  • Product with ethical values.
Paying homage to a style that can be dated back to the 17th century, our trousers take inspiration from the features of classic painters’ trousers, including the use of sturdy canvas fabric, slit pockets and volume for mobility. Elegant elements are added with an oversized and tapered silhouette, tightly woven fabric, darts, and a cropped length, all contributing to keep beautiful lines. Ethical luxury is achieved through the use of 100% organic fine cotton textile, coloured with subtle and sophisticated hues from natural dyestuffs, complemented by a comfortable liner made from finest typewriter fabric (plain weave). Available in two materials and three colours, including the Anthracite (charcoal) nylon model, constructed from recycled nylon and plant-based materials, it offers exceptional waterproof and breathable properties, making it well-equipped to withstand adverse weather conditions such as rain and snow.


The finest quality canvas fabric, which brings a pleasant texture unique to cotton, is an ESC original textile created through the excellent craftsmanship of a canvas maker in Shiga Prefecture. This maker has inherited and preserved the traditional Takashima sailcloth quality for generations. Only natural-origin materials, including pigments are used throughout the entire process. It is woven with unbleached yarns to enhance the comfortably rich texture and colour of the high-quality cotton. 


A custom-made typewriter (plain weave) fabric is used to provide premium comfort, woven by an acclaimed textiles manufacturer established in 1928 within Shizuoka prefecture's renowned Enshu cotton textiles district. The high-density, smooth textile, created from 100% organic cotton yarn, is intricately woven on a traditional shuttle loom, which requires advanced craftsmanship. It also offers a comfortable range of motion for the arms, in addition to moisture absorption and temperature retention properties. The cotton yarn remains unbleached to preserve the natural texture and colour of the cotton.


Our focus was on harnessing the rich colours of traditional Japanese mineral dyeing, an ancient technique believed to enhance the suppleness of the thread, as well as offering insect-repellent and deodorising properties.
The unique iron powder dyeing procedure was meticulously carried out by skilled dyeing artisans at a renowned studio in Tokyo, using upcycled iron powder sourced from shipbuilders in the Hiroshima-prefecture. This mineral dye evokes the authentic colour and texture of iron itself. The natural changes in both the colour and texture are to be enjoyed, much like with indigo-dyed denim garments.

[ Due to the nature of the dye, changes in texture and gradual colour fading are to be expected as a result of friction over time.]


Buttons are made of natural palm nut material and are manufactured by a Japanese button manufacturer.

ATTENTION [Mineral pigment dye] 

This iron powder dyeing is done by hand by dyeing artisans, so there is some unevenness in the colour. Due to the nature of the dye, changes in texture and colour fading due to friction will occur over time. The natural changes in colour and texture are to be enjoyed, similar to indigo-dyed denim garments.
To keep the original colour and texture as long as possible and prevent the pigment from peeling off, please dry-clean the fabric inside out with a weak petroleum-based dry-cleaner and avoid tumbler-drying (hang-drying is recommended). Wear and store in dry conditions as prolonged exposure to moisture and high temperatures may cause discolouration, colour migration and odours.
