Lofgren WWII Chinos

These are some of the best chino's I've seen in a loooooong time! Out now, so get em' while they are available. Here's the scoop straight from John Lofgren:

"We got our first small run of my 1937 pattern chinos. These are made from 8.2 oz. 100% cotton twill (think Cramerton or West Point Mill's Army cloth). The pockets and waist lining are heavy drill. Correct early style double welted back and watch pockets and slash hip pockets. Leg and seat seams are felled. The button fly uses the WWI style zinc US Army buttons, which were found on some of the early WWII army trousers. These are one washed so customers can simply order their size. No guessing. These went through several pattern adjustments to get them just right. The goal was to create a perfect chino pant for myself, ones that if I found somewhere I'd say, "oh, I better buy 4 or 5 pairs because I'll need these until I die." I'm looking forward to the comparisons of other makers of this style chino. I feel these are not only better made, but better fitting. As I needed to see how the size grading turned out we ran a small production of 30 pairs. The grading from size 30 to size 40 was perfect so this first small run is available to the public now. Price is 15800 JPY plus shipping. Contact us at to purchase. Thanks!"
