We introduced this special fabric in our Harrington Jacket and knew immediately that we had to use it again. It's one of the most unusually beautiful twills we've found in a long time. In chino form it's absolutely sweet.
This special fabric from Japan has it all. Unlike a traditional twill with a very solid color surface, this version has much more complexity. A solid base color is contrasted with a tonal complement a few shades lighter or darker. What's even cooler is how a that lighter thread gets a bit of the dark twisted into it creating a unique corkscrew effect. Sewn up in our classic chino style, the pants take on an almost wool-trouser formality. Wearability is also a dream. This fabric is intensely soft but still solid at 8 ounces. It is hands-down one of the most comfortable chinos we've made and a true joy to wear all day. Finally, this version uses a bright olive base with a dark complimenting color for an vintage military look.
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+.
