Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the name Askov Finlayson come from?

Our name comes from two neighboring towns in Northern Minnesota. Askov and Finlayson share a highway exit that Andrew and Eric passed countless times growing up on the way to and from their family cabin, one of their favorite places on earth. On the way up, the sign reads Finlayson Askov. And on the way down, it reads Askov Finlayson. It’s fair, and that’s the best part.

The building is also home to The Bachelor Farmer, a Nordic restaurant, and Marvel Bar, a basement cocktail bar.

How do your Askov Finlayson pants run?

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 Vermilion 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.


If you are having difficulty selecting a size or are between sizes, we’d be glad to answer any questions you might have. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance at
