It’s hot out. Not like “let’s find a shady spot and hang in the park” type of hot, but like “my eyebrows are a recognized body of water” type of hot. It’s so hot in most of the northern hemisphere that pants have been reduced to a theoretical concept or a distant memory, but for those of you that aren’t under a Heat Dome* or other varieties of heat warning, I imagine these Companion Denim Jan 019CO “Deck Chino #3’s” are intriguing in all the right kind of ways.
(*A real thing, I learned, not just something meteorologists made up.)
Made with a “rough and hairy” 84/16 selvedge cotton/bamboo blend with a tan core-spun sewing thread throughout, these laidback pants feature a shell stitch fly, removable cord belt, six doubled belt loops, ‘engineered’ chino front pockets with an exposed coin pocket at the right, flapped patch pockets at the back, a branded leather patch at the back, indigo-dyed corozo buttons, chainstitch hems and a regular fit that tapers a bit through the leg.
While “rough and hairy” doesn’t sound like the most relaxing leg casing, the chino silhoutte’s extra room should neutralize whatever fears you have on that front. And about that silhouette: it’s good. There’s more to say about it (I say size up because I’m insufferable), but there also isn’t. Like, it’s just good.
