Though the last year might have you fooled, the most important item in a man's wardrobe is actually a pair of chinos, not joggers.
This versatile and polished staple for spring and summer can elevate any casual outfit and looks great when paired with a simple tee, polo neck or smarter shirt.
But, if the thought of getting back into trousers with a less forgiving waistline has you unimpressed, we have found a solution: The Regular Fit Stretch Chinos pair from Marks & Spencer are a brilliant place to start (and they're only £19.50).
Why we rate them:
As the name suggests, the chinos have been designed with added stretch for ultimate comfort.
The trousers include an Active Waist design to ensure that the trousers move with you, allowing enough room to keep you comfortable all day and night (depending on how long you stay in the pub garden).
The cotton rich fabric is both soft and stylish, plus the new regular fit gives a flattering finish. A slim fit is also available.
They're also available in 12 different colourways, including navy, green, caramel and black, which is always a plus in our sartorial books.
And for only £19.50, you can't go wrong in adding them to your basket.
In fact, a quick scroll through the reviews will show you that men (or their other halves) have been so impressed with the affordable trouser that they've purchased multiple pairs.
What the reviews say:
With over 900 reviews, it's fair to say that the affordable chinos have been tried and tested.
