    AllSaints Pipe now Volt?

    Hey Guys

    I was going tto get a new pair of chinos on AllSaints, my usual is the Pipe Chino. I havent shopped there for quite a while now, but noticed there are no "Pipe" chinos anymore.

    Are they now called "Volt"? Are they the same, or are the Pipe coming back?

    The skinniest fitting chinos that all saints now do are the stove chinos. I have to say that even though they are a direct replacement for the pipes, they do not seem to fit as well. Maybe it's my physique, but there seems to be something slightly off compared with the pipes, which seemed to be more of an ideal skinny chino in my opinion.

    Having said that, it may be what you're looking for.

    Thanks, appreciate the response. Always dislike it when they change up what to me is an essential.

    New name, little change, and higher price.

    Yes indeed. It also lacks the elastane which made the pipes very easy to wear.

    Youre right. 100% cotton... Might have to look for an alternative.

    Asos skinny chinos are a pretty good bet. Great fit and the price is a no brainer. Obviously the quality isn't as good, but it's not easy to find good skinny chinos.

    If you fancy something pricier maybe give these a shot. Personally don't think the price is worth it even though the quality is top notch.

    'Pigeon' really? Who thought that would be an appealing name for a colour?? On the point of material content I would be cautious with 100% cotton. Even if they are comfortable and easy to get on they will at some point stretch and the fit will be off.
