You asked for it and now you get it! Our Cone Selvedge Canvas in the chino cut. As usual, the efficiency our model lets us offer a much better value than the $230+ price-points we see out there for selvedge chinos.
Gustin Chinos made from selvedge cotton canvas from Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC. Selvedge chinos are in a category by themselves. It's an extremely rare product. We started out with heavy selvedge twills from Japan for a rugged but traditional look. The best way to follow that is with a heavy duty canvas. This style is a very solid 10.75 ounces giving it a very substantial and rugged feel when on. Next comes the dye - you know our favorite - indigo, and this style has it. It's an incredibly inky deep blue and will age beautifully over time. Finally, a selvedge composition puts the style over the top. The ID on this style is beefy. White dominates, but you see indigo, as well as a thin red ticker on the inside. This is an all-American collector chino if we've ever seen one.
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.
