Khaki v. Chino

Many of you, like me, I'm sure have had the argument of khaki versus chino. What do these words really mean?

Fact of the Day: Khaki and Chino
Khaki (from Hindi 'dust-colored') is light brown fabric used primarily for military uniforms. Khaki uniforms were introduced in 1848 for British colonial troops in India. Chino (from American Spanish 'toasted') is a cotton twill fabric, usually khaki in color.
