Freewheelers "Mcbain" Chinos

August 11, 2017


We always try to bring in more cool non-denim garments. The "Mcbain" is a classic chinos style from Freewheelers. The whole idea is to reproduce an 1920s early style chino and also enhance it with modern fitting and utilities.

Using a 100% chino fabric that custom made for Freewheelers. The fabric is in a 1920s vintage chinos style, soft and smooth but tough as well. The fabric has been once washed and the color appears in a vintage khaki way. 

The most interesting part is the construction. It is some craziest we ever seen! The chino has been constructed with so many different patterns with some wildest stitchings. Freewheelers take inspirations from the early age outdoor pants and mining pants, mixing them together. You will see the deep patch on front pockets of bush pants, cinch back with single back pocket of miner pants together. Freewheelers double layered the pants from knee above, so it is still great to wear in the winter. Also, if you wear out the knee part, there is still one layer underneath and you don't have to do patch them. 

"Mcbain" is in a high tapered fit with a mid rise, roomy thigh part and a narrow leg opening. Either you want to rock with boots or sneakers or you want to wear them in a "over-sized" style as our model did, they are always some best choice! Trust me, this is something made for the true players!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
