Term Definition
Chinos
Chinos - In 1848, Sir Harry Lumsden, commanding officer of a British regiment in India had an idea to die his men's white uniform with a mixture of coffee, curry powder and mulberry juice to disguise the inevitable dirt. The indians called this new colour 'Khaki'. The name chino comes from the fact these trousers were originally made in China. 'Chino' is the Spanish term for Chinese.
