At a 31 waist and 32 length it is difficult to find pants that will fit correctly. I bought some chinos from Banana Republic (dawson fit) and I must say, the fabric isn't that great for $50 pants!

Any recommendations for some nice dressy chinos! Thanks :-)

Frank-- I have the same problem with finding clothes that fit my skinny frame (30" waist, 33" inseam). I buy all my suits & dress clothes from Land's End, www.landsend.com, as they usually have a very wide size range. I've always been impressed with their quality & their customer service is tough to beat.

Cheers,
Matt

Frank:

A little pricy, but the best Khaki's I've ever worn are from Bill's Khaki's. Several styles and weights. The original is a copy of the old military Khaki's worn in WWII. I think the web site is www.Billskhakis.com or something like that. No bargain...I think they're 70 bucks or something like that. They're bomb-proof and last forever, though.

I think mail order is usually the way to go, but sometimes Nordstroms will have something in my size. I've had some luck with L.L. Bean. These days however I'm floating in 29" waist, 33" inseam so it's tough. A trip to a teenage jeans store at the mall is like a trip to the fat farm.

Land's End Custom.

Pricey ($70 - $100 for a pair of pants ($70 for chinos)), but they guarantee the fit and will re-make the article as many times as it takes to get it right.

I'm very short-legged . . . 30/31 waist and 27 inseam, so it's practically my only option. They'll make a short (or long) rise, as well.

I second Bill's Khakis. They are the ****. Expensive, but worth it.
