So a few days ago I asked MrDanger to recommend some solid grey chinos that’s below $80. I usually get my chinos from Rugby but I just wanted to see what else is out there… Anyway, MrDanger recommended the Dockers Alpha Slim Fit chinos. These are my first pair of Dockers and I gotta say, the quality is pretty damn good. Their motto for these pants are; “Break em in like jeans. Wear em like khaki.”
and they truly are built like jeans. The fabric is pretty heavy so it can be worn pretty much all year round. I think the fit is very close to a 511. I can tell because it’s just tight enough in the thighs to be socially acceptable.
The best thing about these pants are the slight tapering. If you’re wearing slim chinos you don’t want the pant leg just going straight down and leaving that excess space around your ankles. Especially, if you’re wearing the pants like me:
it’s almost skin tight around the thighs, so for the rest of the pant leg to come down and open up around the ankles will look so awkward, especially when I’m walking and having that flap at the bottom flailing in the wind as I take each step.
The build quality on these are seriously amazing. I feel like I can go play basketball in these without a problem (they’re that comfortable too). The orange accents (although only on the inside) is a nice touch for pants on such a low price range. For anyone looking for a nice pair of pants that will go well with almost every event, whether its work, going out on a date, or chillin at the bar with your friends, I highly recommend the Dockers Alpha slim fit pants.
Price; ~$45 AMAZON (amazon prime ftw)
