Ladies, there was that fleeting flirtation that the fash pack had that combats were cool again (puhlease) but I think the chino look maybe a winner.. From the lovely range of pastel colours in Uniqlo for both sexes to ASOS’s high waisted chinos in pale pink, mint and lavender to the classic Gap slim cut variety, they’re kind of perfect for channelling that Hamptons vibe on this side of the pond. Lighter weight than jeans and..if styled correctly can either be humorously preppy or Shoreditch chic, give them a go. Deck shoes optional.
For a quick lesson in sartorial Upper East side elegance, there's only one man for the job..
No..You're eyes are not deceiving you, he's working the traditional chino with a red tailcoat.
It takes a brave man to work lemon, purple and a pink and blue combo shirt but he's certainly working it.
