Custom Selvedge Jeans

I've been fortunate that the last few customers I've had have not only been great to work with, but have had interesting ideas and special details that they wanted to see.

 This pair of jeans has a lot of special details. 

Fabric: a 14oz Japanese selvedge denim with an unusual variegated weft, a blend of indigo and white yarns.  Surprisingly smooth and soft on the inside.  The pocket bags are made from a an army surplus Marine Corps shelter half (a tent), dated 1951.  Back pockets are lined with the same.  Duck cloth interior waistband.

Details:  Single needle construction throughout.  French-felled yoke and riser seams.  Encased seam for the inseam - it's a little bulkier than a typical hand-felled seam, but much stronger. 
Double selvedge fly pieces.  Watch pocket has been replaced with a small knife pocket.  Riveted side belt loops.  Fancy stitching on pockets.  15 hand-set copper rivets. 


  1. Please pardon my language, but holy fuck they're beautiful.

    I need to have a pair made by you. And as soon as I clear some funds (I've been investing quite heavily in my own business lately), I'll place an order

  2. Thanks Simon, much appreciated! Yeah, so far these are the most interesting jeans I've ever had the pleasure of making. Just let me know when you're ready to order.

  3. The jeans look really good, the whole look is very stylish. I am impressed with the hubby who is so handy with rivets. You do really know how to sew well. Thanks for blogging. Www.Denimio.Com
