I'm wearing these exact pants right now. Paid 4 bucks at the thrift, brought them home, and tapered them from the knee down to an 8" leg opening. If I EVER find high end, flat front chinos of any sort, I will do just this. To me, chinos look douchey and boring, so I generally stick with more fashion forward jeans. I'm starting to realize their appeal, but with 80% of them being parachute pants with oodles of pleats, I'm still going to go for the cheap option, altered by myself.
