Originally issued to American soldiers during WWII, the first military chinos were celebrated for their comfort, versatility, and battle-ready ruggedness. Featuring 100% organic cotton and an updated silhouette, The Foundation Pant is our elevated reimagining of the all-purpose originals, built to help you start your day on solid ground.
The Foundation Pant project started when we discovered some deadstock military chino material and decided to reverse engineer it with 100% organic cotton. We chose a balanced weight (8-oz.) and opted for a tight weave using mercerized yarns, giving The Foundation Pant a smooth hand feel and improved durability. Because it’s been garment dyed and washed, it has the character of a well-loved vintage piece, and it’ll continue to pick up a ton of nuance with wear. Cool herringbone accents at the waistband and the pockets serve as a nod to the style’s military origins.
