This snap of James Dean strolling New York City in a pair of khaki chinos comes from a 1993 Gap campaign unearthed by How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The series of photos features some of the greatest men’s style icons—from Ali to Dalí—going about their daily lives, wearing the simple summer pant. It’s a nice reminder of how style is timeless.

You’ll want to brush up on your summer pant game by harnessing your chino.
