Hey guys!

We're running a great new project with Hertling trousers, and I think that these products resonate pretty well with the CM crowd. This preorder is open until Tuesday 9/13 and delivery is slated for end of October. All sizes are available to order, and there's 2 fits and 9 fabrics to choose from. As always, these are made from start to finish in the USA. Hertling operates out of Fall River, Massachusetts. Retail on these ranges from $250 to $295 (depending on fabric), and we've split the payment into 50% up front, and 50% prior to shipping.

SEE THE PROJECT ON OUR WEBSITE HERE

For the past year or so, we've fielded a bunch of requests for a baggy chino pant. Not something oversized and shapeless, but something with a nicely fitted waist, a full thigh and knee, and a subtle taper at the bottom. Our friends at Hertling Trousers do this better than anyone, so we connected with them on a new shape. May I introduce... The Thompson...

Inspired by the soft construction of military uniform trousers, the Thompson's main feature is a traditional "Hollywood" style waistband. Rather than being a distinct piece of fabric, the Hollywood waistband is made by folding the trouser fabric over at the waist. This gives it a comfortable, contoured fit and a cool vintage look. Its other features include a button-through closure, metal zip fly, and besom coin pocket. The inseams are unfinished at 36".

If you like this overall style but you'd prefer a slimmer leg and more medium rise, then we offer our original fit - the "Garand." Full size charts for both models are on our site, and you can always email us ([email protected]) for personalized guidance. When you order, you can choose a specific inseam length so that your chinos arrive hemmed and finished.

We've got you covered on sizing and fit. Now onto the fabrics! Both the Thompson and the Garand patterns have been designed for selvedge outseams. This is a very cool detail when you roll up the cuffs..

For traditional "chino fabrics" we have two Japanese selvedge twills and one British non-selvedge will. First fabric is the gorgeous khaki twill shown above, and here are the other two...

That's about it! Feel free to post any questions or comments here... I'll check in every day of the project to personally reply.

For anyone wondering how a full chino with the Thompson can match to a slimmer jacket, check out this pairing with our new waxed cotton "Karras" jacket...

GARAND & THOMPSON TROUSERS: SELVEDGE TWILL, DENIM & MOLESKIN PRE-ORDER CLOSES TONIGHT AT 12 PST

IG Cover.jpg


Hey guys here's some mock ups of the Garand and Thompson made up with the fabric options.

Inspired by the soft construction of military uniform trousers, the Thomspon & Garand's main feature is a traditional "Hollywood" style waistband. Rather than being a distinct piece of fabric, the Hollywood waistband is made by folding the trouser fabric over at the waist. This gives it a comfortable, contoured fit and a cool vintage look. Its other features include a button-through closure, metal zip fly, and besom coin pocket. The inseams are unfinished at 36".

If you are familiar with our chinos, the we recommend ordering your typical size. The Garand is a great fit for anyone who wears the Walt or the Rivet Chino. The Thompson has the most generous leg that we've ever designed, and as such is great for anyone who wears the Rudy, Wilhelm, Taylor or Nico. Or for Walt/Rivet customers who want to try a fuller fit.

Each pair is hand-assembled at Hertling trousers in Fall River, Massachusetts. We are confident they will be some of the best trousers you have ever owned.

Also, one last thing regarding Hertling... I did an IG live chat yesterday with Justin Christensen of Hertling. You can hear all about the pre-order chinos and see inside their new facility in Massachusetts.

They have a small and dedicated team of artisans, and these pants are going to be wonderful. It's always a great thing when you can see exactly where your purchase is going. You can view the preorder item and learn more about it here.
