DETAILS explains the Rules Of Khakis on the April issue of the magazine. Khaki Pants, as most of you already know, are the classic Summer Pants. That means Men should have at least a pair during the summer. Owning 2 pairs couldn’t hurt either.
COLORS — Tones from stone to tan. Light or faded khakis are perfect for Sundays while darker colors are good for office work.
LENGTH — Anything the hits the ankle or breaks slightly at the hem would be most preferable.
POCKETS — Classic pairs have 4 pockets. 2 in the front and 2 in the back. Don’t be afraid to get some with slanted pockets for a leaner look.
CUT — Straight leg cuts with a slight low rise would be your best bet.
MATERIAL — If it says “wrinkle-free” it’s not khakis. They should be 100% cotton, washed twills and poplins.
CUFFS — Practice the balance of uneven and neat cuffs. 1 inch wide then fold over 2 or 3 times then scrunch at the end.
