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.
Fit snug but great quality
Bought the tan color at a retailer in downtown St Petersburg (Sartorial). They're great jeans - living in Florida, I need the light weight fabric. This is my second pair from them. They fit quite snug compared to other 32" waist pants. I'm in the process of losing about 5 pounds so I'm confident they'll fit a little better in a few weeks, but if I were not slimming down, I'd definitely have had to go with 33" waist.
The parts are are made with great attention to detail and care in construction. The material and fit are precisely as described.
I really liked the look of the pants. When I saw the sale I decided to jump on them. Unfortunately, they are way too small. Due to the no returns policy I'm having them altered. I took a gamble and lost but hopefully the altered versions will fit better.
