Our first ever jean using a classic chino selvedge. They are very smart looking. They are lightweight. Super comfortable. But unlike most chino fabrics, they are designed to get better with age. Just like a good old jean.
A slimmer fitting five pocket chino jean made from a beautiful 9.2oz blue chino, with white selvedge edge by Kuroki.
The Slim® cut has become a big hit. We took the Slim cut and shaved 2cm off the leg. The leg opening is 16.5cm. And they look great. Apart from the fit, pretty much everything else is the same.
What we love about jeans is they get better with age. And what we love about this chino fabric is that it is woven and dyed in such a way to do just that.
So the construction is a traditional 3x1, with high density weaving like the chino’s they used to make back in the 1950’s. But, and this is the clever bit, they have dyed them so there is a 30% difference in the tone of the warp and the weft. The reason for that is twofold: Firstly, it stops them looking just one dimensional, which a lot of chino’s can do. And, it allows them to get better with age. So they have the smartness of a chino but with the character of a jean. And a selvedge edge to boot.
