A first for us, this deeply saturated indigo dyed selvedge canvas from Japan will be your new favorite chino.
Gustin chinos made from selvedge canvas from one of the finest mills in Japan. Our eyes always light up when we find a new fabric that would be stellar in chino form. This canvas from Japan is our latest find. Dye, weight, feel, it's all there. The base is a tightly woven canvas. It's dense and at 9 ounces it strikes a nice balance between heft and wearability. Indigo dye, rarely used for canvas, colors this fabric to a deeply saturated, lusciously, inky blue. Even better, the color will age softly over time as you wear these pants in. A nice white selvedge ID finishes the fabric. This fabric was born to be sewn up denim style.
By now, you know we’re obsessed with construction and our Chino is no exception. We approach this garment considering it to be a tailored pant. The waist band is fully curtained using a beautiful, slubby, indigo chambray fabric and a red center stitch. This produces a totally clean finished upper. We also clean finish the fly and seat seams with indigo chambray binding. The fly is secured with custom shaped and engraved Corozo buttons. Belt loops are hand folded, tucked on the bottom and top waistband for added strength. They are also made in a slightly narrower width as compared to our denim to give the pant a more refined look. Traditional slash pockets are on the front, bar tacked on top and bottom. The back pockets are intricately constructed welt pockets also secured with our custom Corozo buttons. Both inseam and outseam use a busted seam for less bulk. This is construction done the right way throughout.
We started from the ground up on fit to create both our slim and straight styles. As with our denim, we like a classic look but with an updated fit. Our slim sits lower on the waist and is well tailored through the thigh down to the cuff. It’s not extreme, but definitely a modern, tailored fit. Our straight is designed to sit a bit higher on the waist and is more relaxed in the thigh to the cuff. If you like our slim denim, go with the slim khaki. If you like our straight denim, go with our straight khaki.
Choose either our Straight fit or Slim fit. More details available on our fit guide.
