Fashion Basics: Chinos
Bozeman is basically casual when it comes to dress, but I was eventually mandated to wear a jacket or a tie for this radio gig. I guess a jacket or tie makes me sound better on-air. Slightly more than a month of wearing jacket AND tie, the boss asked me to tone the formality down. I opted for jeans and jacket over chinos and tie.
Let’s break down the basics of chinos: (Research by Ella Bing)
Chino cloth is a twill fabric, originally made of 100% cotton. The most common items made from it, trousers, are widely called chinos. Chinos are worn as a relaxing ensemble that holds its style and comfort as a top priority.
The Color: Khaki is a color. Chinos are a pair of pants. With that said, wear your chinos in as many colors as humanly possible. Women will appreciate that. The more insecure man, will become jealous.
Pockets: A good pair of chinos have only four pockets, two up front and two on your rear. Anymore and trouble starts to brew.
Wrinkling: Light wrinkling is a common trait of a pair of chinos, so embrace it.
Pleats: Please don’t…just no, don’t do it.
