    washed chinos

    Hi,

    PAUL BIRARDI, AN OWNER OF ODIN NEW YORK

    Generally, I don’t stockpile clothing other than multiple footwear pieces by Common Projects. But recently I purchased washed chinos in different colors from J. Crew, mostly because whenever I find something that fits me properly, sure enough a designer will do away with that style the following season.

    (For Guys, a Great Find Is Often Multiplied; The NY Times)

    Does "washed chinos" mean "the chinos that are able to be washed without being damaged or losing their color"?

    Re: washed chinos

    No; it means the chinos were pre-washed by the manufacturer.

    This fades them slightly, makes them feel more comfortable and they no longer look brand new.

    To say this they would have used something like "I purchased washable, color-safe chinos".
