Normally, we’d forgive you for not thinking of chinos as the most exciting thing on the planet. But as we wind into full-on winter weather, we’re more and more interested in the idea of utility– and, admittedly, more and more interested in putting as many hardworking layers between us and the elements as possible. So when we caught a glimpse of these new tugboat-gear-inspired chinos from Blackbird, it didn’t take much to convince us that these would soon become a wintertime staple. In three classic (read: rugged) shades, you might even find yourself buying two pairs (Blackbird even offers a discount if you do)…which, honestly, would probably be enough to merit you the title of Chino Enthusiast. No shame in that. Get them here.
