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.
So this was my very FIRST pair of (anything) from Raleigh Denim... and WOW what an AMAZING pair of Jeans. I loved them so much the DAY I got them I got back online and got another pair. I couldn't justify paying over $200 for a pair of Jeans from a company I honestly knew nothing about or had never actually been to their store. But I'm so glad that I did. They are heads and shoulders above in quality from ANY pair of Jeans I have EVER gotten.
The single most comfortable, stylish pants I own (this is my fourth pair). Will never buy anything else and will bang my head through a wall if they go out of production. :)
Like my other jeans and pants from Raleigh Denim, these are perfect! The craftsman ship is nice and the fit is great.
