Alpha loves his GAP slim fit jeans, but one can’t exist on amazing jeans alone. You need to step outside the denim box. You need a pair of pants that are casual, comfortable, and refined enough to dress up and down. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro presents the chino! They have a difference flavor and flare than jeans, and Alpha has been going nuts over his chinos.
For simple, fun-in-the-sun, clean casual, he pairs his chinos with double monks. He likes to go sockless with his monk straps. But, you can also ‘look’ like you’re going sockless with special socks — with flames! He got them from The GAP. Next, he cuffs the chinos with two small cuffs. He thinks it looks cool and dapper.
Three Levels of Dressing Up and Down the Chinos + Monks
- He pairs gray chinos and double monks (sockless) with a simply navy tee shirt and matching fabric belt. Top it off with a great pair of shades.
- Throw on a white polo to take it up a notch. You can also use a short sleeve button-up. You can mix-and-match and get creative.
- Go button-up shirt to take it up one more notch.
