Hi smile.gif

I bought these swesone pants from Ralph Lauren store today.
They are called "Preston Pants Hudson Tan".

Would these be classified as Chinos, as well?

Thanks

Chino refers to the cloth the pants are made of. Chino cloth is a twill fabric, usually made of 100% cotton but
sometimes cotton-synthetic blends.

Zip fly with button closure and interior extended button tab Angled hand pockets at the front, split-besom pockets at the back Flat front, straight narrow leg. Washed for a timeworn, vintage appeal Ralph Lauren’s embroidered pony accents the back right pocket 100% cotton. Machine wash. Imported

Is that chino?

If you can see diagonal parallel ribs in the cotton fabric (twill) it is most probably chino cloth.
In common usage most people call just about any cotton pants "chinos "or "khakis" although
khaki really refers to a color.

By diagonal, I'm guessing you mean this?

So it's a chino?

Yes. Without touching the cloth, I'm thinking you may be safe in calling it a chino.

Chino is a type of twill cloth usually made of 100% cotton. I have found most chino cloth to be a finer twill than other twills such as drill twill.

I usually consider chino cloth to be lighter weight and a finer weave than other twills.

To be extra, extra safe, I suggest buying a second pair, cutting it up, and sending pieces to at least three (preferably five) university chemistry labs for detailed analysis.

Would it be ok to send to a college chemistry lab, or does it have to be a university?

Would it be ok to test fabric samples at home using this...

...to determine chino or not.
