    I was wearing chinos and my aunt said I look older and more mature...Several people tell me similar things.

    I want to stop wearing chinos for a while and go with nice jeans. Can you please post some high quality jeans and a shirt that goes well with the jeans but does not look too old...

    I hope this makes sense. I know 30 is not old but it feels bad knowing you are getting older. I just want to dress young! :)

    What kind of build do you have?

    Ideally, you want to go for a fitted look. Personally, I go with a pair of Dior 19cms and a BoO shirt. APC denim is also good. So is Gitman Brothers Vintage for shirts.

    First, chinos by themselves do not make you look older. However, the cut of the chinos and how they fit your body type might. Anything in a slimmer, more modern cut will make you look more youthful. People on these forums will likely say Nudie, APC, and the like. Personally they aren't my favorite (due to their fit, not their quality).

    On the more expensive side: AG Jeans (the softest I have ever found) is my favorite brand

    Cheaper Side: Levis, they have a plethora of fits and styles.

    In regards to shirts, just about any shirt can be paired with jeans. Again, it may be the fit, baggy shirts flatter just about no one. Look into tailored fit shirts, probably something (but not necessarily) with a button-down collar.

    Again I think APC or Dior will be too tight on you personally, but you are welcome to try them. The APC Rescue might be OK. BoO is not cheap, but it makes nice stuff. For $220, I would just get a custom tailored shirt. If you want to spend less, try J. Crew or better yet, Kent Wang. Only problem with Kent is his styles are pretty limited.

    Consider buying jeans from Uniqlo. Their jeans are cheap as dirt, and there is a wide range of cuts. Their shirts may work for you as well.

    I'm 28 and all I wear are various styles of Levi's. Once you nail down your size, it makes it so easy to buy different styles.

    I have and recommend the following:

    514 Jeans
    [​IMG]
    513 Blue
    [​IMG]
    511 Commuter Chinos
    [​IMG]

    Here are some shitty pics of me wearing:

    I've never felt the need to purchase anything beyond simple $50 Levi's as I don't find much, if any, improvement in durability or comfort in the +$200 pants offerings. Further, fit is everything, and it's often a crapshoot if purchasing various brands and styles online.

    Another option I haven't personally tried, but has been recommended to me by friends, are pants from http://www.bonobos.com/

    walk into hollister or abercrombie and grab a bunch of stuff...there ya go!!!

    but seriously, there have been some good points posted. why don't you post up a fit pic of what you would normally wear? It may just be the cut of the chinos. I'm 27 and need to start dressing a little better. I mainly wear jeans and a tshirt or woven. Surf through this site and you can get some great ideas specially in the "what are you wearing today" thread.
