I've been looking for the perfect pair of khakis for years and I've worn everything from cheap to expensive. I'm happy to say I've finally found what I've always wanted. I read about Bonobos over a year ago, but didn't order a pair until recently. Now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long. The fit is unbelievable, the quality is fantastic and they look great. I rarely write reviews of products, but I just had to rave about these pants.

Best khakis (Boot cut) i have ever tried in my whole life. My friend recommended me this brand. From now on i will try to have all of the bonobos pants in my wardrobe. First time i am writing a review for the product i have used. Shipment and replacement procedure was really very very nice and satisfied. Fantastic fit. Good quality of the material and service.
I got my order delivered today and believe me it was surprise for me. I never used to buy clothes online just by looking at the pictures,
however this time after giving a long thought i ordered for this khaki boot cut. This pant was really amazing, i like the comfort although it a little loose fitting for me since i'm little skinny. On the whole i like it. Good Product and timely delivery and most of all i like your caption about the return policy, which even while reading gives a honest impression. Way to go.
Not For Me
HUGE variations in sizing. I usually wear 34 waist, but ordered the 33 in these pants based on other Bonobos I have. The size 33 was gigantic in the waist. Not true to size at all. I exchanged for one size down thinking that would do the trick. Nope. These pants are not true to size.
Absolutely love these pants. Some of the best cotton slacks I've ever worn. I bought a 36, I'm a 34 in jeans and 36 in dress slacks they're just a little on the bigger side but with a wash and light dry will probably shrink up to the perfect size. This was my first purchase with Bonobos and it won't be my last.
Awesome pants. Small pockets.
Great fit, good quality, fast shipping & the best return policy.
Not For Me
These don't seem true to size. My other Bonobos pants are 33s - the same size in these are tight in the waist on me. They're also skinny through the thigh too so be careful if you have an athletic build.
Not For Me
Pants are great in the waist and fit great through the legs, but are too short. I ordered a 31x32 (which is what I wear in almost everything), and I really need a 31x33 but they only offer 31x34. I may try a 31x34 but that will more than likely be too long.
Very comfortable but would be much nicer without the plaid lining. My husband wears a lot of plaid shirts and the exposed lining of these pants clashes with most of them. Without the lining he would wear these all the time, not just with solid colors. Pockets are cut very shallow, but unlike some Bonobos styles these have an internal coin pocket, which makes the small and shallow-cut pocket much less annoying.
AWESOME pants for any wardrobe (order my usual 32x32 in Bonobos and they measured out to 32x34, so I had them hemmed). I own 5 pairs total!
Terrific color and fit. Ultra-fast shipping. I never write these kind of reviews but I felt compelled to write one after receiving these pants.
For those with athletic/thick thighs, be careful. The material, rise, and posterior are outstanding, but the cut in the thighs is very tight. My coworkers were actually able to see the contour of my muscles beneath the fabric. Aside from that, these pans are great – just not for me. I should note that I am still the proud owner of eight other pairs of Bonobos. Keep calm and carry on.
I love the color, feel and weight of these khakis. And being 6'8" with an athletic build, these pants definitely flatter my frame, slim me down without being too tight and don't make me look boxy. The attention to detail is excellent and the button closure is unique. Will never shop at Banana Republic again, with free shipping and received product in 3days after late night ordering.
30 length way too long
Ordered these in 31x30, and the length is a good two inches too long. I have had 50/50 success with Bonobos when it comes to the size 30 length - saw this issue on the Grey Dogs as well. Not sure how this happens, but these had to go back. Huge bummer since the fit through the thighs and the material and styling are great - I just don't have an interest in buying khakis that need alterations.
rise is low for tall men
by Pants wearer
After purchasing, I discovered the rise on these (waist to crotch seam) is 10" for the 34" inseam. I wish the description was more specific than "medium rise". On men 6' or taller a 10" rise is likely a low rise fit. It was with me (6'3" height).
I couldn't keep the pants for this problem. Overall the finish seemed nice. Waist fit seemed +1" over true, i.e. if 32" order 31".
GREAT COTTON KHAKIS!
Just got these pants and the fit is perfect! I wear an in-between size, 33X30, which is sometimes difficult to find in stores. And even then, the waist and length might not be great. Here, the waist and length are just right! Don't mind at all the somewhat shallow pockets. These look and feel GREAT! Highly recommended.
These fit me true to size, great lightweight feel too
Got these pants yesterday. Like the over all fit, but very disappointed that the length is too long. They knew it and placed a pin where the 32 length should be. Not a big deal to go have them hemmed, but as Michael pointed out, I'm not really interested in pants I need to have altered. If they were out of that size, it should appear that way on their website.
Only one other remark, but totally unrelated. All the decent sale items are always out of stock. Also not a big deal, but disappointing nonetheless...
The Worst Pockets on a Pair of Pants
The pants are great except for the pockets. They are very shallow. I made the mistake of putting my smart phone in one of the pockets-it fell out soon thereafter and shattered (and I wasn't skateboarding). I have a standard, bifold wallet. It partially sticks out of the back pocket. The only thing the pockets will hold is a chewed piece of gum. The only time I can wear these pants is when I'm wearing a vest or coat with pockets.
From Bonobos: Hey we heard this feedback and newer versions have deeper pockets. Thanks for the comment.
Beware of size
by Scott R
These are an inch off in the waist, too big. The flair is pretty big too. The front pockets are ridiculously shallow. I just measured the length and it's also an inch over. I ordered 31x30 and got 32x31. Did get a compliment the very first time I wore them because the plaid rear pocket lining draws attention. I like the snap closure.
