Hi-- I recently bought a higher-end pair of slim chinos sight-unseen from the popular auction site, and the inseam is disappointingly shorter than I'd anticipated. When I try them on with a pair of ankle boots/Beatle boots, they actually don't look half bad--kind of a mod look, reminding me of the 1960s Sam & Dave 'Soul Men' record where they are wearing peg-leg trousers with the bottom hem above the top edge of their boots. My 17-yr-old daughter says they look cool; my wife thinks it's ridic. A quick check online shows that the "flood" look is in style when wearing brogues sockless--I'm not that guy, however. This also seems to be a collegiate look, and while I'm 6' and a trim 180 lbs, I am in my mid-40s. May I know your regarded opinions on wearing chinos with a just-below-the-ankle break for office casual applications? Thanks.
