Make way for a new bottom staple for men – “The Chino Pant”

Chinos 3


Chino pants are a retail highlight this season as designers and trend forecasters have elevated this pant to be a key bottom piece in menswear. Chino’s used to be stiff and uniform but they have taken flight to new parameters and welcome easy adaptable options that can be worn in a diverse number of places. Whether it is a relaxed, tapered, or tailored fit, every man will need to own a few pairs. It’s revivifying to know you’ll have another option besides your denim jeans.

Chino pants can be dressed up or down. You can go for a strong, rugged outdoor look, or simply a dressier, smart casual style. The sky is the limit for versatility as they go with almost everything in your closet: t-shirts, sweaters, blazers, polo’s, button up shirts, it all depends on you and the weather. All you have to do is match the colours and patterns of your attire. They are comfortable and available in lightweight or heavier weight fabrics for transition into the fall. Slimmer fits are widely available and you can roll the cuffs or keep them straight legged. Both flat front and single pleat varieties create a polished, sophisticated look.  A tapered silhouette helps control the volume and keeps it practical for everyday wear. Match them back with loafers, chucks, vans or formal shoes you can transition this pant from work attire to happy hour drinks without having to change.
