The Full Story+

The District Chino trousers are lightweight and comfortable with smart styling that are ready to take you from long summer days exploring to dining whilst watching the beautiful sunset. The trousers have a tailored fit with two rear buttoned pockets, two hand pockets and one zipped security pocket to keep all your essentials safe.

These Chino's are made using 100% Polyester, the construction of the fabric has been designed to create a two-way stretch referred to as a mechanical stretch, meaning the composition has no Elastane. Instead, the give of the fabric comes purely from the construction of the material.

The trousers include a discreet, elasticated waist detail for added comfort whilst the fabric is naturally wicking to keep you cool on hot days. These will quickly become your favourite pair to take with you everywhere this summer. The District Chinos will look great with our range of Jackets and Ts, for a smart yet comfortable and stylish look.

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

1 Secure Pocket

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

Very comfortable fit and good quality material with slight stretch. They will be a useful smart/casual travel trouser.

My Number 1 District Chinos


A couple of years ago I felt as if I had no acceptable summer trousers but now I have all three colours in the District range. They are perfect for a UK summer and did well on a trip to (much warmer!) Switzerland last week. I look forward to strutting them soon in Kyoto. They wear well without creases and they wash well. They should be good when I combine rambling and tea shop mooching in a couple of weeks time.

Great warm weather smart pants


Currently in 30°C Cyprus , the hotel requires long trousers in the restaurants during the evening. District Chinos are perfect. Smart, lightweight, comfortable and the creases drop out over night.

Excellent fit, modern looking stylish trousers. I got the blue version and I’m going to order the same in the other two colours as well.

Men's District Chinos


Bought these to supplement my Grand Tour Chinos [GTC], if they are as good I will be happy. So far I am very happy with them. The only minor issue I have is that on the GTC's the secure pocket zip is hidden behind a flap, but this is not the case with these which makes it obvious, and possibly less secure?

Excellent ‘smart casual’ for travelling


They get crumpled up and stuffed in a duffel bag but, after a quick shake, are ready to wear in a reasonably posh restaurant. Wore them on a mini-break in darkest Wales and, as well as fore-mentioned restaurant, they did service with a bit of bird-watching. So they are versatile. Good range of pockets, including a zipped safety pocket. Wash and dry very easily. Material is different from their walking trousers - more ‘mainstream’, and the discreet elastic bits in the waistband were useful. Thoroughly recommended. I’m going to order a pair of blue ones as well.

I teamed them with Rohan shirts and it meant my luggage was tiny. “Who would travel happily must travel lightly” - which is one of the main reasons I’ve been a Rohan customer for so long,

District Chinos


Bought a pair (36L) on 16 March and went straight on a cottage holiday in Northumberland - driving, bit of walking, tourist stuff, ate out in pubs and a couple of good restaurants - I wore the district chinos for everything we did all week. Absolutely excellent - comfortable, stayed smart and crease free. When we got home after 8 days I thought I’d better wash them although they didn’t look like they needed it. They’ve washed well - dried overnight, no ironing needed - look good as new. Highly recommended. Sizing was spot on.
