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 love these.
I bought a pair, loved them so much that I then bought two more. I’m a rounder gentleman and the combination of the stretch with the quality and softness of the fabric make these ideal. The colors are a great change of pace from denim.
Best jeans in America
Unsurpassed quality and attention to detail! Raleigh Denim Workshop is THE best!
The best jeans I have ever owned. On my second pair. I have had the first pair for years and I still year them weekly. This is the best fitting pair of jeans I have ever owned, and they are so durable.
