Yes I am picking a pair of pink chinos, and no I am not kidding in the slightest. See, over a bottle of rosé during a Memorial Day jaunt to the beach, I rediscovered a simple summer style truism: vacations are about being relaxed and playful. Playful for me means the color pink–like the wine I’m drinking and the meat I’m eating. And relaxation is perfectly captured in these soft, lightweight chinos by Riviera Club. Comfy enough to wear rolled up for a barefoot ramble on the sand and solid enough to pair with Vans for a beer run. And, you never know, I might have such a time with these pants of the 4th of July I’ll end up wearing them home for a little vacation in the office.
