OUR FIT MENTOR
In 2008, Chris Ellsberg, a master pattern maker with 60 years of experience, walked into our workshop and changed the game. She had heard we were making jeans with old-school methods and wanted to be a part of it. Back then, we didn’t have money to pay ourselves, much less Chris. But she signed on anyway because the work meant more to her than the money. Chris has taught us loads about the art of making jeans that flatter the lines of the body.
WE SIGN EVERY PAIR
When we started, we made every pair ourselves and signed each one. For us, it was just what you did when you made something and you were proud of it. Today, when one of our jeansmiths has reached a point where they’re as good or better than we are, we have a little ceremony and we give them a sharpie so they can start signing their work. Look for the signature on the inside front pocket.
Great fit: comfortable to wear.
This Jean started it all for me. For years I've just been wearing Denizen Athletic stretch jeans to fit my larger thighs and glutes but still wanted to get something that was higher quality. Little did I know about this awesome company that was only an hour away from me. After digging and digging I decided to start out my custom denim adventure with these and I've never had a pair of jeans so comfortable. And knowing they are all made right here in NC is a huge plus.
They are billed as a “relaxed fit” and that’s what they are. A bit roomy, in fact; but very well made and comfortable. I’m 6’1”, 190lbs, 34” waist. I think I would order the “Jones” fit next time.
