How do they fit?
In keeping with the Tokyo fashion scene, Japants sport a slimmer fit. If you’re between sizes, select a size up. With wear they’ll stretch out, so don’t fret if they’re a bit tight at first.
What if my inseam is 30″ or 34″?
We’re a small business, so we offer only a couple of lengths right now. Fortunately, any tailor can hem our pants to a great fit.
How do I care for them?
Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle, dry on low heat.

Tokyo Style, Made in San Francisco
In early 2011, Betabrand began working with friend and designer Tomo Saito on a new line of pants. The big idea: take the convention of Western designs manufactured in Asia — and turn it on its head.
We took high-end Japanese fabrics and Tomo’s ingenious designs and turned them into trousers made in San Francisco. The result was Japants: hip Tokyo cargoes with an American fit.
The wonderful cotton twill we use to craft our Japants makes them a bit pricier than the average pair of Betabrand trousers, but we think
you’ll agree that the cut and quality are worth every cent.
