We’ve made our chino shorts smack-bang in the middle of smart-casual. In smooth twill they’ll style up a treat, while the drawstring elasticated waistband is all comfort. Try yours with a knitted polo on casual days and smarten up with a popover shirt for at-ease elegance.
Look for a high percentage of cotton in the composition so they’ll be breathable in warm weather. You might also like a shot of stretch for extra flex. We’ve add some TENCEL™ to ours, a soft and more sustainable fibre that also wicks away moisture to keep you cool and dry.
Chino shorts come in all sorts of fits. Our advice for a modern profile is pair that’s just the right side of relaxed in fit (not skin-tight, but not baggy either) and a length that hits a couple of inches above your knee.
