Weekend Casual Trousers

When the weekend comes its time to dress down into your casuals, a lot of young lads live in track suit bottoms or Jeans hanging of their bottoms, not a good look to me, when I see young lads in track suit bottoms it looks like they are wearing a big rompers suit, no style no class, what you need my friend is chinos or khakis as the Americans call them, they are a twill cotton material similar to denim but not as curse, they were invented to be worn by soldiers in hot climates, the American soldiers made chino`s stylish when they came over during WW2, from there they became the first trousers for casual wear and still are today one of the most worn trousers throughout the world, Chinos and khakis are great for weekend dress they are a smarter alternative to jeans, with Jeans there are certain clubs or restaurant’s where you can’t wear jeans, with chinos and khakis you can dress them up with a blazer or dress them down with a simple white T-shirt, so with chinos and khakis you have an item that can be worn for most occasions.

Chinos and Khakis also come in many styles, from regular fit to slim and skinny fit, the colours are like the rainbow you can get pinks, yellows, Purples, but me I play it safe I go for a nice tan or sandy colour I keep it classy, to me yellow trousers are for the fucking circuses, not going to the pub looking like coco the clown, my style I like to get a tapered fit my self, skinny ones no thank you, bag fit erm no way, clean stylish lines that’s me every day, so let’s have a look at some of the very best chinos and khakis, remember if there any pieces you like simply click on the image it will take you through to the website where you can buy them.
