The linen chino, ideal summer wear
Our chinos are crafted from a blend of linen and cotton woven at one of the finest mills in Mauritius. When you wear summer pants you want comfort and breathability. To us, the combination of linen and cotton is ideal. Linen is prized for its strength and moisture-wicking ability. It also has a slightly crispy feel that softens with wear and handling. You feel that come through in these chinos.
Chino fabric is a sturdy, twill weave fabric. It is generally made from cotton or cotton blends and dyed khaki or tan colours. Chino fabric can be recognised by the subtle sheen it has. It is very hard-wearing and was traditionally used for military uniforms or work wear. It is now more commonly used for casual civilian clothing and sportswear and can be dyed a multitude of colour to serve this purpose. The term ‘Chinos’ can also be used to describe a pair of trousers made from Chino fabric; which have become increasingly popular in casual fashion recently.
