True experimentation from Japan creates a twill like no other we've seen. It'll be your most unique pair of chinos hands-down.
Gustin Chinos made from cotton twill woven at one of the finest mills in Japan. It's always fun for us to find mills that experiment. Usually it's with shirting of denim, so when we find something totally new in a bottom weight twill we get excited. This version plays with color like we've never seen before. The base fabric is an open, flowing twill. It's 8 ounce weight is solid, while the overall feel remains extremely soft. Color is where this fabric is a true standout. A unique printing process is used to impart a vibrant sky blue base to the fabric surface. What's even cooler is this process creates wonderful highs-and-lows of color that you almost never find in a twill. It's almost a blue heather and is undoubtedly sweet. If you're looking for a truly rare chino, this is it.
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.
