+1 on the Gap chinos. I have several pairs and they are not skinny fit at all.
Have you also considered cords? It's getting to the wrong time of year for them, but you cen even get them in a 'jeans' cut in a lot of places.
i will go for the chinos in regular fit, as after seing the banana republic relaxed fit chinos, ill pass on them.
they're way to big and baggy to look barely stylish
1) What colour chinos are advised? besides the common tan colour , like these http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/goods/071201#colorSelect
2) What tops suit chinos best? is it just plain sweaters , shirts, and/or both together?
it will mainly be for evening, weekend day time wear
3) Besides the previously recommended shoes of penny loafer, deck shoes, converse, what other shoe styles, suit chinos? any particular colour shoes?
thanks for all the detailed replies, this site is great!
i wear jeans in the evenings/weekends when i am out of the flat, but when im in side i wear joggers or sweatpants, and sometimes wear them outside.
as they are most comfortable,
i also have 2 pairs of 'combats' like these http://tinyurl.com/blupaba ,
I usually shop at Zara, Massimo Dutti, etc, as i prefer the designs as opposed to the younger 16-21 year olds shops in Topman, River Island, Jack Wills and the like
at the same time, im not rich so cant spend too much
as im 25 now, i would prefer not to wear joggers/sweatpants,
but i am a bit lost where to look and what to look for?
i want essentially, a casual trousers/bottoms like the combats but without all the pockets. i dont want smart trousers that you would wear formally
tell me, what do guys of 25 from the uk wear besides jeans when out or even indoors? not bright or loud colours just mild ones, like cremes/khakis/black, etc
as round here jeans are all i seem to notice
As i am from England would prefer comments from people who live here.
I have 2 weeks off work now so want to buy it all now
In lieu of jeans I'd reccomend something like this
they also come in the 514
