Chino & Khaki Pants Fit Guide – Men’s Clothing Fit Guide
– Hi, I’m Ashley Weston. I’m a celebrity menswear stylist. This video is part of my Men’s Clothing Fit Guide. To see the other articles and videos in this series, visit this link or click here. Alright, so let’s talk about how your chinos should fit. Let’s start with the waist and seat of your chinos. So, like all your pants, you wanna make sure it fits perfectly around your waist so that you don’t need a belt to hold them up.
Like your jeans, you want your chinos waist to sit a little lower than where your suit pants would. So somewhere between mid to upper hipbone area, that’s where you want them to be. The butt area, or seat, of your chinos should lightly hug your butt and not be too tight or too saggy. If it feels like you’re gonna split your pants when you sit down or bend over, they’re way too tight. If it looks like you’re carrying a big load in your pants, just looks like a really droopy saggy butt, then make sure to pull up your pants or try another brand. And if that doesn’t work, then you gotta start doing some squats to build up that butt area.
Or take it to your tailor and have him take in, him or her, take in the seat. Or you can do both. No woman will ever complain if you have a nice firm booty. Moving down to the thighs, they should fit comfortably without feeling like they’re pulling at the knees when you’re walking. You should be able to pinch a minimum of one inch of fabric but no more than an inch-and-a-half of fabric on either side of your thigh.
If you can pinch more than that, then try a different style chino or, if possible, see if you can go down a size. As a last resort, you can get a tailor to slim the legs, but the cost is usually not worth it. And lastly, how long should your chinos be? Unlike your jeans, you always want to default for chinos at a slight to no break. This will look sharp and compliment every body type and height. So that’s how your chinos should fit.
