We make these jeans in small runs and expect to sell every pair. A run might be as low as 40 and is rarely higher than 400. The leather patch on the back tells what number pair you have and how large the run size was.
FIT IS PART OF OUR CRAFT
There’s lots of reasons we’re good at fit. For one, we think about it a lot. Two, we’ve learned tons from master pattern maker, Chris Ellsberg and her 60+ years of experience. And three, we’re our own fit models. When we develop new designs, we wear them ourselves and we make refinement after refinement to make them fit better — from where they set across the hips to how they flatter (not flatten) your butt and so on.
SECRET HIP BONES
After you’ve worn your jeans a few months, they’re no longer two dimensional. They become shaped like your body. So, we thought we’d give them bones. Victor found a hip x-ray and started silk-screening bones on the inside of the front pockets — in the anatomically correct position next to your real hip bones.
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.
frustrated - it does not seem you make consistent fit
Great fit on the Jones. I purchased a 30 waist and it was snug at first but quickly adapted to my build. The denim is a great weave and attention to detail is fantastic
Better than expected - older guy giving raw a shot
So far, really liking the jeans. Lots of breaking in do to, but that’s part of the intrigue. When I first received them, I thought there was no way they would fit well, but they do stretch and mold to your body. Within 2 days they are near perfect. Considering other styles. Very well made and great details. Wish you could choose a length to customize the fit.
