Lightweight Chinos

When it comes to warm weather staples, a pair of lightweight chinos should be topping your list. After all, man can't survive on raw denim alone. Cut from breathable, featherweight cotton in flattering fits with vintage-inspired detailing, they're as classic as they are comfortable. From Apolis' American-made version to the cotton/linen blend by Whillas & Gunn, they're easy to wear and come in a spectrum of colors. Sport them crisp and cuffed, with a shirt and tie to the office or rumpled and relaxed on vacation or the weekend. And like a good T-shirt, they get better with each wash.

Gant Rugger, $165
