If you wear them right, they won't be chavvy, but they were not really something young people wore until recently.
Well I used to wear them until I was about fourteen when I started wearing jeans or combats. That would have been twenty years ago now though, no idea if it was fashionable at the time though, I just used to like wearing them with Hawaiian shirts...
Chino's didn't used to be chavvy - they were usually worn by preppy/upper class people, and even the elderly occasionally. However nowadays they have become synonymous with the "urban" crew. You can still buy Chinos and not look like a chav, just avoid the horrendous pairs with elasticated ankles.
Everything becomes chavvy once they're wholesale adopted by chavs. Its just something you have to accept and adapt to. Burberry didn't use to be chavvy, now its the first port of call for any chav fancy dress outfit.
Only the tapered, cuffed or dropcrotch chinos are really affected. Other chavvy items include plunge neck t-shirts, skinny cardigans and anything from superdry.
Depends. I hate it when people label something when everyone wears them different ways.
I think they look nice on guys as long as the crotch isn't hanging down to the knees, or the ones with the elastic at the bottom *shudders*.
