Some fabrics are love at first touch. That's precisely how we felt when we found this rare twill from Japan. These are our first wool blend chinos and they're destined to become your new favorites.
The moment you see and touch these chinos you know you've found something special. First is the overall look. We wanted to find a wool blend that remained casual in style. This twill incorporates wool beautifully to enhance feel and comfort while remaining classic and rugged. Next comes the feel. There is a hairiness to surface that you don't usually see with twills. It's velvety soft without a touch of scratchiness to be found. At 10 ounces these are solid chinos, but the intense softness of the fabric makes them a pure joy to wear. They drape well and you can move in them with ease. The color is classic but has a softness to it that gives these chinos a slightly aged look. This is the type of fabric that entirely changes the way we think about chinos.
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.
