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 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 Great Quality All Round
I've been buying chinos for a very long time and these are the best I've come across by far. The cut on these Classic Fit is perfect but the sizing is a little confusing. A size 36" actually measures 38". The quality of the material is top without doubt, but maybe a little on the heavy side for the warm weather we are having just now in the UK. I'll be definitely buying the light weight equivalent as soon as they are back in stock.
These are excellent, very well tailored chinos, and I'm very pleased I've found them.

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!

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.
