Chinos are the crème de la crème of casual pants, just the sort of bottoms to make you toss your joggers into the back of your closet. And if you've been off the chino train for a minute, right now is a great time to hop back aboard—after a decade or so of slim fits dominating the conversation, brands are shifting back toward a straight-fit silhouette that's more comfortable, universally wearable, and altogether timeless.
The new ONI chinos have got the 727 higher-waisted, wider-legged chino cut. Although looking just like jeans, upon closer inspection, all the classic chino features reveal themselves. Slanted front pockets and welted back pockets. If you want the raw denim look, but your office dress code outlaws jeans, consider the ONI Super Low tension 12oz Chinos one of the coolest looking loopholes ever.
The fabric is a 12oz khaki beige sulphur dyed denim made of American and Peruvian cotton blend. Oni invested a lot of time experimenting with super low-tension denim with an extremely uneven texture and high breathability. We have never seen a crazy slubby texture in a 12oz denim before.
This chino pant is made with superior-quality details such as copper doughnut buttons. In addition, it features a classic cotton sewn-on patch and heavy-duty cotton pocket bags.
The legend of ONI is alive to this day. In recent years Oishi-San has devoted himself to experimenting with widely varying grammages, rough textures, different indigo dyeing techniques and novelty cuts while always maintaining a very limited production and wielding his experience in denim which now goes back more than 60 years.
