We were sold on this all-American style the second we touched it. It has a texture and complexity of shade that really sets it apart.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton twill woven right in the USA (North Carolina). We come across a lot of fabric at Gustin. It's what we do. Some of the twills we see for chinos just have no life, but when we came across this style, we knew we would be using it. It starts with the feel. It has tremendous texture and body. A 3x1 construction gives it a more pronounced twill line and a slightly tougher feel. At 12 ounces, it's one of the heaviest twill we've used in our chinos. Heavy doesn't always make for a great pant but when you combine it with an unusually soft feel, the result is perfect. These chinos feel very substantial but also very supple. They drape well and just feel amazing on. Next comes the shade. Technically, this is a colored denim as it uses a deep slate grey warp on a white weft. The result is that it has real highs and lows of color that brings it to life and will help it wear in beautifully. This is our new number one chino at the office hands down.
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+.
