    JCF "Broken-Chino" versus Bonobos "Washed Chino"

    Hi, I was wondering if any of you sartorial masterminds had experience with both J Crew Factory's "Broken-In" Chinos and Bonobos' "Washed" Chinos?

    I am a huge fan of the latter, but today's post (http://dappered.com/2015/07/50-off-e...-crew-factory/) has me curious. I'm a size 31/32, and I was looking at this pair of navy chinos https://factory.jcrew.com/mens-cloth...ame=chalkboard

    I'd be getting their "Bleecker" fit, which is comparable to Bonobos' "straight" fit. My calves don't allow me to wear slim fits, unfortunately.

    Any input is appreciated, thanks!

    I think a lot of brands are getting into the Broken-In, Lived-In, Washed, etc. chinos. They're probably all generally just pre-washed which makes them feel softer. I have no experience with those 2, but I've found the Gap "Lived-In" definitely feel softer than standard chino.

    The Bleeker is VERY straight fit. I would opt for the Sutton... it is really not that slim. More like a tapered straight fit, IMO.

    Thank you! I love Bonobos. Most of my pants are their Washed Chinos. If I can get a comparable pair for $30, then I am down with that.
