Heritage Research Saigon Tailored Chino

Just in time to coincide with the folding up of your shorts for the colder seasons, these exceptional chinos from Heritage Research are on sale at One Eight Nine. From the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, the Saigon chino definitely showcases the designer’s military influences. The collection was influenced particularly by the Vietnam war-era counter culture of the 1960s and 1970s. Named after Saigon – capital of South Vietnam – this trouser sees a modern take on a staple uniform piece, offering up a slim, tapered fitting chino completely handmade in England. Heritage Research has really taken care of the details in these chinos, including the custom black RiRi zip, the english horn buttons, and the 100% blue cotton chambray on the waistband, pocket bags and hems. The chambray is one of the details that strikes me the most, particularly around the hems, as they look great rolled up. Sadly, with an inseam of 32 inches they’ll always be a little short for me, but they’d be great on anyone with slightly shorter than my giraffe legs. They’re available from the One Eight Nine store, and are very much on sale, selling for £50 down from £125.
