Tommy Fazio of GQ called this “the most well-crafted jean I’ve ever had on my body.”

The dream of creating the ideal pair of jeans was what got us going in the first place. Original Raws were the first jeans we made that felt like we achieved this. Featuring denim designed by Sarah and Victor and made exclusively for us at the now-shuttered Cone Mills White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC. We only have so much of this denim treasure left, so get it while you can.

  •  100% Cotton
  •  13 oz Cone Mills denim
  •  Button fly
  •  Half-lined back pockets
  •  Selvage detail at coin pocket + back belt loop

The Rowan has extra room in the seat and thigh, a straight leg and high rise.
Fits true to size. Take the next size down if you are in between sizes.
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.

I got two jeans in one

I read the reviews for this item and many reviews recommended sizing down so that it would stretch. I normally wear a 32 so I bought a 31 and when it came it was still too big. And then I know the style is supposed to be rolled up but these pants are so long I could cut the denim in half and make two jeans equal to my leg length. I suppose I should be happy I get more fabric for the price but I don’t think I can ever comfortably wear these. Plus these are final sale so I’m just stuck with them. Feels like a waste.

Not the Style I was Hoping For

I like the idea of a higher rise jean, but I was expecting more of an athletic fit. As someone with very large legs in proportion to my waist, this fit was comically baggy, which might be the desired look. I’d definitely like to see a fit with a moderately high rise (maybe 0.5-1” higher than the Alexander), some room in the seat/thigh but not overly baggy, and a slight taper from the knee down, to a a 14 or 15” leg opening. That all being said, if this overly baggy style is the intention, then it hits the mark!
