Frankie & Frankie

Since the release day of our now staple piece Frankie trousers, they were instantly one of the popular ones and still are. We are proud to say that all-time bestseller Frankie linen pants are the epitome of style and comfort and can match any look you want to go for. Seeing how much you loved our medium-weight trousers, we have added waffle, gingham, and heavy-weight linen options too. Some wonder – what is the difference?

To begin with, the general difference between the two main linens is that medium-weight linen is 200 g/m^2, and heavy-weight linen is 340 g/m^2. But the key is texture, how it feels along the skin, and how it falls on the body.

Heavy-weight linen has a woven and thick texture. So it is the ideal option that can work both during the colder and warmer seasons. Frankie trousers in heavy-weight are for the ones who love to wear linen all year round. Compared with the mid-weight option, heavy linen doesn’t fall as flowy as the mid-weight. In comparison, because of its thick texture, it falls on the body more like oversized jeans. So either you’re looking for something for the hot days, that easy breezy feeling along the skin. Or simply something that will suit your plans in all seasons. We’ve got you.

The colors of heavy linen differ slightly from the mid-weight linen. So, for example, if you have Frankie trousers in terracotta, heavy linen Frankie will not look the same. Because of its thick texture, heavy linen colors are a bit richer and slightly darker. But if you have any doubts about which fabric you would prefer, you can always get our fabric samples prior to the order and decide. But make sure to add in the note section when completing an order that you would like to receive heavy linen samples too.

The texture of waffle linen creates small pockets of air that allow for better air circulation and can help keep you cool. As well as it can absorb a significant amount of moisture while still feeling light and breathable. So that’s definitely a win-win during those hot summer days. Not to mention the smoothness of fabric to the touch. And the best part – it’s easy to take care of it. Waffle linen can be machine-washed and dried, and doesn’t typically require ironing. It weighs 260g/m^2. For Frankie’s we offer 6 waffle linen colors options.


Last but not least – Frankies featuring gingham linen. A checked fabric with a square-like pattern that can cheer your mood any time of the day. Playful and eye-catching, the fabric is soft and light on the body (200 g/m^2). Available in 5 color options – red, blue, green, yellow, and terracotta.

All linen fabrics are pre-washed and softened during the fabric manufacturing process. Keep in mind that linen fabrics have to be taken care of the same: washed in low-temperature water (30-40C) on a gentle cycle. Avoid tumble drying to prevent color fading. Use environment-friendly laundry detergent. Do not bleach. Take the clothes out while they are still damp and air-dry. To remove wrinkles, iron them inside out and set a low heat on the iron.
