  • Inspired by the common Chino pants of the early 20th century, and redesigned.

    In the middle of the 19th century, the British army was sent to the Punjab area in western India. At that time, the traditional British military uniform was red in top and white in the bottom. Mr. Harry Lumsden, an officer, found that this kind of white trousers was very easy to produce dirt when marching and fighting, and it was easy to make the British soldiers become the striking targets of the enemy. So Mr. Harry Lumsden decided to change the general's uniform to a light, thin, and durable twill cotton (that is Chino). And use coffee, mulberry, etc. to dye it like a tan (we now call it khaki) to facilitate camouflage on the battlefield, this kind of chintz gradually became the summer military uniform material for British and Indian troops and at the end of the 19th century, it officially became the official uniform material of the British army.

    Because of its simplicity and durability, the twill fabric was widely used for civil use in the early 20th century, and khaki was also more and more popular. With the development of fashion, up to now, this Chino cloth also has more colors.

    This time, we will improve and make this classic trouser. Wide-leg loose-fitting style, sewed with the common process of old-fashioned trousers. The front pocket is a classic 19th-century button design with an enlarged opening for easier access to items in everyday life or on the road. The back waist is equipped with a Paris buckle to adjust the extra space in the waist.

    In order to restore the sense of simplicity in the old era, a special water washing process is carried out as a whole. There will be wrinkles at the route to make the old effect, and there will be a sense of age without any sense of disobedience.

    For those of you who don't like wearing shorts, this pair of light pants with some looseness may be the most suitable piece for you in summer.
