    Adapted from type 122 Pleat Back Jeans, these Pleat Back Trousers are constructed without back pockets or a back yoke - the seat is shaped by two 'English' pleats, facing towards the middle, and adding roominess for free movement without the structure of seams.The diagonal side pockets will curve and stretch with wear, and the six belt loops are fully lined. The pleats give the 122 trousers a cleaner look and feel than Tender jeans, while also harking back subtly to vintage formal trousers, often made without back pockets to give a cleaner line under a coat tail. Trousers are sewn with ecru 100% cotton thread and fastened with black melamine Savile Row tailor's fly buttons.

    Casement cloth is a simple plain weave fabric traditionally used in curtains, behind a more decorative fabric.This mid-weight cloth is specially woven with a heavier cotton warp and weft, and is woven fairly loose and sewn loomstate. It is shrunk during dyeing, tightening up the fabric and pulling it into a dense, sturdy substance. Herdwick Stripe and Check Cotton Casements have individual ends (warp yarns) and picks (weft yarns) of natural undyed grey Herdwick wool from sheep raised in the UK. These yarns are fed in to the loom manually during weaving, forming a bold stripe. As the wool yarn shows dyes less clearly than the cotton ground, dyed garments retain the speckled character of the Herdwick wool.

    Khaki entered the English language via Hindi, during the British occupation of India.The color is achieved by mixing fermented indigo and turmeric.

    Tender’s designer William Kroll puts a lot of care into their research, design, manufacture, and wear. Just as a gardener tends to a vegetable patch, or a shepherd is the tender to a flock of sheep, Tender has the hope that it's customers will live with their products, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell. The British-made clothes and accessories are manufactured in small factories, ateliers, and homes around the country, exploring new approaches to traditional weaving, making, tanning, and dyeing.
