Since the release of the American Chino, a collaboration with Imogene + Willie, we have been getting a lot of questions about how a chino is made. Here is a recap from our blog in 2018, a quick breakdown of our original chino.


Deceptively basic, each chino goes through 48+ operations before it hits the stores.

26 Pattern Pieces
2 Yards of Fabric
2 Buttons / 2 Hook & Eye Trims
48 Operations / 7 Machines
10 People Assembling
7,000 approx. Stitches

Assembling each chino requires precision and years to hone in on the expertise. After the garments are sewn, each trouser will be washed, dyed, trimmed, labeled, pressed, tagged, quality checked, folded, and packed before shipping.

This blog takes 3 minutes to read, the video on our Instagram is 29 seconds, and the actual chino garment production time is 3 months.

Making good products take time and experience. We hope you enjoy wearing our chinos and it keeps you in good company for a very long time.
