I love the bomber jacket, t-shirt, and chinos look and every so often get a chance to do this with my clients. The sleeve length of the jacket is spot on – hitting at the bend of the wrist. I love the simplicity of the brown, black, and white color palette.
Pants are a little too big in the thigh and crotch area. It seems as though they’ve probably been worn-in, hence the bagginess due to stretching. In addition, a super knitpicky thing that always bothers me is floppy, long shoelaces.
How Chinos Should Fit
- They should fit normally around your waist with no need for a belt to hold it up.
- The seat, which is the butt area, should lightly hug your butt and not be saggy or very tight.
- They should be worn at normal length or possibly shorter, but never, ever longer.
How To Fix
Shoelaces – tuck them into your shoes or if you prefer to have them out buy a shorter pair of shoelaces. Shoelaces should be between 40-45” long for most low top sneakers. As for the chinos, my solution is:
- Throw them in the washer or wet the area if you don’t want to wash them, and then put in the dryer. This should shrink them just enough.
- If these are new, and not stretched out, then you probably should look for slimmer pants or get the thighs taken in by your tailor.
