Chinos take their name from the fabric they are made from. Chino cloth is a cotton twill originally developed for the military. This version of what is now a classic casual pant is made from 9oz Japanese selvedge chino cloth. Iron Heart offers a number of different chino pants, this is the slimmest and arguably the most modern cut we make.
All measurements are specific to this product. The best way to determine the size you need is to find a similar item that fits you well, then measure the same way we do (see "How We Measure" tab) and compare with the measurements on the table below. Actual measurements for the same Iron Heart item/tag size can vary somewhat so if a specific dimension is important to you (for example arm length) please ask us to check this before we ship by adding a note to your order. Measurements for raw denim garments are pre-soak (allowance must be made for shrinkage).

- "Cold mercerisation" retains and enhances the sheen of the chino cloth
- The holes in the selvedge seam come from the process of cold mercerisation. We have to physically stabilise the fabric to Mercerise it. It is unusual for anyone to cold mercerise a chino fabric, so normally the holes are not seen as the edge of the fabric is cut to waste. This is not a defect.
