    Visiting a guideshop would be the opposite of overcomplicating. Definitely visit one when you have the chance.

The 770 has a 14.75 leg opening and is slimmer through the leg than the Sutton. I've measured the leg because I thought they were supposed to fit the same. The Sutton has a 15.5" leg opening. The measurements are in the descriptions online.

    Sounds like the 770 is closer to the Driggs fit then.

    Yep. They just opened a store at King of Prussia. I own 6 or 7 pair from Bonobos. Definitely worth a shot.

    Interesting. I haven't noticed a significant difference in the fit. But I also have mostly bought shirts. I've only gotten a couple pairs of pants from them. I've also mostly paid attention to the seat/hips/waist/rise because that's where I have trouble with fit.

    The obvious thing to do is order the pants from J Crew and try the fit.

    I think the quality of Bonobos is higher. The fit is more consistent from garment to garment and the construction seems a little better. However, if I'm being honest, it's not that much better. You can probably pick up J Crew for 2/3 the cost of Bonobos or less consistently. I don't think Bonobos quality is 50% better.

    If you prefer the J Crew fit, definitely go with J Crew. Fit matters much more than the minimal quality difference here.

    I find the quality of Bonobos to be similar, if not a little better, than J Crew. On the topic of price? Yeah, Bonobos costs more and I only buy stuff from the sale section when I can pair it with a promo code (most common is 20% off sale items).

    If you do find a fit from bonobos that you LOVE then I'd say to give them a shot. If not just stick to J Crew as you already know it fits you and can be regularly had on sale.

    From Bonobos' fit guide, the only difference between slim and straight is the leg opening, the seat is the same for both. It does make sense that athletic fits you best, since that fit is let out in the seat with a slim leg opening.

    Spier and Mackay chinos aren't bad. The pair I have are a little older and are a thinner twill. I haven't tried the chinos they released this year. I'm wearing a pair of Jomers chinos today, and they are very comfortable. Fit is about as good as Bonobos and they are about half the price. I do have some Bonobos chinos that I love though.
