Cotton trousers, like khakis/chinos or these corduroys, generally aren’t good for dressy, formal occasions because they don’t drape well and wrinkle easily.  But they’re perfect for casual Fridays when a little rumple is OK.

    Chinos are usually several degrees more casual than khakis. For example, compare what Brooks Brothers sells as Chinos vs. khakis. A pair of Brooks Chinos would probably not work with the jacket.
