Earlier this summer, we brought the new Blue In Green Original Work Chino out to the west coast. We followed two friends cycling through San Francisco–past the rolling dunes at Ocean Beach, up the steep hills of Noe Valley, and alongside the quaint Victorians of historic Haight Ashbury–to give the chinos a real test run.

Because we chose a sanforized and mercerized 100% Japanese cotton twill, the Work Chino is more able to withstand daily wear and tear–the kind you’ll especially get with urban cycling. Plus these textile-finishing treatments will allow the chino to acquire a patina the more you wear them, just like great denim. Below are a selection of shots from the trip.
