Compare straight vs slim tapered jeans: South 2nd St. vs. Hope St.

Compare and review raw denim Williamsburg American made jeans, Slim Tapered vs. relaxed straight fit

Williamsburg Hope Street vs South 2nd Street fit


As a specialist of raw denim American made jeans, we offer 4 different fits for men. These are the two extremes in terms of leg openings.  The South 2nd Street is currently the largest fit in our collection and has the widest leg opening. Hope Street, although not our smallest fit, does have the smallest leg opening and largest waist opening of all Williamsburg jean fits. Hope is straighter from the hips to waist opening so it fits between sizes when compared to other fits.  If you have small legs, you can go down a size for a slimmer fit. If you are wider at the waistline, the jeans can be perfect for you. Those in between would require a belt.
