One of our favorite mills in Japan that focuses on reproduction styles was inspired by iconic hard wearing baggy chinos favored by skaters. We take this fabric and treat it to our intricately constructed chino style to create an ideal blend of rugged and refined. The Skater Twill Chinos.
Twills often focus on comfort and color, but are not rooted in a specific origin story. Not in this case. Japan used the iconic baggy skater chino and recreated the retro twills used in that style. Classic, but rugged, this version starts with a hefty 10 ounce base weight. A 3x1 construction yields a very well defined twill line and slightly more rugged look. A blend of hard wearing, durable tencel and cotton is used. The overall feel is sturdy and just a touch crisp - a nod to the throwback inspiration and its ability to take on a few spills (ones most of us won't endure in these chinos). Our chino style adds in a more refined fit and all the intricate details we love from a fully curtained waistband and hand folded belt loops. Rugged and refined, made in the USA.
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.
