The Japanese brand Buzz Rickson's are today counted among the few high-end reproduction manufacturers of military and casual garments in the world! They strive to make true replicas by carefully researching and analyzing original vintage garments, taking great care to duplicate the material while paying close attention to technique and quality with the goal to bring back old forgotten techniques and machines needed to make garments of outstanding quality without compromises.
This is Buzz Rickson's reproduction of the classic chino pants worn by the USAAF throughout WW2. Produced today to full military spec from that time. These pants have a high waist that reaches up to the actual waist a couple of centimeters above the bellybutton. In combination with a good width in the legs you get that formal but at the same time comfortable style that we associate with a well dressed fashion from the middle of last century.
These chinos are unwashed but they won't shrink notably, however if you are in between two sizes we recommend you to go for the larger size. The fabric is dense, stiff and shiny at the beginning just like vintage originals but will will soften when worn and washed a few times. The shine will also come off and the cotton will get soft and faded just like a pair of original vintage 40 pair of pants!
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of pants from us! Give us a comment or an email when you place your order and we will shorten them before we send them to you.
