Im looking to get a pair of Pants that are black and slim kind of like Dior Homme's except cheaper. What a good place to look at for a pair? They would be for casual wear like a button down shirt tucked in or not and a pair of Black PS Shoes.

Try Icotex. I love my first pair of grey wool Icotex pants.

I don't know anything about the different lines they may have, but mine are very slim-fitting.

Yoox has Incotex, and while they are nice pants, I would only buy them at deep discount. Also, the cuts vary but they are generally not all that slim, not Dior skinny anyways.

Tons of brands make skinny black pants. What fabric? What price range? Our own Michael J Krell makes some slim black/navy chinos that seem nice.

Well I want something Close to what the Dior Homme Pants are like for $250 or less preferably. Also something between a 17.5CM leg opening and 19CM

If your budget is $250, why not buy actual Dior Homme pants? They can regularly be found on Yoox in that price range (charcoal, not black - even more versatile). Example: http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?sec=1&Y...S&sts=sr_men80 With all the sales going on at this time of year, you would think it wouldn't be that hard to pick up a pair of 50% off Dior pants. Come on, be a little resourceful here, if that's what you really want.

What's good about Dior Homme pants? I thought black is a more versatile color than charcoal.

You can always get a cheaper pair of pants that fits properly on the top block, then spend $15 to alter the legs to your desired specifications. I do this often with pretty much all of my pants.
