas refined slim fit chinos (also 32x34) have 7.5" openings. I'm 6'2, 185 with pretty big calves and thighs from racing bikes, and they're about as slim as I can go.

    I wish Dockers would release their Alphas in a K1 style, and I wish they would raid Levi's non-denim Rigid fabric collection. The Levi's 511 british khaki rigids I tried on over the weekend were wicked, but I don't want a patch pocket on my khakis. :/

    I recently ordered three pairs of the Dockers Alphas in my normal size (32x34) and found them too snug from top to bottom. This is a problem I don't often have when finding my size, as I'm pretty slim top to bottom. I ended up returning two pairs, as I wore one pair just to see if I could get used to it. I've worn them around a few times now without washing them to get them a little more stretched out -- I think I can wear them with an untucked shirt now, but still, they fit too much like skinny jeans for my taste.

    I picked up a couple pairs of slim fit chinos from Club Monaco, and I'm also going to try the Urban Slim Fit from J. Crew. I think I can work with 7.5" to 8.5" for the leg opening. Someone posted here that the Alphas are 7". If you're going to try them I suggest ordering a size up in the waist.

    I think you'd like the Unis Gio's. IMO they are right in between the Aplhas and Jcrew Urban slims. Alphas are a bit too snug for me, and Urban slims run a bit large rthan i'd like. Gio's are jjjjjuuuusssstttt right :nodding:

    Thanks, Spencer! I've got my eye on them, although the price is a little painful. But if they are as good as I hope they are, a couple of pairs should do me.

    Dockers having 30% off sale ends after today. Copped alpha khakis in safari beige and slim fit soft khaki cords for a total of $70 shipped. Can't beat that....

    The Alpha Khakis from Dockers have a 7.5" leg opening.

    Exactly. IMO the Unis Gio's blow the Alphas out of the water on quality, style, fit, but at nearly $150 more each after Dockers sales prices, the Alphas are a good buy.

    I've been looking for some slimmer khakis (mainly for the leg hole) and this Dockers sale looks like the time to buy (although Amazon sells Alphas for only a few bucks more).

    For those of you who own them, how does the sizing match up to your normal measurements? I wear a 29/30 normally, but I unfortunately haven't found any local retailers where I could try them on to confirm that.

    Also - any chance their 20% discount for signing up for their emails would stack with the current 30% off deal? Doubtful, I'm guessing?

    I am a TTS 34 and I picked up the Alphas in 34 and they fit perfectly. Just for reference, I normally wear a 33 in JCrew khakis. Try and see if the promo code works on top of the already 30% off... you don't have to purchase (I don't believe) to see what discounts apply...

    They fit TTS in the waist and only accept one promo code at a time.

    So you've been able to find 33x34 in the Alphas? The Dockers site seems to have almost none (except destroyed wash) in this size...

    You can try macys.com, they only have 4 color choices but you can use the discount codes floating around and buy them at a discount.
