in praise of chinos
« on: December 29, 2010, 05:27:06 PM »
Feel like the rise of the chino in popularity (again) is the death knell of the tight jeans look. Never been a look that I've been able to understand, especially from the angle of functionality, and there are WAY too many chunky wannabe kids (and adults for that matter) that look like absolute hell with their tight-ass jeans & muffin-top combo. Big mess. Next on the list of has-been trends that never should have been in the first place: vulcs.

I don't understand why people dont skate in chinos.
Jeans just don't function properly at all.
I dont recall ever putting on anything Southpole in my life.

agreed.

Chino's have been my standard for skating for the better part of the decade.  Never jumped on the skinny jeans wagon.  Target Merona ultimate classic 33x32 chinos were my default.  Unfortunately, they just changed the material and the fit.

I just bought some matix pants for 20 bucks, because my jeans had ripped. I must say, as much as i hate most people that skate in them, these are the most comfortable pants I've ever skated in.

Most of the really skinny jeans are soft and stretchy so I would imagine them to be pretty comfortable for skating. But in a different way than chinos.

I can't handle the tights look, but my pants legs have been slowly getting slimmer in the last couple of years.

In praise of chinos, these are the most comfortable and awesome pants I own:

Dunderdon P13. They look pretty slim in the picture but it's a fairly basic casual workwear cut, just a little slimmer than Dickies. The material is similar as well, cotton/poly blend, but softer.
take what small comfort there may be left
seize what you love and damn all the rest

I prefer chinos when the weather is really hot, it's all about jeans at any other time though. I need that slim cut as well because wide high waist dickies are gross.

No hatred for tight and slim jeans, per se, but MUCH hatred for the TREND of tight and slim jeans. Reason being, I live in America, where basically everybody and their grandmother is overweight. So, tight clothes get trendy and fat folks try to squeeze into tight clothes. Looks like hell. Also, those Dunderons looks awesome, but they're just a bit too pricey for me. Someday when I've hit it big, I'll be looking them up.

So dickies but 5 times the price?

Dickies but nicer. And I paid about the same amount for my pair on sale as a pair of Dickies normally cost here, which is around 60€ meaning $80

Chinos have always been around!
They are flaring up again, but they are definitely not the new "skinny jeans".
