Won’t get much love but I have Norse aros slim in a number of colours and get so much wear. Sit perfectly on most footwear.

Like the look of universal works military chino I think it is but the New Yorkers just sat in my closet

What are Orslow 105s based on? Looking back on the thread it seems the 107s are based on 50s era 501s?

Looking to get a pair from LVC but want to achieve the same straight leg kind of fit from the 105 if thats possible

Guide to the fit of Levis 501s here:
https://www.slideshare.net/LevisXX/fw13-lvc-fit-guide

Thought 107s were a bit slimmer than 501s, would have said 105s were more like 1954/55 501s.

Cheers GG - agree with you on them fitting like 54/55s. Popped by American classics and they told me 54s were super slim so just proves FUK knowledge >>>

Looking for a slim taper style Ripstop pant are the New Yorkers still the go to pants?

Just one style, but Peggs did a special run where they added another backpocket and improved the seat

The orslow easy pant are a slimmer combat, I have a pair Kafka done with them from a few years back and also the grey pair from current winter season, picked a pair of the bureau x orslow service pant which are based on there 6 pocket military combat pant without the side pockets and sized down from a 3 to a 2 as I was worried they would be too loose, they are good fitting but I’d definitely say the easy pant are the slimmer cargos they do.

I have the easy pants. Quite slim but the seat is still pretty relaxed. I took my usual 3.

Going to list a pair of 107 and 105 one wash size 3 if anyones interested. They were abit too big for me when I first got them then I lost weight.

Edit: this is the 105 I have the tags etc aswell to pack with them
