Now that the sun is spending more time shining on the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time to shelve the heavy denim for at least the daytime. It’s chino season, and embracing new non-denim pants doesn’t mean you have to be pleated and plain.
We’ll break this up into two parts. The three easiest to wear colors or shades are featured today, with two more difficult to wear colors plus a pattern showing up tomorrow. These three will go with just about anything, and you don’t have to be a high-fashion type to pull them off. All are flat front, far from baggy, and under $45.00
From Left to Right at the top of the Page
LEFT: Classic Khaki – Alfani RED Label Stretch Slim Fit Chino – SALE $24.99 (Reg. $59.50)
Yes everyone has at least two or three pairs of plain ol’ Khaki’s in their closet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stand out with a well fitting pair of the updated classics. These Alfani RED pants at almost always on sale, but $24.99 for a pair of pants of this caliber is still a bargain. They’re slick, they’re smooth, they don’t blend in.
CENTER: Light Gray/Marble – Docker’s Signature Khaki D1 Slim Fit Flat Front – $36.00
You might have noticed that Docker’s have evolved. These D1’s are the most modern. The light slate gray is also a color that not many guys wear. Paired with a white shirt, navy tie, and affordable black blazer, you’ll look like you spent hundreds on your clothes.
RIGHT: White/Sail Gap Original Khaki – $44.50
Still one of the best buys in pants, The Gap Original Khaki might be plain in general, but it’s not when it’s pure crisp white. Wash them on warm with a good detergent, and stay away from ketchup.
Tomorrow: More difficult to wear shades for those of you who consider these to be blah.
