I tend to ring in spring and summer in several different ways, from cold beer to a stylish T-shirt in my rotation, and you know what pairs well with both of those essentials? A pair of the best men’s chinos, a seasonal staple that can actually be worn in any season — but one that’s at its best when worn as part of your new spring and summer wardrobe. And Todd Snyder’s 5-Pocket Chinos are the latest and greatest pair up for consideration. The best chinos for men are versatile — these are highly versatile (note the slim fit and jean-like construction). The best chinos for men are highly stylish — note the cool range of colors.
And the best chinos for men are, well, these ones. Just as Todd Snyder makes one of the best overshirts for men or one of the most essential cashmere sweaters out there, so too does he come through with an essential pair of classic pants for men, the kind you’re going to want to wear all summer long. And whether it’s the casual-yet-sharp design (similar to denim) or the 11 colorways from which to choose from, you’re getting what just might be considered your new favorite pair of pants.
SHOP: The Todd Snyder Slim-Fit 5-Pocket Chinos
As with all things Todd Snyder, it all starts with the fabric and construction. In this case, the Todd Snyder Slim-Fit 5-Pocket Chinos start with a cotton-polyester-lycra fabric blend, which means they’ve got enough stretch to wear as you work from home or explore a favorite part of your hometown (yes, you can and should wear them to either the coffee shop or the brewery, folks!). The stretch cotton twill fabric is also garment-dyed for a nice, comfortable feel right out of the box.
And they wouldn’t be some of the best chinos for men without a cleanly tailored fit, the kind that looks great with everything from your favorite T-shirt to a classic denim shirt. Heck, you can even wear these tailored chinos more casually with one of the best hoodies for men — how great is that sort of versatility, ehh? The fact that they’re built like jeans is crucial in adding to that utility — wear ’em with everything from canvas sneakers to your favorite chukka boots, too. Of course, it’s going to be tough to decide between the cool-as-heck colorways on hand, including Surplus Olive as seen above. Whichever pair you go with though, you’re getting some excellent bang for your buck (they’re $148 at Todd Snyder), and the type of go-anywhere style potential you crave. Who could say no to that?
