chinos, khaki’s, cotton trousers- whatever you want to call them- they are essential, a need, a must! easy, casual, simple, and a classic!

chinos come in all shapes and styles- skinny, slim, straight, relaxed or wide legged- light weight, twill, canvas, washed or broken in cotton. make them your own- roll them, fray them, patch them, paint them. something for everyone! timeless, season less, all- american style all year round!

easy with a grey tee or grey sweatshirt. casual with a blue or white shirt. simple for work with a blazer or a sweater. classic anytime with a trench. for those of you with lots of chic- wear in the evening with a tuxedo jacket, black tie and velvet stubbs and wootton slippers. chic, chic, chic!
