How to wear Chinos
Just as with other types of garments, the style and fit have varied over time. For instance, the fit on chinos in recent years have been much slimmer than of the original ones. Regardless of current trends, there are a few things worth considering. Color-wise, there is always the most classic khaki or navy chino. You can’t really go wrong with neutral and earthy tones, but here is also your chance of expressing yourself based on your personal preferences. A mid to high rise is generally more flattering and definitely advisable if you plan to wear the chinos with a sport coat. Men’s Chinos are probably the most versatile pants you can wear, easily dressed up with a sport coat, shirt, and tie, paired with some well-polished oxford shoes, and equally easily worn with just a t-shirt and sneakers. This means they work excellently in most modern work (or work from home) or school conditions as well as a go-to option off-work. You can have your John Henric chinos hemmed to your preferred length but also wear them rolled up. Jacket, shirt, knitwear, t-shirt; chinos open up for almost endless opportunities.
