Basic Pieces Every Guy Needs. Part Five

The Chino and Pant

The Chino is a classic. A must have. Chino cloth is a twill blend, primarily with cotton whereas the regular pant will have different blends including stretch. Its that pant that bridges classy and casual. It gives off that air of young professionalism accompanied with that laid back look of a holiday by the sea or an escape to the mountains in the Fall and Winter.

ASOS Slim Fit Chino


Chinos come in different widths at the ankle, but by far the slim straight leg or skinny leg would look the most modern and put-together. Just like jeans, be sure that they aren’t too baggy but fit good around the thigh and gluteus maximus.

Wear with your favorite (snug) hoodie and oxfords, rolled up at the leg, for a more relaxed look or with your new fav knit sweater, and then straight at the leg with boots when its cold outside or with dress shoes for a more professional approach. You can never go wrong with these and they’ll mature you in only the best way possible. And again, dont be afraid to experiment with different looks for this, whether its pairing it with a simple graphic tee, boat shoes and massive wool scarf or a blazer too.  Its worth mentioning too, but if you do roll up the pant be sure to wear no-show socks, or on the other extreme wear socks that have a fun pattern or come in fun colors.
