Here's a sneak peak at the Dr Denim Chino's that will be arriving sometime next week:
Chino pants gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1900s after military men returning from the Philippines after the Spanish-American War brought back their cotton military trousers.
These pants were originally made in China. "Chino" is the Spanish term for the Chinese, and most of the people who wear chino cloth, especially in the Philippines, are peasants (Camisa de chino); hence the fabric and these pants picked up the name.
The first chino's sold in the U.S. were U.S. Army military-issue pants, and in order to save fabric during WWII-era constraints, they had no pleats and were tapered at the bottom of the leg.
The modern chino washes and wears well, with minimal care required, and comes in several different colours...
Chino's are a staple in any man's wardrobe.
