Chinos

If you are the kind that is stuck between jeans and dress pants, then its time you went out of your way and tried out the chinos. Chinos, are a wise way to pull off a formal weekday look, and also cool look for the weekend.

This wardrobe staple can be worn by both the young and the elderly, and it all depends on how you choose to pull off the look. Even if you are the type that loves to keep it casual, all the time, you can still dress up casually with a pair of these comfortable pants.

Chinos come in various colours, to suit each and every man’s personal style. From the navy green for the fashion forward man to the light brown or white chino, for the laid back guy, you can be rest assured that you are covered.

Unlike the past chinos which were loose fitting, and buggier, today’s chinos, are well fitting, and tailored to suit every man’s personal style.

The most important part of wearing chinos lies in what you choose to wear them with. You can choose to wear them with a plain cotton shirt, or a striped shirt. Do not limit yourself. Try out different accessories, like the bow tie, or a blazer, to compliment your look.

For the shoes, you can try folding up the bottom of your chinos to create a cuffed look, and then throw on some oxfords. Or you could decide to wear them with sneakers, safari boots or moccasins.

If you are the kind that has a strict no jeans at the office policy, these pants could be a great alternative to your washout or ripped jeans, simply because they can help you keep formal, and at the same time be casual in away.
