Our all-American military twill has become one of our favorite chino materials. Now it's time to liven things up a bit.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton twill woven at one of the finest mills in USA. The best fabrics are those that combine texture, weight and shade to create a balanced garment. Military twills are outstanding at striking this balance and this style shows us why. It starts with a beefy 10 ounce weight. This chino feels substantial on, while the softness of the fabric lets it hang very well. Military twills tend to have a very defined and prominent twill line and this fabric is no exception. The heavy wale gives this fabric great texture that you sometimes miss in more standard twills. The look is just a touch more rugged. Finally, we're trying some brighter shades. This bright, deep red color is a great alternative when you get tired of the khakis, blues and greys we all have filling our closet.
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+.
