How do you make a great garment even better? Make it more comfortable by adding just a touch of stretch.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton blend twill woven right in the USA (North Carolina). This is the kind of fabric that sneaks up on you. That's exactly why we love it so much. On the surface, it's unassuming, but when you put it on, you just can't help but love it. At first glance, you might think this is the twill we launched our entire chino line with 3 years ago. In some ways you would be correct. It shares the same 3x1 construction, giving it a nicely defined twill line and a touch of ruggedness. It's a bit heavier at 8.5 ounces and it feels sturdy despite a very soft, natural feel. Yarn is where things become new. Just a small amount of lycra is woven in, but the change in feel is big. When you move in all cotton pants, you reach point where you feel resistance. In these, you get just a bit of easing. It's quite nice and refreshingly comfortable. Whether you're sitting in the office, driving around or hiking, you will love the movement in these chinos. This style uses a deep red color. It's dark enough to be a little more subdued than some other red options we've seen. These are simply must have 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+.
