The Story 

We've been making khakis for the last 4 years. Disappointed with the way khakis were being made (mass produced and ill-fitting) and how they were being delivered to you (retail stores), we decided to make a change.  Here is how:

1.  Better Quality - We source only the finest materials available.

2.  Perfect Fit - You can't have a good pant without a good fit.  We offer 3 proven fits that we've perfected and market tested over the last 4 years. 

3.  Made in America - Our pants are carefully crafted in the South by a top American manufacturer with over 40 years experience in pant making. This is something we take a great deal of pride in and will always support domestic partnerships.   

4. 100% Guaranteed - 365 day returns. Free shipping. Free return shipping. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, we pay for you to send them back - no risk, no questions asked.

5.  Sold Direct - We save you TIME & MONEY.  A khaki of this quality and Made in USA would cost over $150 in retail stores.

Our khakis are made to be the best. We strive for the highest quality and greatest attention to detail in every pair. Our khakis are the perfect balance of fit, quality, and consistency.

Our Experience

We've been in the pant game for the last 4 years.  We've worked and built lasting relationships with the best fabric mills and manufacturers facilities the US has to offer.  To date, we’ve successfully launched 3 fits and many variations of our core khaki.  We've built a loyal following and reputation for top quality product and outstanding service.

Our Commitment 

1. Make the best khakis in the world 

2. Provide exceptional customer service 

3. Remain loyal to you, our customer, by delivering products that always meet your high standards

Risks and challenges

We've made thousand of high quality khakis over the last 4 years and completed many successful production runs with the same manufacturer, so we know what we're doing. We work very close with our manufacturer to make sure we always deliver a top quality product.

Still, we know that experience doesn’t completely eliminate all the risks going forward.

Timing is the biggest risk. We've already booked production space with our manufacturers when the campaign closes, but that does not 100% guarantee hitting all your timing benchmarks. In the small chance that we do experience any delays, we will be sure to keep up date on expected delivery date. With that being said, we don't anticipate any issues.
