We launched our entire chino line with this fabric and we're very pleased to see this American made twill return.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton twill woven right in the USA (North Carolina). This style uses a rich graphite shade. It's dark and has just a touch of blue in it making a bit more interesting than a standard pure grey. It shares the same 3x1 twill construction as the Light Khaki fabric. That means it has great texture from a well defined wale. You really feel the twill line when you touch it, which gives it a slightly tougher character. We pre-wash the fabric to soften it up and to reduce shrink. If you're looking for a Chino but aren't into a khaki shade, this is the perfect option.
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+.
