YKK Zippers and brass buttons
I got myself two pairs when I realised that the canvas fabric was a 14oz. selvedge. I had already purchased a Kangto pair way back, which outclass my Levi’s 501 button fly by a mile- and that’s saying something. I was confident of the output, but when my Cairos arrived, I was blown away by the quality of the materials and the artsmanship of it all. I wear it every day now. The fabric is hard and will take some breaking into- that’s what I love. It’s as old-school as they come. The cut itself is smart and perfect for the urban worker. Love what these guys are doing. Keep it up!
I could have never imagined a Japanese quality pant in India by an Indian house. Definitely wanted it. Now I have it. The canvas jean is heavy and fits well. The team at Monks took my size from a Japanese selvedge denim I have (Handroom ). The fabric takes shape of your body within few hours of wear and the construction is rugged and industrial. The belt loops, and the back pockets indicate how intricately the design has been thought through. I got one in beige and immediately ordered the one in ecru. Eyeing a third now, perhaps blue. Cheers!
These are one of the very stylish and rare garments. Rare because canvas is a very difficult fabric to handle. The customer service at Monks were very responsive and persistent in ensuring the right quality jeans were made and delivered over a couple of iterations. I am delighted with the final product and thanks to their high engagement I feel invested in shaping this garment. A living example of personalization.
