Spring 2015 Style Guide
  • Washed Softcoat

    Washed Softcoat

    The trick to looking completely at ease while simultaneously sharp is having the right pieces.

  • Bayshore Quarter Zip Sweater

    Bayshore Quarter Zip Sweater

    So much of a sweater becoming your favorite is about time and place. My father had a Summer sweater that he kept at the Duxbury house where we vacationed every summer. He'd wear it to play golf and for evening walks on the beach, but it was the fishing and claming that lead to its demise. We recreated this classic in 11 exciting colors. Rib knitting at neck, cuffs and waistband to retain shape.

  • Poplin M2 Pant

    Poplin M2 Pant

    While 8.5-oz. cotton twill was considered the standard weight for World War II uniform fabric, it was almost replaced in the Pacific theater by a cotton poplin similar to what you see before you here. Stateside field testing in Florida proved it to be cooler and more comfortable in hot weather. Mercifully, the war ended before new uniforms could be produced. Less is truly more wherever staying cool is a way of life.

  • Surfside Poplin Short

    Surfside Poplin Short

    Let's get down to reality. You need a well-planned strategy to get you through the hottest days of summer. At only 3.2-oz, Surfside Poplin is the lightest weight cloth we have ever produced in a pant or short. Thin, soft and dry to the hand. The pockets are also cut from the same cloth. There's no beating summer heat, but we can sure try. Shorts inseam 9 3/4".

  • Putnam Plaids

    Putnam Plaids

    If you can relate to the concept of a shirt that has been washed and line dried in the sun about a dozen times, you'll get the point of our vintage washed shirts. Ranging from simple to more complex in pattern, each shirt is weathered in color and an overstatement in comfort. Pre-washed for softness and casual appearance. Wears great with khakis and jeans. Come Friday afternoon, throw one on and call it a weekend! Button-down collar. Single chest pocket.

  • Bass Belt

    Bass Belt

    Award winning artist and designer Taf Schaefer has hand sculpted buckles exclusively for Bills Khakis in her New England studio. Each buckle is hand cast in bronze using a centuries-old, lost wax process (cire perdue) and hand finished to an aged patina. The result is a remarkably fluid and spontaneous style with an eye toward detail and craftsmanship. 1 1/4" wide milled leather strap.

  • Selvedge Denim

    Selvedge Denim

    In the late 1800's, the looms were narrow, less than 3 feet wide, and the edges were finished off and color coded as a method of tagging and tracking lot numbers through the factory. This process was referred to as "Selvedge" and the machinery is still running today thanks to a lingering demand that still exist for an artisan's approach. At Bills Khakis, we're committed to bringing back quality in clothing that's been lost. Nowhere is it more evident than here. 13.5-oz. 100% cotton. Made in USA. Machine washable.

  • The Lewiston Boat Shoe

    The Lewiston Boat Shoe

    It stands to reason that a boat shoe make by hand, a short drive from the Atlantic Ocean, will handle a wet deck better than those made elsewhere. But what really sets our Lewiston Boat Shoe apart is how comfortably is performs on land, with hand sewn moccasin construction that conforms to your foot in a manner that makes owning a pair a personal experience. Crafted by Rancourt, a family- owned company in Maine, with genuine Horween "Chromexcel" tanned leather uppers, siphed rubber soles, rawhide laces, metal eyelets and more. Made in USA. Medium D width.

  • D-Ring Canvas Belt

    D-Ring Canvas Belt

    Tracing its roots to WWII, every U.S. military draftee was issued one web belt in either khaki or olive. And it was used. Used hard. In civilian life you are at liberty to choose more than one, in more than one color. Stainless steel D-ring.

    Seersucker Pant

    Few fabrics define their respective season so utterly that they come with their own set of rules. Seersucker's #1 Rule - Never before Memorial Day! If you live in New Orleans, consider yourself exempt. If you live in New York, you've probably broken more than one harmless rule in your day.

    You'll consider the need for our Flagstaff Jacket in terms of days, weeks, countries and climates. We teamed up with U.S. military supplier Cockpit U.S.A. to build this essential piece of travel gear. Part cotton, part linen, there's little reason to question its comfort and breathability.

  • Savanna Cloth

    Savanna Cloth

    Our 100% cotton Poplin has long been our most popular warm weather fabric at Bills Khakis. Many of you swear by it and we're not here to test your loyalties. BUT, if you are looking for the next generation of this summer staple, you have found it in Savanna Cloth. The main difference is the addition of 3% stretch, which raises the bar one peg in comfort and finish. We have also updated the styling ever so slightly with two rear double darts and 1/8th top off seam pocket. If we didn't make you privy to these details, you might not even notice. Give'em a test drive.

  • Vintage Twill M2 Pant

    Vintage Twill M2 Pant

    It can take months, sometimes years to break in a new pair of khakis to the point of perfection - super soft, floppy, but not frayed. And about as comfortable as any pair of khakis could ever be. This point in time is our goal when we produce every batch of Bills Khakis Vintage Twills. The secret is the right combination of fabric and wash formulation. The result is part art, but mostly science. They will be your old favorites from day one.

  • Loafer Moc

    Loafer Moc

    The problem with loafers is, they're not that comfortable. The problem with driving shoes is, they look like slippers (if you don’t work, at least look like you do!). So we put our heads together with Rancourt & Company, a family-owned shoe factory in Maine, to solve the problem. Our Bills Khakis loafer moc blends genuine American Bison leather and a flexible camp moc sole with several generations of hand-sewn craftsmanship. Nothing matches the natural fit and feel of a true hand-sewn shoe. Why shoes called “Loafers” shouldn’t be the most comfortable shoes you own we’ll never know. Now they can be.
