Steeped in a rich workwear history, our new discovery of this beautiful Japanese moleskin showcases everything that makes this rare fabric sew into one of the best pair of chinos you'll own. These are the Gustin Moleskin Chinos.
Moleskin has a deep history and its story is one of function and authenticity. This was a fabric designed for comfort and durability from day one. It was originally sewn into everything from work pants to military uniforms, where true utility was a must. We think this version from Japan honors this history and adds absolute quality and beauty. 
The base is a densely woven twill that's a substantial 11 ounces. You feel both of these qualities when you put these chinos on. They feel tough and durable. This is where the inherent suppleness of the moleskin perfectly balances that heft out. These pants remain comfortable and breathable all day long. The softness helps them drape as well as a lighter weight fabric. The almost velvety nap on the top surface is a signature of moleskin and makes these chinos feel even more special. This royal is much brighter than your typical navy chino, perfect for any blue lover who wants something with a bit more life.
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.
This is the same style and quality that was sold in boutiques all over the country for $205+.
