Men’s Chinos – Chinos are maybe the most versatile pants you can wear. Chinos are basically cotton twill pants. A cotton twill fabric is a cotton that is weaved in a pattern with visual diagonal lines along the threads and weave. The weave of the chinos makes the garment both durable and comfortable. Men’s chinos have a military origin and their history goes back the military uniform of British officers in northern Colonial India in the mid-19th century, where the word khaki (from the Hindi word for dust, used to describe the uniform’s soil color) starts to appear. Khakis, or khaki trousers, is a term sometimes used interchangeably with chinos, although some may argue there are slight differences. Some 50 or so years later, during the Spanish-American war, American troupes stationed in the Philippines got in contact with this type of trouser, and this is when they got the name chino. The American soldiers allegedly liked the trousers, brought them back to the US and their popularity rose quickly thereafter.
