We ran this rare all-American selvedge twill in our denim cut last week and it's just too good to pass up as a chino. This is a tremendous pair of selvedge chinos at the best value we've ever offered.
Gustin Chinos made from selvedge cotton twill woven at one of the finest mills in the USA. If you've been waiting to jump on the selvedge chino train, this is your chance. The fabric is sweet and the value even sweeter. The color is just spot on: a golden khaki, rich and traditional. At 9 ounces this fabric is solid and a tight weave gives it dense feel and a nicely defined twill line. This chino feel sturdy and durable. It looks great paired with a crisp blue oxford or a heather grey t-shirt. A bright red selvedge ID completes this twill. Rare fabrics aren't just for the denim world, chinos deserve some special treatment too.
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.
