Im getting over wearing jeans
Anyone know where to get some nice affordable black trousers?
Ones that are still somewhat casual/versatile and wont make you look too overdressed.
I dont want chinos if possible
not OP but because they will match most anything and can be incorporated into sort of "streetwearish" and minimalistic fits while not being completely #menswear and making you look like you're wearing fuckin suit pants lol
has anyone tried asos brand pants? They are pretty cheap
I usually just wear "dress" pants. Something like Patrik Ervell's formal pants. Slim, good fit. I don't think black is currently available, wrong season. Also not sure what your price range is, but I believe they are on sale at the moment. Obviously something like this might require a little more care, as well.
For more casual wear, you could look into something like Levis Sta Prest. Keep in mind these are a poly-cotton blend so they won't breathe as well as some of your other trousers. On the flipside, they keep crisp. You can pull them out of the drier without needing the worry about ironing or anything. These are kinda my go-to, cheap pants.
For other stuff, try looking around on British clothing sites that cater to the punk/skinhead heritage sort of crowd. They'll tend to have stuff in that style, though I can't really speak to quality of value. Ben Sherman springs to mind.
is that bright blue stitching on the levi's noticeable? and from the site they look kind of grey. but as long as they're solid and sturdy i'll consider them.
i go up a size in the waste of 511's just for extra crotch space and tapering room, but no matter what, every pair of levi's trousers i've had pull at the seams by my thighs. even though i have room in them. so that's definitely something i'm trying to avoid.
Not true. Price doesn't always mean everything, and brands matter even less.
Fabric is fabric, fit's can usually be altered to your liking, and regardless of the label stitched into the seam, a $200 pair of poly-cotton trousers will hold up just the same as a $20 pair of poly-cotton's from Target.
The idea that nice, cheap clothes don't exist is probably the most hindering thought in fashion.
Not sure which one you're looking at. I have pairs in green, black, grey, and khaki. The stitching is all the same color as the rest of the pants.
Size-wise, the sat prest fit a little different than Levis denim simply because the waist doesn't really stretch out. So, I'll usually wear a 30 or 31 in 511 jeans, but a 32 in the sta prest.
I do wish they had a slightly higher rise. Beyond that, don't have any real issues with them.
I'm guessing this line is pretty old and not coming back anytime soon, since this is one of the only options for that style, but this is the pair that I found.

I reckon u should check out Henrik Vibskov OP
something from google
Thom Browne if you're into that whole cropped pants jig
Ah, didn't realize they weren't currently available. Levis has discontinued and reissued the sta prest line pretty regularly over the years. I might expect them to bring them back closer to autumn/winter.
Those are one of the pairs I own. The stitching on them is black. Pocket interior is some sort of turquoise, but you won't see that unless you actually pull them out. The color isn't the deepest black you can find, It's hard to describe. It's slightly "shiney" which makes it look a little lighter than it maybe is.
There are some pretty good dickies that are real cheap. There are a bunch of types you really have to mind the material type before you buy
Dickies twill work pants shrunk in a dryer at high heat. In deep blue
