Charlie chinos: Designer Notes

I don’t think I have ever had a design where I knew what I was going to name it long before sitting down to actually create it. Charlie Chinos was just too good to not make happen.

It took a while because it took a long time before Titan was in a state where I was happy with it. Trousers are hard. Trouser blocks double so.

This is for the most part a rather straight-forward chino pattern, but it has one twist: The front packets are placed on the side seam. That side seam wraps around towards the front to give the slanted pocket look.

It’s a bit of unusual and creative design that I guess I did because I can? Anyway, it’s something to be mindful of because if you do not expect it the front panels look a bit weird.
