Rated 3 out of 5 by Woodski Are all guys really this thin?
Good quality product as ever from JCrew, but was expecting a similar fit to the broken in chino shorts I bought (4 pairs)
These trousers (pants) are cut tight through the thighs and seat making the waist size irrelevant. They are supposed to be a 'classic fit' - but seem to be following the trend in men's fashion to make ever thinner cuts of shirts and trousers. These may suit slim boys/men but are a poor look for the more traditionally built guy. The US Marines can't shop at JCrew I'm guessing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by J2theCrew Classic Fit Is No Longer Classic Fit
Something happened between when I last bought a pair of "Classic Fit" chinos a few years ago and now. I think what happened might be called the hipster-fashion invasion, which now has decimated any vestige of a "classic" or "traditional" fit or look at J. Crew. What you have done to the classic fit is horrible, and about as classic as a pair of trendy yoga pants. The taper below the knee takes the "classic fit" far from the traditional and rather Ivy League-ish silhouette that made chinos like these good looking. Until you bring back the old classic fit dimensions as well as the now entirely absent "regular" fit chinos, I will buy my chinos elsewhere. I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainmanjp Reasonable alternative to the standard 1040 Chino
I really wanted to regular essential Chino in Stone, but it was not available. This is a reasonable alternative it is cut slightly trimmer, seems to have a heavier weight fabric and the inseam runs a little shorter than the standard classic. Overall a well made Chino but I still prefer the non-broken in version. Note to J. Crew - some of your die hard customers were slim and super slim 20 years ago however now we enjoy a more casual and comfortable cut, it would be nice if we could continue to buy our basics from the store we probably purchased our first pair of khakis from - please bring back the stone color in the classic 1040 fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerry Perfect casual work trousers
Only sold online for some reason, these pants are great for work. They are not too slimline but still cut slimmer than they would have been a few years ago.
On the same principle they also sit lower on the hips than trousers used to - something I find rather annoying.
But that's how things are these days, I'm just looking forward to waists rising again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian Excellent straight fit
I wore urban slim fit chinos for several years before realizing classic/straight fit pants suit my body better. I tried both these and the Essential Chino. These have a slightly larger leg opening and thus a straighter fit - the Essentials were too similar to the urban slim so I will return those in favor of these. These are on the long side, but I prefer getting my pants hemmed. I already ordered the other two available colors, please offer more colors!
