THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a pair of straight or very soft tapered jeans with a higher rise, room for a big bum, and a lighter weight for summer (around 12-13oz).

My options so far are:

TCB 20s

TCB Catboys

Sugar Cane 1947

SDA 40th Heritage 

Warehouse 1001 

I like the cinch back on some of these but it isn't a deal breaker. Only brand I own something of in list list is SDA, they also have the highest price, rather keep it low as they won't be my primaries. Open to other options.

LVC 1955 or 1976 would be perfect in terms of cut and weight.

Any experience and/or sizing advice for Sanders Playboy Chukkas? Fancy a change from desert boots.

A bit outside the scope of superdenim, but still, what's the opinion on wearing a pair of Trickers Bourton (dainite soles) with a suit at a wedding? I am afraid they would be too bulky...

I think they’ll be fine. I wore mine yesterday, although with jeans.

Would be fine with a suit.

I'd like to get a non-denim pant back into the wardrobe, and I'm really liking the look and measurements of 3sixteen's new Fatigue Pants. Most chinos and pants are way too slim in the knee and lower leg for me. But $265 seems really expensive. Any other non-slim/non-denim alternatives worth considering?

I don't have any, but the Orslow fatigues look cool.

Or Stevenson fatigues as well.

@MileHighEvertonian the MF Sportsman chinos are great... high(ish) rise and plenty of room in the leg... however they come at 289 USD. RMC also worth looking at.

Tender Co. does plenty of non-denim pants in wider fits.

Stan ray fatigues and Chinos are very reasonably priced

I'm having the same thought recently and am interested in the orslow fatigues but again they're pricey. I like the UES baker pants as well. Any sateen baker pants really. 

Stan Ray do an affordable made in USA alternative. 

Edit: should have read to the bottom of the page...my contribution = UES! ;)

Thanks, all. Despite the price tag, I ultimately decided to spring for some brown MF Shipyard Chinos (rather than the Sportsman). Compared to jeans, pants have been much harder for me to get enthusiastic about at these prices. But I think these MFs are distinct enough from a run of the mill chino/fatigue look without being too over-the-top, which means I'll actually want to wear them consistently. The Stan Ray option is definitely one I'll keep in my back pocket; thanks for the tip.
