In a sea of broken-in, destructed, and sun washed summer chinos it’s good to see something a little more refined. The Percival Summer Chino toes the line between chino and trouser. Made of 100% cotton it features a tab front, etched buttons, and single button closures on the hip pockets. While these would look smashing with an oxford and tie, try pairing them with a refined polo and canvas sneakers for a smart yet relaxed look this spring/summer.

Bonobos Navy Seersucker Pants

We’re most accustomed to seeing seersucker in that default white/cream finish but it really shouldn’t have to be this way. Bonobos has a few variations but their navy “Midnight Garden” pants really stood out.

Left Field NYC Japanese Twill Khaki Chinos

Left Field NYC Japanese Twill Khaki Chinos
We’re officially in spring and that would normally mean it’s time to ditch the heavy fabrics and get relaxed for the warmer months ahead. That would be the case if it wasn’t snowing today here in NYC. The good thing is this gives you some more time to prepare. You’ll need some well-crafted chinos when the weather lightens up and this pair from Left Field is a prime choice. It’s made from 100% ringspun cotton Japanese twill with all the cutting and sewing done right in Los Angeles. The detailing is solid as the khakis feature a chain-stitched waist band, a front coin pocket and buttoned back pockets while the pocket bags are made from Japanese chambray. It’s all in the details, folks.
