Dry & Finish

Cotton chinos can withstand tumble drying with high heat. To ease ironing, remove from the dryer while still damp or line dry.

Cotton has a maximum shrinkage capacity. A garment will shrink once using high heat or gradually using low heat.
Always launder chino pants prior to making any alterations in fit or length. Use hot water and a hot dryer cycle to ensure there will be no further shrinkage.

To remove wrinkles, iron on the highest temperature setting, or steam.

For a crisp finish and added wrinkle and stain resistance, spray with Stiffen Up when ironing.

To freshen between launderings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic.

Chinos can be hung to prevent wrinkles, or folded (which may leave fold marks).

Always store items clean. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.

All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
