The chinos need to be wide enough so they hang well, and uninterrupted, without catching onto your calves etc.

This makes sense. I was a fan of having my pants tapered quite a bit. But ever since I've started wearing loafers and more expensive/dressier shoes in general (just started my first job), I've become a fan of a more relaxed fit. So, perhaps not having the legs tapered so much will solve the problem.

Thanks for all the great suggestions guys! I think my next purchase is going to be a pair of BB milano advantage chinos and I'll check out Bill's khakis and Polo Prestons as well.

Any cotton chino/khaki will wrinkle or crease to some extent. Better fabrics will prevent stretching resulting in baggy knees and butt. But you will have to pay a premium for that quality. Here is a review of some by The Silentist http://thesilentist.com/post/42511164368/review-j-lawrence-khakis-of-carmel-khaki-trousers

Just in case anyone is interested. I found a (two-part) solution to my problem.

 

1. As many of you pointed out, if the pants are too narrow/tapered below the knees, that exacerbates the problem. So, I bought a pair of chinos from Gap, and didn't get the legs tapered, as I had been doing in the past. The knees still wrinkle, but only to the extent you would expect.

 

2. I found the perfect pair of chinos - at least in terms of what I want out of a chino - the Ralph Lauren Suffield Chino. It is lighter than any pair of chinos I've ever owned/tried (other RL chinos, BR, Gap, etc.) plus it fits perfectly (more on the relaxed side).

I have been a Gap customer for ages and it has much to do with the length of the pants rather than the material. My chinos have lasted for years and never really had much creasing.
