Alright folks

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.

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.

Are they a slim fit? The descriptions says they are, but those product images got me wondering.

issue with qlo ones is if you’re a masculine height (>6ft) they are way too short

Definitely slimmer than pictures look - but will depend on waist size…. might not be ideal for the gunt crew

Do keep colour well too

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.

This. They are pretty much the only ones I buy. However the navy does have a tendency to fade after only a few washes; unless I am doing something wrong.

Barena is also great if you can get them cheap, I think it's called the Rampin range.

Just bought a couple of pairs of these (black and navy) and had them cropped, decent quality for the price:

Can't comment on how they wash yet though
