Suggested Fabrics

Suitable for light to mid-weight woven fabrics with no stretch such as linen, cotton (e.g. twill, chambray), hemp, tencel, or silk. Lighter weight canvas, denim, or wool may also be used. Fabrics with a more fluid drape will result in pants that look and feel more ‘flowy’, while more structured fabrics will result in pants that have more volume and hold their shape through the leg. If using a heavier weight fabric, it’s recommended to cut the pocket bag from a lighter weight lining fabric and attach the pocket facing.

Versions shown below are using the following fabrics:

  • Black pants (view A) – 7oz linen
  • Tan pants (view A) – 8.5oz washed cotton canvas
  • Brown pants (view B) – 6oz linen
  • Beige shorts (view C) – 6oz yarn-dyed linen
  • Blue pants (view B) – 5oz washed linen
  • White pants (view A) – 6.5oz laundered linen twill
  • Black shorts (view C) – 5oz washed linen
