Epaulet x American Trench Rivet Chino in Indigo Ikat
We are excited to present the boldest iteration to date of Epaulet's signature casual trouser, the Rivet Chino in indigo ikat cotton.
Handwoven in India of midweight 100% cotton yarn, this genuine ikat is one of the most exceptional fabrics that we've ever offered. Crafted in the traditional textile center of Bhoodan Pochampally, it requires a highly skilled and labor-intensive system of blocking and dyeing individual yarns to weave a complex repeating pattern which flows on both the face (outside) and the interior of the garment. The colors - indigo blue, pale grey, red and black - are bold and striking, and the trousers are absolutely stunning from every angle. Due to the large overall pattern, no two pieces are exactly alike. This is a testament to traditional craftsmanship and it makes up into a truly exceptional piece.
The Rivet Chino has the slim, tapered profile and medium-low rise of a jean, but the traditional pockets of a chino or trouser
Five pockets: two front hand pockets, two rear pockets, and a hidden coin pocket at the front waistband
Interior construction reflects a meticulous attention to detail
Finished with heavy-gauge brass zipper and custom-dyed corozo nut button fly
CARE NOTE: We highly recommend washing before wear, as we've experienced a little color rub when worn with light colors. Machine washable in cool water, but highly recommend air drying to maintain the fit.
The sizing and shape of the Rivet Chino are true to size. The inseam will shrink approximately 0.5" after washing, so please launder your Rivet Chinos before hemming.
All measurements below are taken with the pants laid flat. Waist is measured across the top of the waistband while the front portion is laid over the back. Rise is measured from the intersection point of the crotch seams to the top of the front waistband. Inseam is measured from the same point at the crotch to the leg opening. Thigh is measured from the lowest point of the crotch across the leg.
Each Rivet Chino is made by a handful of skilled operators at our Downtown Los Angeles facility. Every piece is cut and assembled by hand, and their proficiency is evident in the clean finishing and consistent stitching on each garment. These are among the finest and most meticulously made garments in the United States.
