Next, we must choose the appropriate type of pants to match with the mandarin collar shirt. Normally, we will suggest the chino pants, as it can double up as casual as well as slightly smarter pants for any occasion. However, if you feel that the chinos are just too plain or boring, you can always opt for a jogger-chinos. Jogger chino is a very good balance between smart-formal and casual.
