Slim is a “Drop 8” fit and our standard slim fit. It's the same fit as our standard size Hudson jackets and suggested for guys in good shape that want a trim fit.
Classic is a “Drop 6” fit and a more generous, boxy cut. It has more room around the waist and is intended for guys with larger midsections.

Extra Slim is our slimmest fit around the hips and thighs, with a distinct taper from the thigh down to a narrow leg opening. Suggested for guys that are either particularly skinny, or more average sized but want an aggressive slim fit.
Slim is our modern, office appropriate, most popular, slim fit. Slim but not tight with a taper to the leg opening. Suggested for average sized guys that want a clean modern look that’s not too tight.
Straight is similar to our Slim fit, but with less taper at the leg opening for a wider “boot cut”. Suggested for guys that want a relatively slim fit, but a leg opening that will cover more of their shoes, or fit over their boots.
Athletic is roomy in the seat and thighs, but tapered to the knee and leg opening. Designed for guys with larger thighs and buttocks relative to a smaller waist. If you’re an athlete that wants a modern slim fit, but “Slim Fit” pants are generally too tight around your legs, this is for you.
Classic is roomy in the seat and thigh with a leg that stays straight from the mid thigh down. Suggested for guys that want a more old-fashioned, roomy fit and a leg opening that will cover more of their shoe.
