The New Rules of Chinos
Chinos! They really aren’t what they used to be and for some still strike a sartorial fear into the hearts of certain men.

H owever, we’re here to show you that men’s chinos can, and will become an indispensable element to your spring/summer wardrobe.

By definition, a chino is a trouser constructed from a cotton twill for a strong and rugged, yet lightweight fit! Initially only found in khaki they are now available in an array of colours. Not that there’s anything wrong with khaki – it teams nicely with a V-neck T-shirt or a casual shirt for a dress down-inspired look. For smart-casual occasions, opt for rich navy smart chinos turned up with tan loafers and matching tan belt. Then team up with a crisp white shirt and blazer of a lighter blue hue and throw a pocket square into the mix. You now have an exceptionally slick look for the warmer months.

“Stay classic, a staple of easy-to–wear chinos are the very definition of versatility”
