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.
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.
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.
Excellent pair of jeans - breaks the bank a little
These jeans are so comfortable and I can’t wait to fully break them in. They are going to be my everyday pair
Martin original raw jeans
I love the fit of the Martin’s and the 13 oz denim weight is perfect for year round wear in the South. The raw jeans break in and fit like a glove! Perfect jeans!!!
Excellent Quality and Fit
Recently bought 2 pairs of Jones (1 selvage raw and 1 washed) which I really love, but I only wear them with cowboy boots, which is almost never. SO, the Martins (which seem to fit everywhere exactly like the Jones except the Martins are tapered from the knee to the leg opening) are perfect for every day wear, and they look rad with my Red Wing Iron Ranger boots!
