Top man chinos yes, old man chinos no. I wear old man chinos to clinical placements and I would be very suprised if anybody said I looked like a chav in them.
Really? Chinos with elasticated bottoms/long crotch/super tight ones (read ill-fitting), boat shoes with no socks and a denin shirt tucked in/tucked out. Complete with ill-shaved stubble and gelled up hair, add in a fake tan as well if the image isn't good enough for you.

If you can look chavvy wearing a shirt, chinos and boat shoes I will applaud you.
It's quite easy to look like a chav in a shirt, chinos and boat shoes. It just depends on how you wear them. Granted, if you wear proper fitting pleated chinos, a tidy dress shirt and any decent shoes (boat shoes included) then you won't look like a chav but it's certainly not impossible.

They used to be Indie, now they're more mainstream, wouldn't say chavvy though. Just everyone wears them with a printed T-shirt from Topshop sporting a tattoo on the arm, with a hat, and usually likes Drake/other rap artists which are becoming mainstream.
I do remember chinos being worn by middle/upper class people though usually with a nice jumper

I wouldn't classify them as chavvy just yet. Chavs only began wearing jeans a couple of years ago I noticed. Before that it was trackies and Burberry caps. I miss the old-style chavs.
*****EDIT: IMPORTANT - DO CHAVS ACTUALLY EXIST ANYMORE? HAVE THEY SPLIT OFF INTO SEVERAL DIFFERENT AND HARD TO IDENTIFY SUBGROUPS?*****

Well, I actually haven't seen so many chavs wear chino's. Well, if they are- then, to be honest- so what? If I still like chinos, I'll wear chinos. Oh, there could be a possibility that satchel bags also become chavy as well
