The Military Pants Care Guide

May 23, 2023

Okay, so these Military Pants probably aren’t going to be getting the run-around real-life enlisted fatigues do, but that’s no reason not to look after them, is it?


These are made from a super-sturdy 300g/m2 organic cotton satin. Trousers don’t get much more hardy than this, but that doesn’t stop them getting dirty.

So, when it’s time to wash your trousers, pop them inside out and put them in the wash, with similar colours, on a standard programme at 30°C. As far as the spin cycle goes, we’d recommend anything from 600 to 800 rpm. A lo-fi care guide so far, right?


Stop! Don’t even think about going near that tumble dryer.

Quite aside from being expensive, machine drying can ruin your clothes, even these rough and ready slacks.

Just let your trousers chill for a bit, they earned it. Dry them on a rack, hanging by the legs. If you do this in a well-ventilated spot, they’ll be dry in a few hours, and almost crease-free.

Avoid drying them in direct sunlight to save them from long-term colour fading. We dyed these properly, but you can never be too careful.


You don’t need to nail that razor-sharp crease the army expects from their trousers, but every now and then you may want these looking extra tidy.

Just fill your iron with demineralised water, choose the "cotton" mode (110°C max) and whack on the radio. Get a little you time in.

If you’re the cautious sort you can place a layer of fabric between the iron and your trousers, that’s your call.

That’s the lot!

There you have it. You now know everything there is to know about looking after your Military Pants.
