J. Crew Scout Chino + more reviews

Visiting family in Toronto and decided to pay a trip to J. Crew at Yorkdale.

I usually make a shopping plan before I head into the store as I know I always get overwhelmed when I get there. Want to shop for pants this time so browse online beforehand.

Have been shopping for a pair of colored denim for a while. Want a pair of mint/light blue color. Have tried on a few but no luck so far as they are either low-rise or very skinny.

When I saw the scout chino online, I thought that may work.

And when I got to the store, saw the gondola top which I love when I first saw it online and had to try it on.



The material is very soft. I thought it is all silk but it has a certain texture to it so makes it more substantial. I would say a bit velvety on the touch. Very nice and I love it.


Next grabbed the scout chino in mint. From the website, the color does not show up very well. It is a very light mint color, which is what I like.



I grabbed a size 4 and a 6 to try on. The first picture was a size 4 and it fits ok on the waist. I tried on the size 6 next and it fits better and I like the length better. The material is not as thick as the toothpick jeans which I like it better.



I wasn't looking for a pair of bright fuscia pants but I wanted to try it on and totally amazed of how well it fits. No wonder it is so many others rave about this. Only this color is on sale. My sales associate told me that they just put these on sale 5 mins earlier. They were on sale for $82.




Obsessed with polka dot and how could I resist this polka dot capri pants? But I'm not sure besides a white or black top, I can't wear much else with this bold pattern. So, will pass on this one....... for now.

I ended up getting everything but the polka dot pants. I wasn't going to get the scout chino but they fit so comfortably and after trying on numerous mint colored jeans/pants, I don't want to let this pair go. Knowing my luck, J. Crew will have a 30% off sale this weekend online. But I will be in town for a few more days so if that happens, will bring that back and repurchased online.

    1. yes, when the sale is on at J. Crew, smaller sizes go fast. I can only go to the store whenever I'm visiting Toronto so I mostly buy online and the best time to catch all the sizes is first thing in the morning.

    1. I love the top too. Think I can dress up or down with it. Can't wait to wear it. I wish I live closer to a J Crew store but then my bank account won't like it too much. Just too many cute things there.

  13. You will probably get lots of wear out of the scout chinos & they will be worth the price you paid. I love the dahlia color on you and the gondola top looks great. Good review! I can see a number of colors you can wear w/the polka dot pants. Any bright, pretty top that looks good w/your coloring. The bright dahlia could work. Cerise, mint, red, grey...

    1. yes, I have been wearing my scout chinos for the past few days and loving them. So comfy and the color is gorgeous, very different from my boring usual black, greys and browns. Just wish J. Crew will have a promo code with regular items soon so I can grab the polka dot pants too.

      thanks for dropping by my blog and visiting. Very sweet of you!

  15. Very nice outfits, loving the chino pants, my girlfriend also have a few of them and she really like wearing such kind of pants as she feels very comfortable in them.

  16. This might be an odd request but is it possible for you to feature chinos for men and what to wear with chinos? Like the appropriate shoes, jackets and color of shirts that will match well with chinos?
