Crafted in the same workshop as our jeans, the fabric as with our denim is prewashed in industrial washing machines before it is cut. This makes the fabric softer and more stable and removes the majority of the possible shrinkage, allowing consistency of fit between fabrics. There are over one thousand cottons, canvases, corduroys, moleskins, twills, linens, wools and limited edition prints to choose from. Many of our cottons come from Brisbane Moss in Lancashire, who know a thing or two about cotton, having woven and sold it for over a century.
There are ten basic front pocket designs from vertical on the seam to frog style as on a jean, a choice of belt loops (for normal or wider Western style belts) or side adjusters, and various back pocket designs. We have also created special pockets for clients to hold diverse things such as lighters, cigar cutters, chapsticks, and medication to name just a few. The shape of the leg can be specified or replicated from your favourite pair of trousers and any other stylistic preferences are noted during your initial fitting.
Particular care and attention has been placed on the internal construction of the trouser, not purely for the sake of aesthetics, but to make softer, more comfortable and durable garments. The khakis feature our signature red pocketing and shirting quality striped waistband that is softer than the turned fabric of mass production khakis, high quality Japanese zippers or hand sewn mother of pearl or corozo fly buttons. The inside raw fabric edges of the fly have been bound in our red cotton binding made of pocketing, like on our bespoke trousers. Only the best to keep your private bits chaff free.
For our lighter coloured fabrics or for more conservative clients, the trouser pocketing and waistband can be made in a soft cream herringbone cotton, or in a fabric of their choice. There are always examples on display in our store of our latest creations of khakis which can be in Japanese samurai prints, Kashmiri paisleys, French floral designs or flaming red thick wale corduroy for starters. With the extensive fabric selection, wash choices, fit preferences, pocket and waistband details, a truly unique pair of Udeshi khakis can be made for you. The minimum order is one pair of khakis.
