To be elegant a man does not have to wear always a suit.
Often it takes a pair of chinos well matched with other item of clothing, like a blazer for a casual-chic look or absolutely casual with a cardigan or a sweater.
Chino pants comes in different colors, like blue navy, blue, beige and pastel colors. Chinos are at the basis of a classic smart-casual style even at the office or for every kind of working activity.
Even for the dapper man, they can represent the perfect alternative to wearing jeans. It’s a kind of pants that descends from khaki trousers, that were part of the uniforms of the English Army in Punjab. Due to its comfort and design, khakis were soon adopted by the soldiers as free time and summer dress uniform. The chinos we know today are a more elegant version of the khakis, which are still used as free time clothing, being them built with a ticker fabric that makes of khaki a very resilient garment, in addiction to be produced especially in color khaki.
Chinos instead are realized in linen or cotton, they can be pleated or flat-front and used indifferently in formal occasions along with a dress shirt and a tie, or worn under a polo shirt for casual dinners.
