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.
I had to send these two pair back, one had two blue lines on the right thigh and both were tighter than normal in the calves. I have over a dozen pair of Alexanders and have had this happen twice. By the time I was going to return the 2 out of 12 that didn't fit, I was past the 14 day return period so I just ended up keeping them but can't wear them. Seems some fit better than others. Also some are longer than others and I and my son are both 6'4" or taller. Waist is always consistent.
Great all around! So comfortable...
Very happy with the color of these! And I have relatively large quads that keep me out of some of the slimmer cuts. These fit really well.
