Moleskin. From Italy.
Unbelievably soft and still extremely robust and durable, this strong material is made of pure cotton: Moleskin, the "English Leather," woven with strong warp yarns and high weft density. In numerous work stages the finished fabric is sanded and coarsened, so that it obtains the typical, inimitable softness and resistance unique to Moleskin.
Contonificio Bonomi, Lombardy.
At Bonomi in Gallarate, cotton weaver since 1860, these, and many more work steps, happen under one roof: the selection of the best raw cotton, the weaving and dyeing, and the finishing of the cotton material. Because of its high weft density, the Moleskin is manufactured on looms that run slower than normal. The result: a thickly woven cotton material that feels almost like velvet, while being, of course, much longer lasting.
From Hiltl. Chino without pleated waistband.
From the described Moleskin come classic men’s pants, with straight legs and lateral welt pockets. A watch pocket is positioned under the collar; the back pockets can be buttoned and closed with buttons made from a real horn.
Moleskin. Soft and robust.
Moleskin is a heavy cotton fabric woven with strong warp yarns and an extreme tightness of the weft yarns (of up to 400 threads per inch) in satin weave, then sanded and napped in several operations. We source it from Cotonificio Carlo Bonomi in Lombardy, cotton weavers since 1860, where all these steps and more take place under one roof: the selection of the best raw cotton, the weaving and dyeing - and the finishing of the cotton fabrics.
The moleskin, so that the machines can handle its high thread density at all, is made on looms that have to run slower than otherwise common today.
