Size Guide

True vintage style workwear jeans, based on an original pair of woodworker's jeans from the mid-thirties, with front patch pockets.

They have a classic wide-leg cut, made from 11oz, raw, selvedge denim with a red selvedge thread. These superb jeans are based on an original pair of 1930s jeans and have a relaxed, wide-leg cut. Ideal for a stylish, vintage look or comfortable, everyday wear.

As a general rule, we recommend you buy one size down from your actual waist measurement. Please see the size chart, below

  • Original 1930s pattern
  • 11oz, raw, selvedge denim
  • Red selvedge thread
  • Wide-leg fit.
  • Braces/Suspender buttons
  • Watch pocket
  • Front patch pockets

This denim is tough - our jeans still have no blow-outs after two years of constant wear - and the colour develops a beautiful fade.

Caring for your jeans

How you want your jeans to age is up to you, but we recommend not washing your jeans for the first six months, if ever, as you wear in your own creases and fade pattern. To keep them fresh and kill any bacteria, just put them in the freezer for a day.

Then, cold wash in water with a specialist, denim detergent to reveal a beautiful, aged look, or dry clean to keep them looking box fresh and preserve the strong, rich, indigo colour.

If you really want a distressed look, you could always emulate John Wayne*, who would buy new jeans before starting a new film, then tie them with a rope and throw them in a river for a few weeks to soften and fade them.

* We don't suggest emulating John Wayne's politics, mind you
