This is How You Make Chinos Look Really Damn Stylish, According to Prince Harry

They're by 7 For All Mankind, and they won't cost royal-level dough.

People love the royals. Like, a lot. Like, a stalk-their-every-move kind of love. The kind of love where they pet you on the head and tell you they love you, just like they might their little sister. This is not exactly reasonable! But it makes sense. 

Part of what makes the royals loved so much is that they appear—appear—relatable. Almost like you, too, could be a royal! (You can't.) And part of what makes them relatable is what they wear. All this to say, this week, Prince Harry wore a pair of 7 For All Mankind khaki chinos and they looked good.

These specific pants, the Slimmy Chino in light beige, are a UK speciality, currently on sale for £129 (around P8,900). But there's a similar style in the US—a luxe sport version—on sale for $189 (around P10K). For something as fundamental as a pair of everyday jeans or khaki chinos, it's the sweet spot: They're not budget fabrics, and they'll actually hold up, should you choose to wear them every day. They're a step above the under $100 buys price-wise, but they'll also last longer.  

I'm not going to sit here and tell you that Prince Harry is a boundary-pushing style icon. But I will tell you that Prince Harry perhaps has the kind of famous-person style that real guys can—and should!—emulate. He's pretty basic, everything fits, and it's not too expensive.

As he's touring the world, shaking hands with the people, he must look and act the part. If he's not in a suit, he's in chinos and a button-down or sweater. It's what real, normal people would wear every day. And when it's done well, it's seriously stylish.
