If we’ve talked about it on the blog before, we’ve talked about it, well, plenty of times. There’s going to come a time, once again, this summer when you’ve got to step out in tailored style… wearing a pair of stylish pants, all in spite of the heat. The pants in question you should be wearing? Well, that part, to me, is easy: The Bonobos Lightweight Stretch Chinos are a go-to style move that should keep you looking sharp and staying plenty cool for the rest of summer, and that’s an understatement.
You’re hopefully well-aware that Bonobos makes some of the best men’s style essentials across each of the four seasons, from one of the best lightweight jackets to the best stretch jeans, but this new pair of breezy pants might be the best of the bunch — for right now, at least. The key with these stylish summer pants really is right in the name: The Bonobos Lightweight Stretch Chinos live up to that billing, and then some.
Crucially, the Bonobos Lightweight Stretch Chinos truly are a stretchy blend of polyester, rayon, cotton and spandex for ease of movement and a hand feel that’s a step up from even the brand’s classic Bonobos Stretch Washed Chinos 2.0 (those might already be one of your favorite pairs of pants, as luck would have it).
Helpfully when it comes to the Bonobos Lightweight Stretch Chinos, you can also take your pick from three cool-as-can-be colors, including the ever-versatile Dark Surf as worn above. Beyond that, you can pair up each set with everything from a white short-sleeve henley — for high-low casual style — to a crisp Oxford shirt. To round things out nicely, you can score the Bonobos Lightweight Stretch Chinos for under $100. The next time you want to beat the heat in style, this pair might just be your best bet.
