With that context, I tried:Match Men’s Slim Tapered Casual, 32. Decent if you are lean. Quite inexpensive and lightweight, but not obviously “cheap.” Despite the slight stretch, my rear is poppin’– I’d recommend ordering slightly up, but I think a 34 won’t work for me and wish Match made odd sizes. Someone called these relaxed fit…they are only relaxed relative to a skinny pant (perhaps super thin legs, bad item?). Low rise part is part of the current style, and I wonder if guys are ordering too big to try to pull these pants up above the hip. If you have a thinner rear, you should be fine (I mentioned ordering Asian brands to a Korean friend, and he made the point that Asian men are not typically known for derriers).
Match Men’s Slim Tapered Stretchy, 34 (the 8060 with higher spandex). Unimpressive style. They seem to be high rise with a taper that makes the calf tight (they are fairly thick so they don’t stretch as much as a 4% spandex often does). The high rise seems contrary to a tapered pant, unless you are a woman going for that “mom jean” style. I tried dropping them to my hip, but when you do that you tend to have your thighs caught up in the crotch area. Returned them.
Volcom Men’s Frickin Modern Stretch Chino Pant, 32. Fit was fine–guided by the brand’s website which you really should visit for measurements and see their other styles. A bit more formal cut compared to some as they are higher (a mid) rise and aren’t tapered or very tight (they are skate pants?). Not a lot of stretch…and oddly, a bit scratchy. I kept them for work casual days.
Volcom Men’s Kinney Pant, 32. Not great. It’s like the maker couldn’t decide on a style. Like an IPA with no hops, or a stout with no malt. These are stretch? Overpriced for this quality–I can buy these for less at any big box. Seem to be high rise…but grabbed my fellas when pulled up and my thighs couldn’t separate when I tried to wear them lower. Might explain the mention of a belt. If a belt is a must to keep your pants up, then just get a potato sack.
Dickies Men’s Regular Taper Stretch Twill 5-Pocket, 34 and 32. Awful. Bluntly, I assume these get by on their reputation among workers. I used to load UPS trucks, and we loved Dickies…but we were wearing thick canvas for function. These have almost zero stretch despite 2% spandex, shrank a lot, and are too thick for summer.
RVCA Men’s Stay Pant, 32 and 33-. I really wanted to like them as many like this brand… I love a comfy 5 pocket (jean cut) pant. But look at the picture…the pant sits above the hip. If you want that look, cool. They had a slight taper. But minimal stretch.
RVCA Men’s Daggers Twill Pant, 32. I was hopeful as they looked good. More low rise than the Stay Pant. But minimal stretch. I’d recommend trying them.
Prana Bronson, 32 and 33. These are pricier and not tapered, and part of what inspired my search for cheaper, better-fitting stretchy pants. But I have to say that if you like a mid rise and don’t want taper, then try these. Very stretchy (though the khali were better than black) and decent style for work.
Was this review helpful to you?
I did read the review regarding the lack of space in between the legs by JenB that was in the top-rated reviews for this product, but since I didn’t have that problem with my other pair of Volcom pants, I thought, “Surely this reviewer can’t be right! I love my Volcom pants!”
I was so wrong.
I got these in the mail a few days ago and immediately put them on. JenB, you were so right. These fit great on me, but the obvious lack of space for my “special parts” was VERY noticeable. I looked at myself in the mirror while wearing this and was actually really quite surprised at how….expansive it made me look. I didn’t want people looking “down there” when I walked past them so I decided to return these.
I did give the pants 3 stars because there really wasn’t anything wrong with them – they just didn’t fit me right. I wish that there would have been more space in “that” area though.
Can’t recommend this product to you – try at your own risk! Blessings!
I got the black ones, only complaint would be that they definitely pick up hair and stuff pretty easy. Can’t really get around that though. Overall happy with the purchase, will likely purchase another in a different color
