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.
These are the perfect pair of of jeans!
The are a amazing! Great workmanship, materials and attention to detail.
Crossover to male side
I am female and I ordered the men’s jean after finding the woman’s jean too tight. The size 28 was a little roomy but I like it that way. For reference, I am 5 foot tall and less than 100 pounds. I love the raw denim and the selvage and this may be my only made in USA pair of jeans. I did wash them and put in drier so they could be hemmed after maximum shrinkage.
I love the fit, quality and style of the Jean. I am very pleased with them.
