In 1846, British army officer Sir Harry Lumsden decided to dye the white military uniforms khaki, a colour made official in 1884. Though originally a military garment used during colonial times, the term “chino” dates back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Then made in Manchester, England, the trousers were sold by Chinese merchants to American servicemen in the Philippines. The term “chino” stems from the Spanish words for “Chinese trousers”, or “pantalones chinos”. After the war, the trousers were made popular in the United States thanks to the servicemen returning home wearing their chino trousers.
