The Chino Goes Way Back

The history of the chino goes way back. Nowadays people are using the word chino as a name for a style of trousers, but in fact it’s the name of a 100% cotton twill cloth. Developed by Sir Harry Lumsden in 1848 while stationed in India, he mixed a combination of coffee, curry and mulberries for dye to camouflage his white uniform. The shade was named khaki after the Hindi word for ‘dust’.

After World War II, the plain front trousers and chino’s were a common sight on college campuses and Hollywood followed soon. It ended up that leading a generation to define chinos as a symbol of effortlessly cool American style.

Inspired By Old Military Pants

The Blue de Gênes Paulo Pavia Chino is inspired by old military pants. The chino is designed with double belt loops and tripple stitching along the pockets for longer durability. The brand flag rivet is subtle placed at the right front pocket. The waistband label has been given a special treatment for a vintage look. The back pockets are double-lined for extra durability.

The chino is available in several garment dyed colours as Navy, Sand, Khaki, Green and Walnut Grey to name a few. It’s produced in Italy as all their jeans.
