The cut of the BC-03 STRAIGHT CHINO is inspired by a classic 1940s straight silhouette. We’ve modernised the fit with a shaped top block. This brings the chino closer to a contemporary cut, still paying homage to its roots. Although the cut has a high rise, the BC-03 grants plenty of room throughout and allows for additional movement in the top block. It features the same details as our tapered counterpart, the BC-01.
This fabric is part of our limited edition selvedge program. We’ve partnered up with Candiani Denim to create a series of exclusive pieces. The collection blends selvedge denim heritage and upcycling sustainability. We’ve used a selection of Candiani deadstock and surplus fabrics, to make six garments: a chino, two overshirts, a brand-new type II jacket in two fabrics, and a new iteration of our recent collab with Bonne Suits.
The 12 oz. midnight blue selvedge is a super dark indigo x black denim fabric. Because of its dark appearance (it has an indigo dyed warp and a black weft) the fabric is quite clean and formal looking. However, it has an amazing fading potential because eventually the white core of the indigo dyed yarns will get exposed with wear and wash, creating a super high contrast fading pattern. It might take a bit longer than average, but the end results of these type of fabrics are always stunning.
