Boot-Cut Chinos

It's bad enough that boot-cut jeans (which are, let's face it, bell bottoms) made it out of the '70s. For jeans this style is past-peak, but for any other trousers it's particularly unwelcome. This deep navy pinstripe chino from Banana Republic would be great with a straight leg, but they just had to give it some disco fever, didn't they? This relatively new arrival is already on sale, and I hope they understand why. If not for the skinny knee you could wait until they hit the $20 rack, grab a pair and get a tailor to fix them.
