How to Pick the Right Sartorial Trousers: Dress Trousers and Chino

There's no doubt that trousers are a necessary part of any man's wardrobe. But with so many different style options available, it can be hard to know which pair is right for any given occasion. In this blog post, we'll break down the different types of trouser styles and offer some tips on how to select the perfect pair for any event. Whether you're dressing for a casual lunch or an important business meeting, we've got you covered. So read on and get ready to up your pant game!

Trousers come in many styles and forms, ranging from chinos to pleated trousers.

Chinos can be low or high-waisted and can be made in a wide range of fabrics and, as we shall see in this article, the choice of fabric depends on their fit.  High waisted trousers tend to be higher up the body, giving off a polished look, depending on their material and design.
Pleated trousers meanwhile will often feature raised waists and long legs that taper at the bottom while also having press creases along either side; they’re perfect for a formal occasion, or when you want to achieve a tailored professional look.

All types of trousers can help to define how an outfit looks and feels, so take some time to explore the different options available – each has its own unique style merits that should be taken into account when putting together your next look.

Defining the different types of trousers – from chinos to pleated trousers

Chino Trouser

Chinos are a classic sartorial staple, and for good reason. They’re incredibly versatile trousers that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. But what many don’t know is that there are two distinct types of chinos – low-rise and high waisted waistlines – which should be chosen according to the specific look you want to achieve. In this blog post, we’ll explore how these two different styles of sartorial trousers differ from each other, so you can make an informed decision when putting together your next outfit.

– High waisted chinos are sartorial trousers that offer a more polished, tailored look. With their higher waistline and tapered legs, they can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.

– Low-rise chinos, meanwhile, are sartorial trousers that feature a lower waistline. They’re perfect for a more casual look, as they have a relaxed fit with wider leg openings. While low-rise chinos are usually made of a more or less light cotton twill, depending on whether they are designed for winter or summer, high-rise chinos give the possibility to range from cotton to wool or a way more sophisticated wool-cashmere blends. 

As a sartorial connoisseur, we would highly recommend our Sand Stretch Cotton Twill and Blue Navy Cotton Gabardine for the summer months as they offer the perfect balance of breathability and structure. These lightweight cotton fabrics are ideal for keeping you cool and comfortable while still providing a polished and put-together look.

Knowing what type of trouser you need to create your desired look occasion-wise is an invaluable skill for any professional wardrobe.

Attending a business meeting requires the right attire. To dress appropriately, consider muted colors such as navy, beige or gray in any shade to create your outfit. You can choose navy blue pleated trousers, paired with a blazer in the same blazer fabric, or a cream-coloured pleated trouser with a dark blue double-breasted jacket. Be sure to pair them with a classically styled shirt in breathable or performance fabrics such as cotton or light linen. The addition of elegant but comfortable shoes will give you an old-fashioned look. If, on the other hand, the meeting has a more informal setting, tailored chinos paired with a shirt with a button-down collar and a soft jumper give a casual but elegant look. High waisted chinos have become increasingly popular in the corporate world due to their ability to combine sartorial class with functionality.

For an easygoing yet stylish look, opt for a pair of sartorial trousers crafted with Italian craftsmanship and a classic camp-collar shirt to get the perfect sartorial style.
