Chin up

On point with a P as in Portugal. Where they’re made.

What annoys you about the chinos on the market?


They stretch and lose their shape


The colours fade way too soon


Buttons and seams fall apart


The fit is not right

Tough nut and then some

Fabric with character

97% organic cotton, 3% recycled elastane, that's the stuff these Heavy Chinos are made off. Its double-twisted yarn guarantees a high level of durability. Tough as nuts but soft at heart.

What a cut

Unsurprisingly, we stayed true to your favoured tailored fit. But, just like you asked for in our questionnaire, we’ve added a touch more ease around the thighs and waist before tapering from the knee down. Still tailored, just more comfortable.

It doesn’t get more comfy that this

Making solid trousers isn't rocket science. But creating a pair of chinos that are seriously comfortable can get a bit technical. For example, we've injected 3% elastane to get just the right level of softness and flexibility. We opted for a fully decomposable Roica yarn, a technology developed in Japanese by Asahi Kasei for elite technical clothing.

Elastane? But why?

As well as providing comfort, the addition of elastane makes the fabric more resilient under stress and last longer. Basically, your Heavy Chinos will return to their original shape whatever you put them through, within reason.

Maximum versatility

Robust, check. Durable, check. Comfortable, check. And the design? We've spoiled you here too. These chinos are the ultimate alternative to jeans, so we've designed ours accordingly. Tailored cut, waistband button fastening, two welted back pockets: we've pulled out all the stops so they can fit straight into your most casual or dressy outfits.

Faithful colours

Rest assured, your Heavy Chinos won't be losing their intense hues any time soon. We know that fading colours is a pet peeve of yours, so we've dyed our fabrics directly on the roll. Not only does this produce a more even finish, but it also allows the pigments to penetrate deeper into the fibres so that the colours keep looking good for longer. The hardest part will be choosing between the 6 colours on offer.

Of rust and water

There’s a high chance that this is the kind of item you're going to want to mix and match because they’re so comfortable and hard-wearing. So we've added two new, never-before-seen colours: Rust and Light Sea Green. We hope you like them.


260 gr/m2 is the density of the cotton/elastane fabric we chose for the Heavy Chinos. For us, it's the best compromise between robustness and versatility. Heavier would have ruled them out for milder days, and lighter would have impacted their robustness and lost the nice drape. 260 gr/m2 is bang on the nose.

Serious assembly

As you know, we always try to make everything that goes into our clothes in Europe. This time we’ve partnered with Expotime in Bulgarian. They’re a manufacturer famed for their skill and diligence in making trousers and we’re really happy to finally be working with them.
