Selvedge chinos remain one of our most requested products and one of the hardest fabrics to find. We've been checking with the mill in Japan almost daily for this style and finally hit a tiny quantity of this sweet fabric with an extra colorful selvedge ID.
Gustin Chinos made from selvedge cotton twill woven at one of the finest mills in Japan. Given that this is only the third selvedge chino we've offered, you can see how difficult this type of fabric is to find, but we've been on the hunt. The value we're able to offer on this product compared to other you might fight is really what keeps us motivated. This is one sweet chino fabric. This style has a golden wheat hue -- a timeless color that never goes out of style. Compared to our first selvedge chino fabric, this one has a tighter weave, a smoother texture and a softer hand. At 8.9 ounces it's still substantial, but is probably the ideal year-round weight. To cap it off it's finished with a vibrant two tone selvedge ID of purple and green.
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.
Choose either our Straight fit or Slim fit. More details available on our fit guide.
