Year-round, but especially during the warmer months, chinos are the best and most versatile men’s pants you’ll ever wear. They have the ease and casual essence of jeans but transition perfectly to a more dressy occasion with a button-down shirt and loafers.

Most men love wearing chinos in the summertime because they’re super lightweight, stretchy and come in tons of colors and fits. I’ve found the best men’s chinos in the No. 1 best-selling Bonobos Stretch Washed Chino 2.0, but other options (including more of my favorites from Bonobos) are currently on sale for as low as $15!

Brands like 14th & Union, Banana Republic, J.Crew, L.L.Bean and stores like Nordstrom and Amazon have some of the best men’s chino deals you’ll find anywhere.

To make shopping a lot easier, we’ve rounded up the seven best deals across retailers and brands below. Keep in mind that sizes are running out fast, so shop now while they’re available.

I’ve raved about the Bonobos Stretch Washed Chino 2.0 before, but when you find pants this good, it’s hard to stay quiet about it. These are, hands down, the best chinos I’ve ever worn.
