Buckle Back Chino – Navy


The classic cotton chino is perhaps the most iconic of trousers in the Ivy pantheon. Our chino incorporates a 1960s silhouette featuring a higher rise, slim thigh and neat taper to the hem. Produced in a soft cotton these flat fronted chinos lend themselves equally well to casual wear, as well as within a more refined ensemble. Moreover, as a further nod to classic Mid Century Sta Press and tailored trousers, we have opted for a single button fastening through the rear pocket.

This buckle back iteration is a slice of pure Ivy League Boom Years Americana, incorporating a detail which could be found in all manner of trousers from the era, including chinos, dress pants and sta press. These are the chinos for those wishing to fly their Ivy flag high. Moreover, they serve a functional purpose allowing one to omit the use of a belt and adjust as needed.
