Chino cloth is a kind of twill fabric, usually made primarily from cotton. Originally used in British and French military uniforms in the mid-1800s, today it is also used to make civilian clothing.

They also have no pleats and are tapered at the bottom of the leg.  This means you should have a pair in your closet without a doubt.  They can switch hit as both casual and dress pants, which make them a necessary option in your wardrobe.  Finding clothes that serve a dual purpose is essential so you can minimise your costs and get more bang for your buck. 


These chinos from Polo are on sale for $70 – good investment if you ask me.  A tried and tested brand and a classic pair of pants can never go wrong.  You can pair it up with the casual look like the cool guy pictured above. 

This guy is a little bit more dressed up, but still exhibits a cool, non-chalant look.  Simple patterns with brighter colors to accent certain parts of the outfit.  Nice touch. 

Whether you’re looking for a casual or dressy look, chinos are a win-win play, and should be a staple in your closet no matter what season.

  1. Very good points.

    Cost minimalisation (British spelling, because they are so sleek) is key. And to add to your list of stores with good prices…wait, first a DISCLAIMER: I no longer favor Express. I think the store has average clothes, overdone merchandise and the customers that consume their product, not to mention their printed tee disgust me. But their producer pants are usually of decent quality, affordable price and can double for a night out or at work. Currently rocking a great pair of grey express producer slacks to work and at night I can remove the button down and replace with a v-neck for a less businessy approach. Also they have chinos as you are referring which can do the same…good article!
