How to wear chinos

A once hardworking military staple, the chino is now an AM-to-PM essential in every man's wardrobe. From classic black and timeless beige to modern shades and statement prints, out your season with ease thanks to these every-day heroes.

Keep your chinos casual and wear with an oversized pullover or simple polo for fuss-free weekend vibes. Roll up hems for extra points. For a creative 9 - 5 look, neatly tuck a printed shirt into slim-fit chinos and pair with an unstructured blazer. Team with lace-up brogues for the sharpest way to step up your sartorial style.

1 pair of chinos, endless outfits

Work, party, repeat in your favourite pair of chinos.

Minimalism has been on the rise for some time now, from the way we 'Marie Kondo' our apartments to the time we set aside to 'Headspace' our minds. So how about applying the same logic to our wardrobes? With a versatile staple like the Stuart chino and a few fresh styling spins, here's how to wear this timeless cut in four different ways.
How to wear chinos on vacation
Packing light is the number one rule if you want to be travel savvy. This makes the chino the seasoned traveller's top pick. Lightweight and adaptable, style chinos with a logo T-shirt for sightseeing during the day, then switch for a fancy printed shirt to Instagram the sunset with a craft beer in hand, come night.

How to wear chinos to a job interview
Not all job interviews are suited-and-booted affairs. Take advantage of a less formal setting to show off your coordination skills, and match your Stuart chinos with a graphic, long-sleeved shirt and leather brogues. Leave the first few buttons undone to reveal a colour-blocked T-shirt underneath, then pull the look together with a sharp leather belt.

How to wear chinos to a festival
Yes, it's all about the line-up, but there's no denying it's also about the outfits. There's an art to carefree, so start off on the right note with your Stuart chinos. Festivals are fun, so try out a colour-pop shade and pair with a long-sleeved printed T-shirt. A hooded bomber jacket is a festival essential, as are desert boots (avoid suede, unless you want ruined shoes) and a belt bag.

How to wear chinos on a night out
Every now and again, the mood sometimes strikes when you want an actual night out, rather than just drinks. When that happens, your favourite chinos can still make an appearance. Dial down the colour code and opt for moody tones. Black chinos, a dark, printed shirt and patent-leather loafers will keep things sophisticated.
