Wait, what is so horrible about navy chinos again? I guess I missed this. I primarily avoid khaki now in order to avoid looking like a schoolboy or Best Buy employee -- and navy pants have helped me in this regard.
But then you look like a mall cop! ... ?? Choose your poison.
I use to be the biggest supporter of navy pants. I now find that they often provide too much contrast and can make a fit look unbalanced. They can be worn well, but are often not. YMMV.
Thanks. Maybe this has something to do with more a more colorful MC style, I'm thinking. If you look at a web site like COS, you'll see a big part of my winter style in a nutshell. It's pretty boring: navy pants, some type of black shoe or boot, white shirt in a variety of fabrics, black/navy/gray coat of some kind. Summer fits are not that much different, I see now -- unstructured monochrome blazers, mostly -- so luxe (lol) and often interesting as far as materials and go, but not a lot of color variation.
