Chinos - my wotsit!

Life is not going my way.  For years I have worn Chino trousers which were designed as a cotton fabric loose fitting trouser with a darted waist.
Having searched the shops for a pair of these trousers, I now find that the usual made in China or made in India stock (throughout the stores) are now flat fronted tight trousers in regular or short leg sizes.  They are all called Chino's, but they are a mile away from the comfortable design that was a Chino.
There are still a few companies that manufacture within Europe, who produce the classic Chino trousers, but they cannot compete with the cheap imports from outside of the European Zone.  It looks like local manufacturing is now well and truly dead.
