Question for the office crowd, what's the best Chino in 2019? Looking for blue/black mid to light weight, slim fit: should still look like proper trousers tho, not painted on.
Looking to spend about £100 per pair, don't want to spend more than that as they get knackered super quick in the office rotation.
Anyone have any from spoke? Can't tell if they're actual quality or they just spend the most on insta ads.

NN07s and Incotex are Fuk standards and can frequently be found at discount retailers Yoox/tkaxx etc

Arket's slim fit chinos are decent for £50ish. I've a navy pair I've worn fairly regularly to work since Xmas and they're still in good condition.

I’ve got Arket “utility” trousers. Better fit on me - not stupid tight. Really decent for not much coin

Incotex are great but quite exxy if not discounted.

Incotex almost all seem to have a ridiculously low rise and are expensive at full price.

Nn07 Marcus, only gripe is the seat gets a bit baggy.

Got Uniqlo slim fit ones. Prefer ones that have stretch, find them much more comfortable.

YMC Deja Vu pants are excellent if you like a tapered fit.

Big fan of the Norse Projects aros model, they do winter and summer weights. Managed to refresh the pairs I had with some from TKMaxx a couple of months ago.

Do chinos ever keep their colour? Forgoing pre-distressed ones.

Carhartt pretty much bomb proof.

Also looking for some new trousers - something with a wider leg that tapers to the ankle, falling around ankle length or slightly cropped. Black, grey, navy etc.
Already have a few pairs of Folk Assembly pants and a pair of last year's Uniqlo U cropped wide leg which are decent, but neither wash well and go very faded after a few months. Any suggestions welcome.
