"I first had the idea of this fit when I was exploring Japan 
and saw women farmers working the rice fields
– something drew me in about their pants.


High Rise, Wide leg. 
Easy to move in, but quite architectural too. 

So I spent the better part of last year
designing the Stokes, a women’s jean
That combined this kind of wide legged get-to-work functionality
with a stylish high-waisted fit.
I sent prototypes to various friends (artists/gardeners/artisan broom-makers, etc)
And they LOVED them.

We put them into production and I was jealous – so I designed a men’s version.
That pair was the first Rowan. 
We made a small initial run in our Cone Mills OG denim and 
another in a gorgeous Japanese canvas. 
Two of the first pairs were snatched up by our photographers, Jerry and Shay. The fit is spot-on for the kind of get-up-kneel-down movement of a photoshoot. 
They photographed each other in their Rowans.
The more I wear mine, the more I appreciate them.

When I do 1/1, I increasingly find myself using this pattern.”

This jean will stretch 1” with wear. If you start them comfortably snug (or ever-so-slightly uncomfortably snug), they will stretch out to be the next size up + a perfect fit.
