The ultimate summer chino, this fine linen-cotton blend twill from Japan is the perfect answer to summer.
These chinos are made from linen-cotton blend twill woven at one of the finest mills in Japan. This is a first for us and we're glad it has finally arrived. When you wear a summer pant you want comfort and breathability. To us, the combination of linen and cotton is ideal. Linen is prized for is strength and moisture wicking ability. It also has a slightly crispy feel that softens with wear and handling. You feel that come through in these chinos. They have that tell-tale linen feel, while the cotton adds body and suppleness. A breezy 6.4 ounce weight gives them even better summer credentials. The wale on these is thick and the weave slightly more open, giving them nice texture. A deep blue base gives this one a nice crisp formality.
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+.
Choose either our Straight fit or Slim fit. More details available on our fit guide.
