Freewheelers 13oz M-1942 HBT Chinos (Khaki)

Make peace not war!

Inspired by the US Army military chinos, these are re-imagined with details of civilian clothing of the 1940s.

This style has been part of Freewheelers for years and each season they’ve been getting better and better! So we’re bringing you the best ones yet, after all this is CORL!

With the black coated hardware, with time the inner iron core will shine through as the coating flakes away. The herringbone twill fabric has a soft texture feeling with nice vertical contrast. The brand new condition already has soul, it’s been once washed and ready to wear!

FW's really know how to create three-dimensional patterns also the waistband and seat have darts to make up for a better, relaxed fit.
