Unis Spring / Summer 2011 Bottoms

Mar 13, 2011

Unis has unveiled two new pant styles this season to follow their highly successful Gio chinos. For a long time the Gio has been touted by many as the perfect chino; crafted from a comfortable mid-weight cotton in a slim cut with a unique button fly enclosure. I tried the Gio out myself a couple of times but the cut was a little too slim for my taste. It was a great disappointment given that the pants were more comfortable than any pajama bottom I've ever owned, but I wasn't going to walk around in pants that didn't fit right.

Logan in chestnut, $198
The first of the new pant styles is the Logan. The closest of the three style to military chino specs, it sports your standard button fly, slash front pockets, and button through flap back pockets. The top block (hip and thigh region) is cut fuller while the leg opening remains slim. This style is probably best suited for larger men; the type with thighs bigger than your head.

Ford in marine, $228
The second style is the Ford. Essentially the dress chino of the lot due to its streamlined silhouette and hidden slide-clasp closure, this is probably my favorite style. Overall its cut fuller than the Gio, so of all the styles it would seem to suit me best. I also prefer its medium rise (measured from the crotch seam to the top of the pant) for it makes for a more comfortable seat and will keep shirts tucked in better.

Gio in khaki, $159.60
If the Gio still sounds like the cut for you, Unis still has a lot of sizes and colors on sale. And if you're unsure of your size, you can always email customerservice@unisnewyork.com or try some on in their shop at 226 Elizabeth Street.
