Chinos. We know what you’re thinking, “My dad wears those,” “too preppy,” or “Is that where Ryan from the OC is from?” Well, shake those thoughts and think again because we’ve got Dockers in store and they’ve been in the khaki game for over 25 years, so they know what they’re doing! If the classic look and fine craftsmanship of a pair of Dockers doesn’t have you convinced, here are 3 reasons you need to add a pair of chinos into your Fall wardrobe.
1. Comfort. Most chinos come in a variety of thickness’s and weight’s. If you’re looking for something to keep you warm in our freezing Canadian winters, then grab a pair of flannel lined Dockers. If you’re looking for something that will be good for all 4 seasons, then stick to the basic. The cotton of which these beauties are constructed is super soft on your skin and easy to break in to make your own.
2. Versatility. Got a job interview? Chinos paired with a tie are a classic American look. Gotta head to Grandmas for dinner? Throw a button-up on and you’re good to go. Wanna go hang with the guys at the skate park? Dockers are breathable, relaxed and easy to move in. Got a date? Throw on a cardigan and you’re sure to win hearts. We think you get the point. There isn’t much that won’t match with a pair of chinos.
3. Variety. Be bold, be classic, be you. There are a lot of routes you can go with a pair of chinos. Get them in straight leg, go baggier or go for a skinny fit. Grab them in bold colours or go for a classic khaki. Whichever pair you choose, know that you are the man that defines them! Add pop to an ordinary outfit with coloured chinos, roll them up or tuck them into boots. A good pair of chinos is like a great pair of denim, but better! Chinos have been around for over 25 years and aren’t going out of style any time soon. A good pair will last you a few seasons, if not more.
The collection of Dockers we have in this season was inspired by “a journey to uncover what it means to be a man today,” exposing the work of men who lived their passions and have chosen character, conviction, commitment and purpose, as words they live by. Does this sound like you? We thought so! So come on down to Lavish&Squalor and let us help you choose the right pair for you!
