    Ran to marshall's closest to me and found a pair in what appears to be the "dark pebble" colorway. Tried them on and they are definitely slim bordering on skinny, but I didn't mind the fit. Price was 16.99, there were no other colors, probably for the best because I would have bought them all...

    In your defense Glen, bourbon does have a terrible grasp of the English language.

    @Acousticfoodie - I flubbed that one pretty badly. BenR is right, Bonobos has NO diaper-butt. That's what I meant to say. The bourbon translated it wrong.

    I think he's saying that they don't have a diaper butt, in much the same way that Bonobos... also don't. I think.

    I just ran out to Marshall's... they didn't have anything worth getting. :-/ Meh, it's for the best, I shouldn't be spending any more money anyway.

    Just grabbed a pair in gray. They taper a ton. Wasn't sure but I got the wife's approval. Her favorite feature was the fact that there is no "diaper butt", a la Bonobos. Works for me.

    Stopped in yesterday and was able to get 2 pairs of the Alpha Khakis for 16.99 each. Can't wait to break them in.

    Sal's correct, try the D1 (get the soft fit), they're a more standard slim fit. You're right that the Alpha Khaki/SF fit are almost a skinny. They're tapered. I've got big muscular thighs (I'm a 33 W in LEC and a 32 in most other things) and I got 34/30s for these Dockers. It's a new fit for me but I feel really comfortable in them after sizing up (and probably have 0.5-1inch of extra space) and have found they look good on me with boots and a casual fitted shirt. I don't see D1s at Marshalls as much. They can be bought on the Docker's website for as low as the mid-20s at times, but are usually available for 28-32$. Try them on at a Kohl's or JC Penny or Macy's first though.

    I'm by no means an expert on this subject but I believe you could try the D1 which is still slim but not as slim as the Alphas.

    Someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Edit: double post


    Yes. In the ON slim I'm wearing 28 and in the LEC I think 29, and I went up to 31 and 32 in the Dockers and they still seemed too tight in the crotch but then too loose in the waist. Like you said maybe they're just not for me. Bummer because the price is so good.

    laxattackdog you felt they were too tight even after you sized up? Maybe they just aren't for you, nothing wrong with that.

    I went to Marshalls and tried on a bunch of the SF and Alpha khakis they had in a variety of sizes. Seemed wayyy too tight for me. I feel comfortable in the new old navy broken in slim khakis and the LEC slim chinos, but the dockers seemed more skinny than slim. All of these people on here saying they're a great fit now have me second guessing myself.

    Didn't see these at my Marshalls. Are they just on the regular racks or is there a display for them?

    No problem guys. I got the tobacco and brown colors and I've never worn pants in these colors before (or pants so slim fitting) so I'm struggling to figure what types of shoes and shirts to wear w/ them. I've got muscular thighs and a somewhat athletic upper body so I don't want to look ridiculous or unbalanced in them (5'9", 170). They look funny with medium sized polos or with dress shirts that aren't tucked in. Maybe I'm not used to them? Suggestions?
