Left Field NYC Launches An All-New Chino For A/W 2015-16
Word is reaching us from our Brooklyn-based buddies from Left Field NYC that a new, limited-edition chino is set to drop this autumn. The chino is currently on pre-order with most sizes still available, albeit with some becoming a little scarce.
This existing new chino is dubbed the Salt & Pepper due to the natural, varied greys of the highly-durable 14 oz. melange twill which has been sourced from Japan’s top-drawer Collect Mills. Left Field NYC are building on their winning formula of delivering a contemporary take on workwear of a bygone age when menswear routinely took a real beating but was built to last and still had to remain presentable.
Left Field’s Salt & Pepper chino continues in that vein. With more than a nod to the 1940s, it is tailored with a medium rise and slightly tapered straight leg. In other words, we are looking at a totally versatile wardrobe essential which effortlessly breezes from the workplace to leisure time; it is smart enough for all but the stuffiest of office environments yet it cuts it just as well with a classic white t-shirt and your favourite sneakers or boots.
To Cuff Or Not To Cuff
Hmm, that really is the question. Originally based on the first combat-ready military uniforms, chinos are firmly established as the digital warrior’s durable, flexible, go-to trouser – twinned with boat shoes, naturally.
But, most modern chinos are cut from an altogether lighter cloth and they have a hard time holding a cuff. This is where Collect’s 14 oz. twill is one for the purist and where it really comes in to its own; even a double-cuff stays sleek and tidy, and isn’t going to sag out by lunchtime unless – horror of horrors – it has been pressed to within an inch of its life or has been stitched in to place.
Of course, if you still can’t decide, just take advantage of Left Field NYC’s pro hemming service and let that be the end of it!
