It was one of the more popular pants for US dudes in the 1950s and 60s and the slacks of choice worn in schools because jeans weren't allowed. Back then they were known as khaki which referred to the pants most common colour.
Historically the first chinos were worn in the US military as issue attire. The cotton pants were made in China and so-called as it is the Spanish word for Chinese. These military chino had no pleats and tapered at the bottom of the leg to save on fabric.
The chino were military issue until the end of World War II but have emerged today as a stylish casual pant that reflects the seasons, are available in a range of colours and complement your wardrobe whether you style up or dress down.
