post #31 of 53

I can't tell from the picture. It looks like they're British Tan colored, but I can't tell what the material is.

Is a khaki tux the same as a chino tux?

Khaki colored is a subset of cotton twill pants.

Khaki colored wool or linen pants aren't khakis but blue cotton twill pants are chinos.

No, because we're not talking about the definition of chino falling within the definition of khaki, we're talking about khaki having two different, but perfectly valid, definitions. A better diagram would be two unconnected circles, one with both khaki and chino in it, and one with just khaki.

"Khaki" does not have a larger meaning than chino, it has multiple meanings, one of which is virtually identical to chino and one of which is entirely unrelated to that previous use of the word. The graph you use would be applicable to something like square and rectangle- all squares fall within the definition of rectangle, but the definition of rectangle encompasses more than just squares. In this case, we're not talking about one definition that encompasses a subcategory, we're talking about two entirely different definitions, one of which is virtually identical to another term and one of which is unrelated.

Khaki has two separate meanings, not one definition that encompasses both.

Khaki (1), as a plural noun (khakis), refers to a garment. ie, pants made from a tight cotton twill.
Khaki (2), as a noun or adjective, refers to a color. The color was named after the original British army garment.

Chino, as a plural noun (chinos), refers to pants made from a tight cotton twill.

And chino, as a singular noun, refers to a dude from China or from some place were the people look like they are from China or to a pair of chinos worn with one leg rolled up because the wearer has only one leg and / or is trying to steal your bike.

I have always wondered what a pant would look like. Is the plural defined by the two legs, or do you have to remove half of block as well? And then how do you half it, side by side or front to back?

Get that crudely photoshopped western propaganda out of here. The Supreme Leader had perfect teeth.
