Nice pants, good fit and appearance, material a little heavy for warm weather.

Good for summer or business casual
We bought 3 pairs last summer and my bf wore them every day for work for about 6 months. They're great because stains come out with a little pre-treatment, and they're really non-iron, which is great for pleated pants.
The pair that he wore the most wore a hole through the rear pocket (admittedly, he has the fattest wallet -- physically speaking, not metaphorically -- that I have ever seen, at least 2.5 inches thick!), so this is not surprising. The cuffs did not fray, however, which I take as a sign of durability.
We bought 3 pairs again this summer -- 2 in his favorite color, 1 slightly darker -- and thinned his wallet considerably. Hopefully, these will last longer than the pairs from last summer.
Oh also, the "British Khaki" color = not a fan. It's a dark-ish khaki with a reddish undertone. It's a difficult color for medium- to light-skinned person to wear in general, but also difficult to match it to shirts. I actually think that this is the one shade of khaki for which a completely white shirt will actually clash. It looks ok with a black or navy top, however.

Good chinos and khakis
Good looking, decent fit khakis and chinos. Only negative, which seems common these days, is shallow pockets.
So when you sit down, and cross your legs, the change flows out of your pocket! Sure would be nice if they used a bit more cotton to make the pockets deeper.

I own numerous pairs. The slacks look great but the fraying at the hems is very fast ... cannot recommend as a result.
