The chino. Developed in the mid-19th century for British and French military uniforms and known as khaki, it has since migrated into civilian wear. Pants of such a fabric gained popularity in the U.S. when Spanish-American War veterans returned from the Philippines with their twill military trousers. Today they are one of the most hot items with either casual and high fashion people. YOUR has chino pants of Scotch&Soda, Maison Scotch, and many more! It might be Fall/Winter soon, but we think our pictures of our staff in chino pants will get you warm after all.
