But I suppose if you mix the two, the result might equal Thee Captain?

Few pictures of Muffy these days (sigh) but still a blog that I check on regularly.

Spied a pair of authentic khakis in MINT vintage in Dalston/Stoke Newington earlier, they were size 32 zip fastening proper full cut princely sum of 45 if you are near by Tommy.

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

Picked up a pair of the Silvermans today, 13" rise in the 30" waist leg opening is 9 3/4" which I think I will taper to 9"as still want a fuller cut, and take a little off the length. The online store shows them having a zip but mine are button fly

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

Ok, so got these back from the alteration guys, as I mentioned had an inch off the hem width as felt they would look a bit fancy dress at the original measurement, these are now just a sniff under 9"

Worn for the first time today, in rather mild weather they were great, wore my Pendleton Topsman over what is show here, my hands have pushed the seat flat, I guess I could maybe lose a bit more fabric in this area but it might alter the lines so for now the stay as is. For 20 they are a cracking, probably the UK equivalent of the Stan Rays, as a solid no nonsense khaki chino with an amazing rise wha is not to like, add on 19 for the alterations and still less than the usual high street Chinese made tat.

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

Looking good Tom, though I'd prefer a slimmer cut, probably 8.5 and below. Wonder if I could get a pair of those over here, 20 quid (around $40 here) even with alterations seems like a pretty good deal to me, especially considering the rise. Would'a liked a photo without the sweatshirt to see how the proportions would play out.

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

There are 3 shots there, 2 without the sweat.

Obviously this is the wider leg chino thread hence posting here, no reason you couldn't taper more though.

I would prefer them with turn ups, but that's personal taste. But they look good and they're ideal for a knock about chino. Well done Tom, another source has been identifie!

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

Toyed with the idea of the cuff woof but all my other trousers have them and fancied these to be more casual, like JFK on the boat, hoping they wash out and soften up for that look.

Great stuff T,
I've ordered a couple of pair to experiment with after Xmas.

what's the fabric weight like on those T?
for that money it's worth me giving them a go.

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

Similar to what I guess is regular chino cotton, although I no longer have my Stan Ray's I seem to remember them being a similar weight.

I don't have any of the others to compare, but at 20 it's not a bank breaker.

Re: The wider 50s/ The Korean War Chino

If anyone in the UK has a Costco near them,they are selling Dockers with a nice wide leg and reasonably high rise. Not dissimilar to these Tom.

They are also permanent press.Picked up a pair last week for 25

Chinos look great Tom, well done. I've been wearing my Korean War era khakis quite a bit lately. I haven't messed with the fit, but then I am a flapperizerer myself these days, haha..

Ha, if they were original I would have left them, think there is decent flappage - will of course look for some actual Korean era numbers too.

Bump for this thread. Not sure if these have been mentioned.
Too wide a hem for me but great rise and cinch back.
The suspender buttons are concealed on the inside of the waistband and are just standard plastic ones so look like they could be removed easily. Or just ignored and not utilised.
The rest of the gear...not for me.
