Extra heavy twill, straight from Japan in rare selvedge form.
Gustin Chinos made from selvedge cotton twill woven at one of the finest mills in Japan. When we come across products that few other brands offer and that carry really high price-points, we get interested. First, we love hunting for fabric, it's what we do. Second, because of how efficient our model is, we know we can offer a much better value than the $230+ price-points we see out there for selvedge chinos. This style has a muted, olive green shade -- a timeless color that never goes out of style. We've take our time to find a selvedge twill that stands out and this fabric is simply a winner. We've had a few pairs around the office for a while now and the feel is superb. It feels heavier than 9.6 ounces, giving it a really solid feel when on. It gets better with each wash, taking on a slightly peached feel. A crisp white selvedge ID finishes the fabric off and gets incorporated into the out-seam of each pant. These are chinos to own and wear for years to come.
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.
