At first, let me start by saying what a truly knock out pair of chinos the 727 are.

My qualms with chinos prior to these were that for me, they either fell into the “oversized” look on me, or the “oh dear god are your thighs able to breathe” category..

Thankfully, with the 727, I can move around when I feel like getting jiggy with it, and they still look smart thanks to the taper and moderately sized leg opening.

When it came to chinos as well, I would always size them in the inseam to wear with boots.. and if I wanted to wear them with trainers, I would have to cuff 2-4 times, as the legs opening were usually larger..

So Chesson and I were working on a project on a larger cuff chino until she showed me a trial image he did  on the khaki fabric - and it was love at first sight.

What we did was take an amazing chino, and size it to work perfectly for boots for a work ready pair of trousers that fit in with most crowds outside the opera.



The same cut and finish works idyllically with chucks and vintage trainers for those “after work” fits where you unbutton the collar and relax a little..




BUT WAIT!!! THERE’s MORE!!!

You would never know, but there is a cinch tucked into that neatly folded, vintage singer hemmed selvedge leg opening




So if you want to feel a little air along your ankles, show off your kicks, or go for a walk along the beach without sand getting into your cuffs, these are the combo for you!

(Cinch pulled all the way to exaggerate how snug you can get them)



So now, you can get ready for that summer barbecue and dress in style, and not have to worry about your Japanese chinos dragging in spilled BBQ sauce that your annoying neighbor Fred knocked over.



F*ck you Fred. F*ck you…




Luckily, I’m covered




And FWIW, you can ever so slightly cinch them
Without anyone really noticing, and take an 8.5” opening down to under 8” for an even more trim ankle without much crinkling of the hem fabric.

**in the future, I would hem 1-1.5” shorter than standard so the drape is cleaner when the cinch is pulled.. but we wanted to make sure it worked before I had a chino possibly too short :)

Thanks team! I will specify - I only worked up the cinch idea with Alex and Chesson and We applied it to the already great silhouette that is the 727.


If you buy the 727 off the site, it does not normally come with the cinch feature - that was an add on the team so kindly made a reality for me.

I think we will keep working on the idea with different fabrics and I’ll be sure to share all our findings!

In the mean time, I believe Chesson has plenty of grommets and toggles :)

Great idea and a fantastic collaboration on these chinos guys!!!
@Appfaff I like the way you think man.---You had the idea, the guys at IH made it a reality!

Like the fact that you can dress them up or down at a whim.

Big part of the reason for their success for sure.

Name me one other brand that caters to their customers needs like the crew we have in Gosport.
