Country of Origin: United States
As the name implies, the "EZ Pant" is laid-back and supremely comfortable. Worn with a t-shirt and trainers or a woven shirt and dress shoes, it jives effortlessly with most items that you already own... whilst cutting a distinctive and fresh silhouette. It's flattering for those who take any of our trouser fits (Walt, Rudy, Rivet, Wilhelm, etc).
This stunning pant is crafted in 100% cotton 12oz Sashiko pique. This intricate fabric is woven in Japan and typically used for Kendo, Aikido, and Judo uniforms. It's both extremely strong and very comfortable. Each garment is dyed in a deep blue indigo organic reactive dye for a rich color tone. The garment will fade beautifully with normal wash and wear - gaining exceptional character due to the thick pique weave structure.
Its single pleat shape has a slightly higher rise and balances a comfortable relaxed fit in the top block with a strong, modern taper after the fullest part of the calf. A fabric belt is included for true "EZ" wear, but that can be removed and replaced with a traditional leather belt if needed. The 35" inseam is finished with a quarter-inch hem, and its intended to be rolled up. A zip fly and rear besom button pockets finish it off.
This EZ Pant is a great stand-in for denim, and matches effortlessly to casual jackets and sportcoats. It's easy to care for, effortless to wear, and unmatched in its ratio of quality to price.
12oz 100% Cotton Japanese Sashiko Pique
Also known as our classic pure cotton Sashiko cloth is woven in Japan for use in martial arts uniforms. Known as Dogi (cloth of the way), this fabric has a thick pique weave with well-defined "rice gain" structure. This technique offers three benefits: it allows natural stretch and flexing with movement, it absorbs moisture and stays away from your skin and it gains exceptional tensile strength.. far above a comparable twill weave.
Each Sashiko EZ Pant is made up in neutral off-white fabric and then dipped into a deep blue indigo reactive dye. The cloth readily absorbs the dye.. gaining a gorgeous and consistent tone and an extremely soft hand. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a particularly nice patina with wear. The dye will tend to fade more on the tops of the "rice grains.." yielding a totally unique appearance to each garment.
Made in Los Angeles
Each unit is made by a handful of skilled operators at our Downtown Los Angeles facility. Every piece is cut and assembled by hand, and their proficiency is evident in the clean finishing and consistent stitching on each garment. These are among the finest and most meticulously made garments in the United States.
For sizing, we suggest to order your typical waist size. The shape runs a touch large, so it will fit a bit bigger than our typical trouser by design.
All measurements are shown in inches. Waist is measured with the waistband laid flat and doubled. Thigh is measured from the lowest point of the crotch (laid flat) straight across the thigh. Leg opening is the width of the bottom hem. Rise is measured from the lowest point of the crotch (laid flat) to the top of the waistband.
