Chinos should only be made in bootcut style. Once you find a pair that fits, buy all of the colorways, trust.
Along with a cashmere long sleeve style sweater, this exact pair of Old Navy chinos in the five colors – black, navy, slate, khaki, stone – constituted my work wardrobe from 2017 to 2019. I was working in an office full of men and my style choices were the least of anyone’s critiques. By Friday night after dinner was finished, I washed them all in preparation for the next week.
These days, the Old Navy chinos go in and out of stock. However, I found a very similar pair from American Eagle that are available with a 36 inch inseam.
