    By Andy Gilchrist Let’s look at the origins of trousers, and then we’ll have a better understanding when we discuss the specifics of Chinos and Khakis. A HISTORY of TROUSERS: Trousers are an outer garment for covering the body from the waist to the ankles, and are divided into sections to...

    Long time lurker here, first time poster out of desperation. I, like others, am on the quest for the ultimate pair of fitting khakis. I am tall (6'4") with an athletic build looking for khakis with a relatively larger leg opening that is not tapered, preferably 18". Not looking for a blousy...

    For the several years, I've whined about the diminishing availability of long-rise khakis & wool slacks. Last night I Googled available options, somehow thinking that the same search I've done many times would yield different results. Curiously, Lands' End popped up, but I just knew it was a...

    Hi, This is my first post. It's also the first time I plan on wearing a blazer. It's a dark blue, lightly patterened jacket, which (in my opinion) fits me reasonably well. But I am aware of its downsides. Although it's not a "classical navy blazer," the typical matching trousers would be khaki...

    I've been wearing Bills M2 size 34, but never been quite happy with the fit (too baggy). I'm really about a 33 waist anyway. I've been wanting to try a 33, or even a 32, to see if I could get a trimmer overall fit. Today I did, and they were much better. The 33 is much smaller overall than...

    Hello, I've seen several merchants (J. Press, Ben Silver, Kevin's Catalog) offering khakis made from "Khyber cloth," which seems to be a summerweight fine twill made from Egyptian cotton. Unfortunately, none of these merchants have stores in Chicago, so I haven't seen any of these pants in...

    Hello. As I approach my 40th birthday, I feel it is time for me to start dressing less like a 50s rebel (white T-shirts, cuffed LEVI'S, and Converse All-Stars), and more age appropriate. Now I have plenty of ultra-causal/rebel 50s clothing, and I am building a good collection of 50s clothing...

    Hi, I thought it would be less painful to jump in, rather than dip my toe on the first post, so here we go... :icon_smile: I recently became nostalgic for my old ribbon belt as a kid (sailboats!), and decided to look into getting a new one (or a few). I had no idea that this type of item is so...

    Could I please get a formal definiton for khakis vs. chinos because all I have to go on is what different stores choose to label either "khakis" or "chinos". From Askmen.com, the I got the difference stated as khakis being of a more casual style (e.g. with pocket flaps over the back pockets)...
