We’re back with another sample preview. For the past few months, we’ve been working on the perfect chino. We needed a razor sharp fit, some interesting details, and unbelivable fabric. After a lot of late nights, strong-ass coffee, and karaoke-fueled trips to LA, the dream is almost reality.
May I introduce you to the final approval sample of our upcoming EP’s Rivet Chino. The fit is slim-leg, and medium-low rise. Pretty close to our EP’s Smith Jean and our Epaulet Walt trouser (but with a lower rise). It shares the same gunmetal button fly and hickory striped pockets as our selvedge denim. The interior seams are fully taped, and herringbone natural canvas taping runs down each leg. The body has traditional slash pockets, rear besom pockets, and the signature “wallet” EP’s coin pocket - which will totally swallow a few credit cards and cash.
And the fabric. Oh my god! It’s a sueded British twill with an unbelievable hand. I’ll wager to say that these will be among the best-feeling chinos that you’ve ever put on. ETA is about 4-5 weeks, and they’ll come in both Navy and British Khaki (a bit darker than the usual khaki shade). The price should be around our Selvedge Denim price ($145), but possibly a bit less. We’re working on a special edition for late May too. We’ll surely holler at you once they arrive!
