    What to do with green chinos?

    I brought a pair of these http://cdnd.lystit.com/photos/2012/0...dium_card.jpeg green Boss Orange chinos months ago and still haven't worn them once. The fact that they aren't slim fit means they don't look great rolled up with boat shoes. Also the colour is bright. Any suggestions of how to wear them? Otherwise should I just cut my losses and pay to have them made into shorts?

    Have you considered taking them to a tailor to get slimmed down - then you could roll them. I like the look of them for summer.

    White oxford shirt and penny loafers. Slim them down at a tailor, roll them up and you've got the definition of summer prep.

    Or, save them for part of a more autumnal look perhaps? Might work. Maybe. Just an idea.

    Bit thin for autumn sadly but perfect for summer. What can be done to have them slimmed down? Sorry I'm not an expert on tailoring. Definitely think that could work. Also what sort of cost would it be? Brought them for 45 in the sale thinking I had a bargain but looks like I'll need to invest a few .

    Ask your tailor to taper them, they can do it from the knee down or the whole leg, they'll pin it for you so you can get it exactly right. It's a pretty simple and cheap job (maybe 15 or so?).

    Sounds good thanks a lot. Should I go to a more upmarket tailor or will even simple high street one be able to do the job?
