The Trad's Blind Chino Tasting

Staying on the subject of chinos, the excellent blog The Trad recently did a series of 'Blind Chino Tasting,' posts where men's style writers G. Bruce Boyer and Robert E. Bryan reviewed 13 pairs of chinos with the tags and prices removed. The results are interesting, and without spoiling too much, lend faith to the idea that when you purchase a garment produced with a focus on detail, fabric, and history, the extra money is worth it. I've never heard of Bill's Khaki's (link) until the posts, and while I'm a positive they won't fit me without some serious alteration, I'm a bit curious to try a pair.
