Gurkha Trousers - Black Slubby Sateen
Kaptain Sunshine


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


Kaptain Sunshine is quite literally a fabric-first brand, having gotten their start as the in-house brand of a fabric mill. Their designer Shinsuke Kojima is able to lean on this to create fabrics that support his vision with unexpected volume and cuts applied to classic concepts.

These Gurkha Trousers are made from a sateen combining ultra-long staple cotton in the warp, with an uneven Zimbabwe cotton in the weft all in a high-density weave. This creates a fabric that is true to the military roots of the trouser. The luxurious hand and slubby texture are further drawn out in a special brushing and washing process.

Cut with a high rise, roomy legs, and a slight taper, Kaptain Sunshine's Gurkha Trousers will comfortably and flatteringly fit most body types. Unlike vintage Gurkha's, these play with volume and shape for a thoroughly modern fit without delving into the immediacy of fashion. 

True to size, with built in belt and side tab waist adjusters, so fit can be adjusted easily and dramatically. Wash cold, hang dry.
