Wikipedia: Cappuccino
A cappuccino (/ˌkæpʊˈtʃiːnoʊ/; Italian pronunciation: [kapputˈtʃiːno]; Italian plural: cappuccini) is an espresso-based coffee drink that originated in Austria with later development taking place in Italy, and is prepared with steamed milk foam (microfoam).
 
Wikipedia: Chino cloth
Chino cloth (/ˈtʃiːnoʊ/ CHEE-noh) is a twill fabric, originally made of 100% cotton. The most common items made from it, trousers, are widely called chinos. Today it is also found in cotton-synthetic blends.
