Introduction to the material
Chino is a coarse fabric made entirely of cotton. It is most commonly used to make trousers also called chinos. Its history goes back to 19th Centuries when it was used to make uniforms of French and British soldiers. But at the present age, it is worn by almost everyone from all walks of life. Chinos for men can be used to produce a variety of styles.
Office / worker style
Chinos to be worn in the workplace are usually made of tougher and thicker fabrics. They provide a more relaxed fit than pants that fit well and create straight lines. Dark colored chinos give you the opportunity to try out different colors and styles (patterned, regular, etc) on shirts. Wearing a blazer can certainly give you a more stylish and masculine look. Also, make sure you wear socks with a lighter color.
Casual chinos for men are usually made from cheaper materials and can be combined with many styles of shirts so you should definitely keep these in your wardrobe. T-shirts, sweaters, cardigans and hoodies would also go well with these. All types of shoes ranging from joggers to sneakers would also go well.
The final verdict
Chinos gives you the freedom to experiment with different styles so you can find the perfect style that matches your mood and personality. So have an open mind and don't be afraid to play.
