    Yea, i get tres bien emails and it looks nice. The new ervell stuff they have looks good too but the stuff on that site is pretty expensive, especially when you figure $25 for shipping. Are there any other sites that carry Our Legacy stuff?

    Yoox for about $70. I think they dropped even more on the secret sale page that's linked in buy&sell to $60. But only a size 42 (about waist 34ish) left. Mine are 40 and fit like a 32 even though i'm more of a 31. They're pretty slim from the knee down with maybe a 7" hem.

    I just picked up some hickey (i.e., hickeystyle) chinos from Filenes for $70. They are super. Very soft and comfy, and slim. Might be the best chinos I've had. For what it's worth, Filenes on Boylston in Boston still has a few left for the same price, in good sizes--32, 33, 34, etc.

    I dropped by H&M yesterday and they had a new nice slim fitting chino.
    they were marked regular fit, but they def. run slim.
    They are lightweight and have a ideal fit.
    Perfect for spring and summer.

    I'll update with pics if anyone is interested.

    best of all is that they are $24.99.
    Comes in Khaki, White, Navy and Black colors.

    My april 77 khakis are nice for ultra slim looks but i kinda want a pair of Our Legacy chinos from Tres Bien shop. They have them in khaki, navy and grey and they seem really nice. I wish some US retailers carried the line as i like some of the pieces.

    where'd you get your april 77 khakis from if you don't mind me asking?

    Uniqlo Vintage Chinos are on sale at $29.99. I just ordered 2 pair using the email. Shipping was very reasonable at $7.60.

    By the way the email is customer.orders@uniqlo-usa.com and I ordered Black and Brown. I also made sure that it was the Vintage Chino with the donut shaped brass top button. I have no idea what they have left.

    I want to pick up a few pairs of the J. Crew Classic Fit Essential Chinos. What do you guys recomend ... cuff or not? (how large) and break or not? (how much)?

    Are JCrew classic fit chinos really slim? I remember trying them on the store once and they looked more straight leg than slim, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't have a skinny thigh. I just felt like it left too much room in the thigh.

    I got myself some John Varvatos chinos that fit really well and slim, the price is probably less to be desired though.

    They aren't really that slim. I agree with the straight leg assessment. They're a very good buy as a staple for 30 bucks though, for sure.

    I bought a pair of J. Crew classic fit but they weren't slim enough for me.

    I'm currently using these:

    I only really cuff them with the Indy boots because I don't like how they fall. Any other time I'll just let them break.

    My primary thought is try making your pics 80% you, and 20% surroundings. I think you're doin your fits a real injustice to have it the other way around (makes texture and other details difficult to detect). Why not rotating the camera 90 degreees, and have the photographer get closer? As nice as the park may be, I would suspect the point of the photo would be based on you. Moto type jacket looks nice, but its hard to get a read on it specifically.

    I need some trousers too. Grey, navy, purple, yellow, blue, khaki, black, whatever. Something nice and slim (slimmer than jcrew/gap shit). Brands can be a bit higher since it's almost sale time and i might be able to get lucky. I like some of the petrov stuff i've seen but one guy selling on sufu doesn't have my size in these amazing purple ones. Wanna wear with button downs, sweaters, nicer shoes, etc... Any recs?

    hah well that's a nice sized yard, I'd love to lookout to a treeline like that everyday. [​IMG] edit: /done with my share of derailing the thread, apologies. Chrono, have you thought about going the tailoring route? You'd have a decent amount of play with how you want the pants to fit specifically.

    A quick note about J Crew chinos: What was called the "slim" cut in previous collections is now called the "classic". They are cut fairly close through the hips, then taper slightly down to the ankles, but give the appearance of a straight leg. They have a medium to high rise and fit true to size. I have both regular and classic/slim pairs in a 30/32, if anybody wants measurements.
