This is my 8th pair of Gramicci "G" style pants. I literally wore out my first two pairs, the lighter weight twill versions purchased 14 years ago, from wearing them almost every day in my job as a construction manager. The design, with the diamond shaped crotch insert, makes them perfect for climb...

I tried the Gramicci original pants and they were cut fuller in the front and legs, they also have a straight leg. I sent them back . The Vintage G are slightly more tapered ,not as full ,with a tapered ,yet roomy leg .The fabric is very durable without being too heavy .Very comfortable for trekking around, gardening ,sitting by outdoor fires. I much prefer the Vintage version of these pants as I can roll the bottom and the cuff stays put.

I ordered the Biscay Blue color, which I thought would be a turquoise color. They're much darker, more like teal, which is okay but they do look a little like scrubs, especially since they are baggy and don't have rear pockets... I decided to keep them despite this. They are comfortable and well made! For reference, I am 5'9" and 130lbs and ordered a small with 33" inseam. I could have gone a waist size smaller, but I am happy with the length.

The only thing I have negative about this pant is that the drawstring does not open wide enough sometimes to get the pants on. Being a seamstress I can take it apart and extend it but most people would not have any idea how to do that. Also if you are looking for a more tapered look in the leg don't buy the Original G Dourada pants - the width on them is 17". These are 14".
The Original is a straight leg pant and the Vintage is a tapered leg pant.

I own some of both styles. Some differences I've noticed: The Vintage have tapered legs, no back pocket, a three part deeper and longer gusset in the crotch which seems to result in more fabric around the hips. The gusset on the Vintage size medium runs about 5" wide and 15" long. The Original have straight legs, one back pocket, and a one piece gusset in the crotch. The gusset on the Original size medium is about 3.5" wide and 9.5" long.

"twill" is just the weave pattern, cotton is still cotton.

These are more like a lightweight canvas fabric. The twill versions are a diagonal weave, and the twill is softer, more like classic chino pants. I have several pairs of both fabrics -- the twill is softer, almost feels like flannel after a couple of years of wearing and washing, BUT it is not as tough as the regular cotton weave of this model -- I tore one pair of the twills when I wore them hiking and caught them on a twig (in fairness, they were 8 years old and worn pretty thin by then). The twill has a nicer drape and you can wear them to the office like you would regular chinos. The plain cotton has a more rugged and canvassy outdoor look, more like jeans or cargo pants.

It's a twill that's been peached and is substantial in weight - kind of like a denim.

As a weaver, I think I can help. Both descriptions are correct. Cotton is the fiber and twill is the specific weave of the cloth. If you look at the cloth, the woven pattern seems to have a slightly diagonal slant and is woven by passing the thread over and/or under two or more threads; as opposed to the weave in a handkercheif which is over one thread, under the next. This twill weave gives the fabric much more flexibility, better drape, and greater ability to recover after stress and helps the pants keep their shape even after much bending and climbing. This weave is also one of the reason the Gramicci Douranda Pants are so comfortable.
