Askov Finlayson

    Explorer Pant - True Black


    View our Askov Finlayson Explorer Pant in Deep NavyGolden KhakiTwo Tone, Pine Green, Oxblood, and Juniper Green.

    The Explorer Pant is what you wear for forays in town and in the woods all year long. They’re the perfect pants for just about any activity you can throw at them, from bike commuting to yard work. The custom-dyed cotton canvas that we source from Japan’s Kurabo Mills is comfortable yet hard-wearing. Seat and knee reinforcements will take years of punishment and come out looking better with age. A button fly, deep pockets and reinforced belt loops round out the durable features. The versatile fit is somewhere between tailored and athletic and pairs as well with a sportcoat as a fleece pullover. We’ve been known to go right from one to the other in the same day and strongly encourage you to do the same.

    The Explorer Pant is designed in Minneapolis and made in the USA.

    Sizing & Care Information:

    We know how important it is to get the right fit, so we offer an expanded range of sizes. We have also included a detailed measurement chart below so you can be confident your Explorer Pant will fit as expected the first time you try them on. The best way to determine your Askov Finlayson size is to measure a pair of pants you already own and that fit you well, and then compare those measurements with the ones listed below.

    Unlike many other brands, Askov Finlayson pants are not vanity sized, so you will likely need to select a larger size than you’re used to. Expect the waistband to be slightly snug to start but be assured that our pants will relax slightly with wear and contour to your body over time. Our Explorer Pant is made of unwashed Japanese Cotton Canvas, which means your pant will relax slightly and become customized to your body over time, similar to raw denim. To maintain an ideal fit, we recommend machine washing your pants in cold water, then hanging them to dry.
