Whether you’re going to a summer outdoor wedding, or you’re a programmer in Silicon Valley or an exec working from home in the suburbs of Toronto, Echizenya makes pants for you that work harder and feel better than any other pants on the market. Granted, everyone has a particular style and fabric that works for them, so we’ll help you break down Echizenya’s new Spring/Summer 2021 collection at Blazer to help you find yours.
The Perfect Fit
With four different models, we’ve curated the fits that are right for you.
1. Slim & Tailored
Our most popular model, ‘703’, is a flat front style with a slim leg. For those who want a little more room (or need a bit more) we often go up one size and adjust the waistband if necessary. All ‘703’ fabrics are hybrid stretch and can be considered an everyday pant--wear with sneakers and a crew neck or dress them up with a sport jacket & dress shirt. This model seamlessly transitions for the occasion.
2. Double Pleated with a Drawstring Waistband
Model ‘749F’ adds some zhoosh to the ‘703’ for a more casual & fashion forward design. It maintains the slim silhouette but adds a double pleat front for a little extra room around the thighs, but wait, there’s more! ‘749F’ features an optional drawstring waistband offering a refined sweatpant-like aesthetic when worn casually. We internally call this model the ‘Permanent Vacation Pants’ as they are as comfortably casual as a stroll down the beach. Tuck the drawstring in and throw on a belt to double them as dress pants! Don’t worry, it’s our little secret.
3. Double Pleat with Ghurka
Model ‘426’ starts venturing into the fringes of cutting edge style. This model takes cues from sartorial tailoring while blending in modern silhouettes. The traditional sartorial accents like the double pleat front and ghurka fastener are coupled with modern technical improvements like the half shearing elasticized back waistband for comfort. The slight taper at the bottom gives this pant a tapered leg, making it our top pick for those who want to have fun with fashion without committing to the super relaxed look.
4. Relaxed Double Pleat
We’ll readily admit this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea! Model ‘620’ caters to the sartorially inclined and fashion forward crowd; those looking to push the trends forward, and to carve out their own visual signature. Model ‘620’ features our highest rise available, a double pleat front, brass side tabs and relaxed leg. Trousers like these must be paired with equally forward fitting shirts, jackets and sweaters for the right look.
The Perfect Fabric
The super lightweight stretch seersucker is our most popular summer fabric option. Woven to be breathable and stretchy, we’ve found over the years that this Japanese iteration of the classic cotton seersucker wears better and feels cooler. And since it’s a technical fabric, the pants are machine washable! For those hot summer days, we don’t think you’ll find a more comfortable fabric. You must try a pair for yourself to see what all the fuss is about.
The name says it all: Technical Stretch = comfort + easy care. We flew to Japan to develop this fabric category with the factory, so we’re serious when we say that these are our #1 year round pick. Whether it’s the Compact Jersey, Summer Chameleon Fabric or the all season in-stock Chameleon, every fabric has been curated to have great fabric retention, breathability and stretch… not to mention the easy care aspect and machine washing capabilities!
No summer wardrobe is truly complete without linen. The strength of the textile, the texture and natural breathability is unmatched in natural fibres. For a tailored wardrobe, linen works well to add depth to any outfit. [side note: check out our Inis Meáin Linen Sweater article here]
