The Fit Of Smarter Chinos/Trousers
I've got a couple of events coming up that call for the smarter side of smart casual. So a suit is not required but smarter chinos.
What I want to know is whether people think it still looks smart enough and ok to wear quite closely cut chinos in a smarter outfit with proper shoes?
In summer it is a lot easier because I can wear a shirt/blazer and very slim (not skin tight) chinos with no break and loafers and this looks great.
But for the events coming up it will be colder and I want to wear a proper shoe like a brown or tan brogue. Do you think it would still be ok to wear very slim chinos with such shoes, or would it be better to go for a straighter and less closely cut pair of chinos?
By chinos, I do not mean thin cheap Topman style but a proper twill cotton heavier weight pair.
I personally think it is okay as I want to maintain a slim silhouette but still want to like to look classic - so I'll be wearing a Ralph Lauren shirt in blue, navy blazer and then some dark stone chinos - I just wondered other people's thoughts on this.
