With their shirts and ties already trimmed up for a younger customer it appears that Brooks Brothers felt it was time to give their chinos a similar treatment. Currently on sale now the Jaggy Five Pocket Summer Chino is a European influenced summer weight chino, designed in Italy and offered in a variety of S/S friendly colors. This is a big move by Brooks Brothers who continue to prove they can function at a high level in between what is not only classic, but forward thinking (at least in terms of fit). It appears as if these aren't solely an online exclusive so make sure you call your local BB to check if they have any in stock so you can try on a pair yourself. If these are even half as good as their extra slim fit shirts I'll more than likely be adding a pair or two myself. I would have never pegged anything from Brooks as "Neapolitan", but I guess there's a first time for everything.
