Chinos are available in numerous amounts of styles, colours and cuts – which can make things a little difficult when it comes to picking your own pair. It can be tempting to make a smart guess when selecting your size, but this is more complicated than debating whether you need a t-shirt in a medium or a large, and we recommend you recruit a bit of help to measure your legs and waist properly before you buy your chinos. Either from a spouse or (arguably better) a tailor.
It is important chinos fit properly for two reasons. One: to ensure you don’t look like an idiot. And two: due to chinos having a military background. Inspired by khakis, Chinos became a staple of the American army. This background as a uniform means they are considered much smarter than jeans, so they need to fit you perfectly.
Here is our simple guide on how your chinos should fit, from your waist to your thighs and lastly, the general length.
WHICH CHINOS FOR WHICH OCCASION?
Generally, chinos are considered smart casual, but if you’re not sure if you’ve gone too smart (or not smart enough) with your trousers, a good trick is to check your pockets.
Flat pockets on the back are considered more casual. Also, the thicker/heavier the material of your chinos, the more casual they are.
DO CHINOS STRETCH LIKE JEANS AROUND THE WAIST?
Short answer: no. Typically chinos shouldn’t stretch around your waist. You want the chinos to fit perfectly around your waist without falling down and needing a belt. You also don’t want the waist to be too tight, making the chinos uncomfortable. If you need to go for a bigger size to get the right length then a belt is acceptable. Or, better yet, get a tailor to have the waist taken in. Chinos should be snug but comfortable around your waist, with no fear of them dropping down even without a belt.
For chinos, the waist will sit lower than suit pants but should hit exactly where the waist of your jeans should be (between the upper and mid-hip bone area).
