Chinos and Khakis Men's Shorts
A staple of any man's summer wardrobe, Chinos and khakis men's shorts are more popular than ever. Chino is a cotton cloth that has been used for men's trousers and shorts since the middle 19th century. Chino is available in a range of colours as well as striped and is suitable for both everyday wear and smarter events such as summer barbeques or birthdays. Khaki refers to a colour of cloth. Khaki was first used by the military and is now a classic men's summer wear colour.
Regular or standard fit chino or khaki shorts sit above the knee. The sky's the limit when it comes to design, with regular chinos available in all shades from classic, easy tones to vibrant prints and even striped shorts .
Slim fit chinos and khaki shorts offer a sleeker more contemporary look. The slimness of chinos can vary. Some designs offer a leg hugging drainpipe effect, whilst others opt for a subtler tapering of the regular fit design. As with regular fit chinos, the slim fit designs are available in a full pallet of colours and prints.
Loose chino and khaki shorts are designed for comfort. The loose designs tend to sit lower on the leg, often beneath the knee. Loose fit chinos tend to have numerous pockets and are great for long summer days spent trekking or are comfortable enough for everyday wear.
Three quarter length chino and khaki shorts sit between the knee and ankle. These tend to be loose fit and comfortable. The baggier design will allow for greater air circulation to keep your legs cool.
Pure Cotton chinos are a step up from regular designs. Available in a range of subtle colours, pure cotton chinos are ideal for any summer event that requires a classier, more sophisticated look. Pure cotton chinos look great with smart boat shoes and will feel much softer.
