11.11 is an exceptional label, with an ethos that strongly aligns with the S&S call to own fewer, better things — producing slow-fashion garments deliberately and sustainably across a network of local artisans and craftspeople throughout India. Everything they make is truly unique, with an undeniably natural and "human" element, from their patchwork and kantha embroidery, to the irregular nature of their low-tension handwoven textiles, to the tie-dye and natural indigo finishes, all of which will patina beautifully over time.
The Type 1 Pant are stylistically a blend between a classic officer chino and a pair of 5-pocket jeans, and functionally an elevated casual pant that feels like wearing pajamas made out of blankets. They're got a an easy tapered fit, neither slim nor wide, with an exceptional drape thanks to the weight of the fabric.
They're made from a thick and chunky cotton twill weave, so thick and loosely woven it feels more adjacent to knitwear than a woven fabric, with a plush and uneven face texture that combines the natural irregularities of the weave with a tonally varied "mid blue" indigo dye. It's a very soft fabric, with an airiness to the weave and a lot of pretty substantial neps and quirks throughout its face.
They're finished with a few of our favorite subtle 11.11 details - tiny contrast embroidery on the left pocket, a partially-lined interior, and a mock selvedge leg seams. According to 11.11, it takes 15 artisans approximately 56 hours to make one pair of these trousers, which is a nice thing to think about and appreciate every time you put them on.
