Review: Woolrich Flannel-Lined Chinos

I call chinos khakis. I don't know why, but chino never really made it into my dictionary. Even if the chino is navy blue, to me, it's a pair of khakis. Finding good fitting khakis has always been a bit of a problem for me. Finding good fitting jeans always seems easy, khakis on the other hand, is like trying to find a pinnacle for which you can't even get to the base camp. The worst are the ones that balloon around your butt. Bleh! In general, most of my khakis have sucked. Of course, I hadn't gotten Woolrich's Flannel-Lined Chino until last Christmas.


They're heavy, giving them a good fall against your leg, well-cut, as in a bit of a high rise with nice straight legs, and has anyone mentioned warm? The sew is very good, and they will probably last me quite a few more winters. Of course LL Bean makes a good flannel-lined chino, as I'm told by my father, but since I've found something that works...

Parting thoughts: I live near Woolrich PA. A factory tour really should be in order.

  1. i feel you on the assessment of khakis these days. seems like brands havent fully adapted them for our crowd yet, as one would've hoped...
