Description

Originally issued to American soldiers during WWII, the first military chinos were celebrated for their comfort, versatility, and impressive ruggedness. They proved so popular, in fact, that soldiers held onto their well-worn pairs even after discharge, and as more and more civilians took notice, the style became a fixture of garages and workshops as well as college campuses and city streets all across the country. Featuring 100% Responsible materials and an updated silhouette, The Foundation Pant is both a reinvention of our earlier chinos and an elevated reimagining of the all-purpose originals, built to help you start your day on solid ground.

Material

The Foundation Pant project started when we discovered some deadstock military chino material and decided to reverse engineer it with 100% organic cotton. We chose a balanced weight (8.5-oz.) that feels great all year round, and opted for a tight weave using mercerized yarns, giving The Foundation Pant a smooth hand feel and improved durability. Because it’s been garment dyed and washed, it has the character of a well-loved vintage piece, and it’ll continue to pick up a ton of nuance with wear. Cool herringbone accents at the waistband and the pockets serve as a nod to the style’s military origins.

Fit For ServiceAfter WWII (and later, Vietnam and Korea), returning American soldiers held on to their standard-issue military chinos—they were seen as the quintessential utility pant, perfect for an afternoon in the garage or the workshop. We're reviving that reputation with The Foundation Pant, our updated take on an indisputable classic.Learn More

This garment is made with 100% Organic Cotton

Who doesn’t love cotton? It’s soft, versatile, and low-maintenance. Unfortunately, the conventionally grown stuff is absurdly wasteful and often relies on harmful chemicals. That’s why this product is built with 100% organic cotton—all of the benefits, none of the BS.
