    What's with the swastika?

    Sorry if you find it offensive - it's not meant to be. Just thought it was an apt and somewhat amusing photograph of Gordon Brown.

    Also, does anyone have experience with the Felix shirts? They look good but I'm wondering about the cut? I'm not after the BOO / Baron Wells style which seem to suit the very slim and look good un-tucked. I was wondering if these we're more like Epaulet or Gitman Vintage - i.e. solid button downs which can be tucked in or left out. Thoughts?

    Fit is tts, slim throughout and will stretch slightly at waist. Substantial fabric, details and construction are good. Very good value on sale.

    Couldn't agree more... my Gio's (in Marine) arrived today. They fit impeccably well and the construction is totally solid. Nice heavy cotton too so these should last. [​IMG]

    Did you go true to size? Interested in a pair myself.

    I got one of the felix indigo oxfords a couple weeks ago. The fit is great. It seems to fit similarly to my rrl oxford, but with more widely spaced shoulder seams which work better for me. The fabric and the buttons both look great and the length is perfect for wearing tucked or untucked.

    Damn, I really want to pick up one of these Gio pants, but I'm a bit uncertain about sizing, especially since I'm losing weight at the moment. Those Gio pants in marine look great.

    I did true to size. I'm normally a 36" and these fit me really well. Thanks for the info on the Felix - I'll have to look into getting a couple (on payday...)

    Too small for me unfortunately. Those Gio's are going to make some dude very happy.

    I just got a pair of gios off the b/s board the other day. They fit me perfectly at true to size. I could have gone down another size for more of a skinny fit but I was looking for slim. The 7 3/4 inch hem on a 32 is very versatile I think.

    They actually fit similarly to rugby chinos sized down 1 I think, but with better construction, fabric and the longer inseam. Much slimmer than my rrl officer chinos which i should have sized down 2 on. :p

    ^so you ordered a 32" and it measures 32" in the waist, w/ 7.75" leg opening?

    EDIT: Would you mind measuring the thigh 1" below the crotch? Trying to figure out if these will be too slim in the thigh...

    Has anyone had issues with the quality and construction of the Unis Gio chinos? I bought one from Nomad and sold it to a member (since I really didn't like the color) but there seems to be some tiny holes at seams due to loose threading. I am refunding the $ for return of the pants but I am wondering if anyone else has had issues.

    One of my friends grab a pair of the gio pants a while back and had the same issue with the seams. The weird thing is, all of the unis clothing is made in the same factory that produces a bunch of RL Purple label clothing.

    Regardless, I've been itching to pick up a pair of the gio pants, so if anyone's selling a sz30, PM me.

    oboy_oboy, the answer to your question is yes, and I measure 12 inches across 1 inch below the crotch, but the leg tapers down pretty quickly. I'm 6' 165lb and the 32 fits me like the pictures on the unis website- slim throughout the leg but tight nowhere.

    I have had no quality control issues with my pair. No issue of that sort at the seams. I've had jeans that had that issue in the past, but that came from too tight thighs.

    The unis gios are seriously nice pants.

    Curious as to what Purple label stuff that would be.
    I don't have a lot of Purple label, but it's all been made in Italy or England.

    Count me as another fan of the Gio pants. No seam issues.

    That's strange I also bought a pair of the Gio's from Nomad in January and when I brought them home I noticed the stitching around the crotch had a hole in it. I'm pretty sure they would have given me a refund but I just had them reinforced at a tailor instead.
