Tapered Chino - Carlisle Twill

(31 reviews) Write a Review

Tapered leg, button-fly Chino.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA of US-woven 9 oz twill and finished at the legendary Carlisle Finishing Co. (ca. 1956) in Carlisle, South Carolina. Fit guide:


When you put your choppers into a good meal, the brain can quickly go to "what are we having for dessert?" before the first bite. I suppose we asked ourselves the same question when we started making blue jeans 12 years ago, but instead of my signature peanut butter / chocolate / banana shake, we set our sights on well made Chinos, much like the same pants we tracked down in the early 80's from the military supply shops. Ours are made with a beautiful twill fabric by Carlisle in South Carolina and cut and sewn in San Francisco.

    Excellent material, fit and tailoring. Only issue is button fly, which I do not like. My own fault as that was in the description. Good product and service.

    Best chinos I’ve ever had

    By far the best chinos I’ve owned. The quality is unmatched. Love the taper, the thickness of the fabric, and they just look so damn good.

    Great Quality Chino with a comfortable fit. These are not your skinny slim chinos but are not your typical Dad pants either. that being said they have a comfortable cut to them. The shipping was extremely fast and the guys are quick to answer any questions about the products. Thanks Tony

    Love these pants!

    I have had Tellason jeans for a number of years now and being someone who cannot wear them to work I went for a pair of olive fatigue pants a few years ago to wear to the office. I love the fit of the JGM jeans and slim fit fatigue pants and decided to try the tapered fit chinos when they arrived at Berkeley Supply here in Colorado. Loved them so much I ordered a second pair for my rotation. Compared to the OrSlow slim fit army trouser that I also enjoy I would say the Tellason twill is a little heavier and does not wrinkle in the wash as much. I typically cold wash gentle only when needed and hang dry- then use a steamer to smooth out and shrinkage has been very minimal and they get more comfortable with each wear. Highly recommend these pants!

    Ordered my true size and found the waist a bit generous. Washed em and had them taken in and they haven’t left my legs since. Very comfortable and plenty of space to maneuver.

    Outstanding chinos

    Really pleased with these pants. The fabric is light enough for summer but still fells substantial. The cut is just right on the taper. Not too skinny, not too drapey. I bought my normal tag size. They were a bit generous in the waist when raw, so I gave them a warm wash and dried them on low temp. Now the fit it perfect! Be aware that the inseam is fairly long. I'm 6'3" with long legs, and a single cuff makes them a perfect length. Also, the construction is great. Tucked belt loops and nice button fly with double buttons at the waist. Leg seams are chain stitched but not double-felled. but this give a clean but still slightly rugged look. Looking forward to the wear and aging on these and will probably buy a straight leg pair, too, eventually.
