We source our neutral oat cotton fabric from the famous Tessuti de Sondrio Mill in Italy. The lightweight fabric has a crisp woven texture ideal for the warmer weather. The fit is based on our best selling Besterios Chino – with just the right amount lopped off for a classic length. We’ve included two side angled front pockets and two jetted back pockets with a horn button to complement the waist button and a zip fastening. Inside, all the seams are impeccably bound in a lightweight tonal soft cotton. Team up with our Ravenshead Oat shirt for a coordinated look.

Stylish Chino Style Shorts

A very good quality and stylish pair of shorts.
Love the tan colour and the look is great.
Slightly loose around the waist (I am normally a 32inch) but not sure I'd go so far as to drop a size as some reviewers have suggested.
Definitely a cut above average.
