Cone Mills canvas is rare, a black on white version even more so and this one is going to sew into your coolest chinos yet.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton canvas woven by Cone Mills. Typically, the canvas we use in our chinos is a solid color. Blue, brown, olive. When we found this style we knew we had to try it. It's a rare find on many levels. First, Cone Mills rarely produces canvas, so this is a pair of chinos very few people will ever own. Second, the composition is unlike any other canvas we've used. Instead of the same color warp and weft, this style has a white warp and black weft. The result is almost oxford like in the way the colors play together. The surface is bright, but the black weft serves as a subtle shadow to tone the fabric down. It's solid at 12 ounces. This is going to be your most unique chino yet.
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+.
Choose either our Straight fit or Slim fit. More details available on our fit guide.
