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.
Best jeans period
These jeans fit perfectly. This was my second pair of Martins and I just bought them so I'll have a clean pair for work and my first pair can be a comfy pair for being around my little kids. The Canons I bought are for work and replace a pair of Jones which were my, if memory serves, third pair in a row. I've only bought one other brand of jeans in the last ten years or so and that's because they were also made out of the same denim.
