Manday: A good chino ain’t so hard to find

Welcome back to Manday! I read a WSJ article recently about the evolution of the men’s chino, and wanted to share.

Remember when the guy chino looked something like this? Well, thankfully those days are over. I hope. Gentlemen, please make sure this is the case.

Today, chinos have evolved to flattering styles that can be worn in the office, on the weekend, and even out on the town. They’re become–dare I say it–sexy.

Lately, my favorite color is olive. It’s neutral but interesting (same goes for women’s olive jeans). ¬†Also digging light grey, navy, and wheat. And my preferred places to shop for downright sexy chinos are J.Crew, Vince, and Ralph Lauren (I like their 5-pocket style).

Just remember to go with FLAT FRONT (that’s no pleats AT ALL). And if you’re going with a khaki color, I suggest something more saturated, as the light khaki can tend to look like a school uniform. As for fit, give the slim fits a shot. It might feel weird at first if you’re not used to it, but I promise the slimmer cut will make you look taller and leaner. And who doesn’t want that?

I leave you with a sexy man chino shot. You’re welcome.
