Not a detail was missed, down to the trims. I selected brass buttons and copper rivet inspired by the portholes and lamps in my sailboat home, which will arrive shiny but patina beautifully. The zipper is also brass and copper on organic cotton... a common place plastic hides in jeans. The thread is undyed organic cotton in three weights.
These measurements are taken of the jeans laying flat. Got personal sizing q's? We're here to help. Jot us a note and send it to email@example.com.
Q: How is the crotch sewing? I am worried about it tearing there.
As strong as can be! These jeans are sewn with traditional denim stitching at a talented jeans-only shop in Los Angeles. We used undyed organic cotton tex 105 (aka super thick and strong) thread to sew traditional denim flat felled stitching so these should age like any pair of fine jeans.
Q: I am in between sizes. Which size should I get?
A: In general, most people will be shopping primarily off their waist measurement for this style. If you're just ~0.5" above the waist measurement, I'd recommend sizing down. From ~0.5" above and up, I'd probably size up. Example: My waist measures 30.5" and I wear the size 30 comfortably.
That said, some people will still find it preferable to size down if they like a really snug fit.
One major learning I've had since starting a clothing company is that most people can wear two sizes of most garments. It comes down to a style, and sometimes comfort.
Q: What does the fabric feel like?
A: Supple and utilitarian in a creamy, durable 16 ounce fabric. It's technically a drill, which is a traditional denim fabric.
It's very soft to the hand. Ours in particular is organically grown cotton that's color is totally unaltered color from the time it was a plant which is very rare these days. Durable and essential in our closet.
If you want to feel it, you can get our fabric swatch kit before purchasing.
