Lightweight Cotton Poplins - Model M1P Relaxed Fit Forward Pleat in Khaki by Bills KhakisAdd to Wishlist
While 8.5-oz. cotton twill was considered the standard weight for World War II uniform fabric, it was almost replaced in the Pacific theater by a cotton poplin similar to what you see before you here. Stateside field testing in Florida proved it to be cooler and more comfortable in hot weather. Mercifully, the war ended before new uniforms could be produced. Less is truly more wherever staying cool is a way of life.
Note: Our tailors add 1/2" to your selected inseam length to account for shrinkage.
Made in the USA of imported fabric.
The Thinking Behind Bills
The inherent character of a hard to find pair of old style khakis makes Bills as much fun to market as they are to own. But it's why we make Bills the way we do that makes them even more unique. Bills are made better just for the sake of it...purely for the satisfaction of making a great product. It's an approach to business not found much anymore and the true source of our product's integrity. Of course, it's the finished product that our customers ask for by name.
What Makes Bills Better
Consider the time, the effort, and the money invested in replacing your favorite old pair of Khakis. Usually, you end up with something you don't like, don't wear, and don't care about. The costly and frustrating result is a personal stock pile of unwanted khakis. While wearing Bills Khakis, you will feel comfortable, solid and pleased. You will share this satisfaction with others who value good things. And when you decide it is time for a second pair, you'll know better.
