Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 126 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Please fix the quality Either the fit is right for you or it isn't...so I wouldn't recommend putting much stock in reviews which say the fit is bad. The cut seems uniform (e.g., all the segments are proportional). Yes, they are more snug than other cuts, but that's what to expect out of the Milano cut. If you want a slim, tight fit, these will work quite well for you. Now, the real, undeniable trouble with these pants are the quality. Do not expect the pair to last. The cuffs will start to wear out after 5-7 washes, even on a gentle cycle. The navy color will start to fade after 2 washes (the fading won't be horrible, just don't expect the pants to remain as dark as they are received). I own four pairs of these pants and two pairs of the lightweight version. You might expect the lightweight version to wear out fast if not handled very gently just because of the thin nature of the fabric, but it's pretty remarkable how easily this heavy fabric frays. This may sound absurd, but the only real chance of survival is hand-washing them and laying flat to dry. Otherwise, just hope no one looks at your ankles. I always wash and dry on a gentle cycle. They are fairly wrinkle resistant, which is a big plus, and are quite passable in a business casual environment. January 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average BB pants highly disappointed!!! These pants from Brooks Brothers look great at first and fit perfectly but after one wash you notice that the dark navy blue has faded and the pant cuffs have frayed. The quality of these pants is very poor; now I have strands fraying from my cuffs. I am very disappointed because I have always associated "quality" with Brooks Brothers products and these fall very short of expectations. I cannot recommend these pants and will be looking elsewhere for my casual work pants! February 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable and convenient...while they last These pants are a workhorse for the weekday wardrobe. I would not wear them to an important meeting but they work perfectly for regular days in the office. The wrinkle free fabric works and helps avoid constant trips to the dry-cleaner. Unfortunately, they fade quickly and will fall apart at major contact points like the belt loops and cuffs. They are priced right (particularly when they are on sale) but don't expect more than 8-12 months out of them if you wear them regularly. July 5, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must have Chinos These chinos have a great look and are comfortable. They come out of the drier with a perfect crease. January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fitting Chino! I've been looking for a quality, slimmer fitting chino for a couple of years. Most of the chinos out there are just too baggy with a huge rise. Not a good fit for my younger generation... I tried on my new Milanos this morning and was so excited about their fit, I went online and ordered two more. Eventually I plan on replacing all my chinos with this pant. It has a lower rise than usual, so remember the length is "inseam." The total length of a pant is the sum of the inseam and the rise. The shorter the rise the longer the inseam you need. This might be why some people had a length issue. I normally wear a 30 length in normal Brooks Brothers pants, but wear a 32 length in this pant. Think jeans... April 13, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great classic look, great fit... BUT... ... after second washing, the dye in the pants have washed out spots. Only happened on one of the three pairs I bought. Not the kind of thing I'd expect from BB. November 1, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Milano chino I wish these chinos fit as good as they look. I am 5-9 with a slim build and have difficulty understanding just who these pants are cut for. The size 32's I purchased are big in the waist and very tight in the seat. If I upsize for the seat I will have 3-4 inches of bulk in the waist. May 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential Khakis I have had these pants for going on 6 months now i have worn them very often. I love the slimness of the milano cut, the thing that i am most impressed by though, is the creases. The pants were pre-creased when i bought them, and now after months of wear and wash they are still as perfect as day one with only minimal ironing. Great all around Khaki, great fit with this slim cut, and they are extremely comfortable December 5, 2010

I love the fit of the Milanos straight from the store. I normally hang dry my pants after washing them so I do not risk shrinking them. Since I hang dry them, I have to iron them after they have dried (as opposed to throwing them in the dryer where the pants come out crisp, much like the non-iron shirts). The question is: Since Brooks Brothers chinos are treated to be non-iron and wrinkle-free, will ironing them damage the treatment? Thanks.

Answers

Answer: 
They can be ironed - low heat.
But you say that you don't put them in the dryer so as not to risk shrinking them. I have had many pairs of these chinos, my experience is that they don't shrink in the dryer. The non-iron finish reduces the amount of water the material absorbs during the wash, allowing them to be dried in a dryer at a low heat setting. The heat of the dryer 'activates' the non-iron finish, thus they dry quickly and come out of the dryer without wrinkles.

Answer: 
Like you, I hesitate washing them for fear of shrinkage. I have though (with a "permanent press/casual) wash cycle and dry them the same. But, I do not wash them often (about every third wearing). So far - no shrinkage. What I do between wearing is toss a few pairs in the dryer in a Dryel bag (the "at home" dry cleaning); this brings back the original creases easily. I do press them - full cotton - steam; while I don't think it is always necessary - it's just my personal preference.

If so, what is the cost?

I have a dilemma. I'm a 37/29. You have trouser sizes 38/29 and 37/30. I've been buying the latter size but the waist of the trousers is truly too large.

Thanks.

Answer: 
Hello Wambo100,

We would not advise our customers to alter non-iron casual trousers. The process might depreciate non-iron properties, which will hinder the garment from performing to its optimal best. I would speak to one of our sale representatives about helping you find the appropriate fitting trousers.

Have a fantastic day.

Answer: 
I don't believe that any of the chinos come in a 39 30. However, the Milano fit is the trimmest-fitting chino in the line, and you might consider going up slightly in waist size for that reason. I typically wear a 32 30, but chose to get a 34 30 in the Milano.

Answer: 
Hi
I have just bought a pair of Milano chinos and I would say that the pant is designed to fit just below the waist and the sizing reflects that.
I normally take 34" waist but I found that the 35" was just right in the slim fit style, the 34" being somewhat tight.

Answer: 
In the case of the Milano, the size should be smaller than your waist size. In Clark, I get a size 31, but the Milano, the fit being lower than the waist, I get a size 30. My abdominal size is slightly smaller than waist size. I mean, I have a bigger waist than 2 inches lower, so with the Milano, get size smaller.

Answer: 
The Milanos seem to sit a bit below the natural waist and are true to size for me at that position. The Clarks seem to sit a bit closer to the natural waist so sizing up one size if you have any belly flab at all is definitely in order.

Answer: 
Personally, I would go with a size above what you might wear in jeans or other casual pants. I've found that the 34" fits very nicely on me in this particular pant, where in jeans or pants from other places, a 32" is best. I would say that the measurement is where the pant would sit on the natural waist.

Answer: 
A general rule of thumb is a flat front chino slack will not have cuffs. I do add cuffs to my flat front suit slacks because of the cut against a dress shoe. Chinos are more casual and general worn with a more casual shoe.

Answers

Answer: 
I have dribbled things onto my BB chinos, too. More than once, in fact...

If your chinos are a light color, take them to a good dry cleaner. It may take some skill to get the entire stain out without damaging the fabric and without leaving a ring, so you may not want to try to get the stain out yourself. Not all dry cleaners are created equal, so I do mean a "good" dry cleaner. If you don't have one you trust, your local BB or other men's clothing merchant may have a recommendation for you, or carefully read online reviews.

If your chinos are a darker color, you can probably get the grease out yourself. This is what I do:

I use a good stain-removing spray (I chose one based on a Consumer Reports article). Use a toothbrush or fingernail brush to work it in (gently) from both sides of the fabric, then wait a couple of hours before washing to let it work. Wash the pants in very warm water with a medium-sized load of other 'warms', including smaller items like t-shirts and underwear. Be sure to use a good detergent (see CR again...) The warmer the water, the softer the bacon grease, and the easier it is for the detergent to remove it. (The water ought to be warm-enough for you to shower in. Check your washer temperature at part-fill, set the machine for "hot" for a few moments if there's a need to warm it up a bit.)

Don't use bleach, it doesn't do anything to the grease and is harsh on the fabric.

After washing, examine the pants closely to see if the stain was removed. Don't dry the pants until you know for sure. If you still see evidence of a stain, you may need to try something a little more aggressive. Wash them a second time, but instead of the stain-remover, apply detergent directly to the spot (again with a brush) and let it work for a while. Consider pre-soaking them in a sink with relatively hot water. Although the care tag says "40 C" (which is 95 deg. F)., you can probably safely soak them at a higher temperature. (Note that if it's too hot for you to leave your hand in, it's too hot for the fabric and the finish.) My suggestion of a hot-water presoak is probably frowned-on by BB, especially since the care tag doesn't recommend hot water, however if the stain is really obvious you won't be wearing the pants again...so IMHO it's worth a try.

If there's still a noticeable mark, well, you can always wear them with a long coat......
