An Overview of Chinos and Trousers (S01E09)

The Ninth Episode of The Denim & Boots Podcast

In last week’s episode, we talked about Jake’s all-time favourite subject within the world of heritage style (that’s leather). This week, we’re talking about something else he actually likes more than denim, and that’s chinos and trousers.
