    Like most of the other posters I got my Baron Wells chinos today. I generally wear a 34/32 in Levis and most mass market pants. After taking a look at the measurements I ordered the size 34 in Navy and Khaki. I am about half an inch short of 6 feet and weigh 195 so I was concerned about ordering sight-unseen.

    My initial reaction is that the pants are snug on my thighs but not restricting. Length is perfect for me and overall the fit is very nice. My usually go-to for work chinos is J Crew Bowery and these are quite a bit slimmer then those. I will definitely consider Baron Wells when I am looking for chinos again, just probably go up a size and try 36.

    Cotton On makes a pair of Sim/Skinny Chinos. Pretty cheap for only $35. Be sure to size down. I'm a 32 & was able to fit a 30.

    Sounds like the Baron Wells are a shade slimmer than the EP Rivets, correct? Probably doesn't matter since I've decided the next pair of chinos I buy are going to be Rivets. I love that they use mercerized cotton. I think that makes the fabric look a lot more polished and it gives them a really nice sheen that makes them look expensive, frankly.

    Given the discussion that's been going on here, thought people might find this interesting. Commerce With a Conscience ran a post on Unis, the brand by Eunice Lee. People apparently love Unis' chinos, but someone had a gripe in the comments about how much they cost. Lee replied and made a pretty good case, in my opinion. http://commercewithaconscience.info/...irts/#comments

    Any Unis chino owners out there want to weigh in with their feelings on the brand?

    Unis is a good brand all around and my pair of gios are my favorite of all of the chinos I own. The felix shirts are also quite good as well as the tees and the outerwear.

    Teger, epaulet? The british khaki is lightweight, I think the navy should be the same material

    Thought people might be interested in fit pics of the Baron Wells chinos. I ordered a size 30 and they fit me perfectly in the waist. I'm 5'10" and 140 lbs. I don't think these are the best fitting chinos in the world - they're almost too tight up top even for my extremely skinny legs/thighs, so normal-proportioned people must have no hope except to size up and tailor the waist. But I do like that they are slim.

    They are definitely too tight on you. Probably too short as well.

    you serious?

    for the skinny fit, it's not bad. I'd even say the bottom half is too loose and long.
