    Chinos inseam accuracy?

    I haven't worn chinos for some years (went the jeans way), but thought I would now go back to them.

    Unfinished chinos - wash before cuffing?

    Hi everyone. I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. J. Crew's Essential Chinos have been my go-to casual pant for quite some time. I've always bought them at the store, however, so they've been uncuffed. I finally bought two pairs unfinished from the J. Crew website. Would I would...

    Khakis vs. Chinos

    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)...
