We will do our best best follow your instructions, even if they don't make sense to us, so be sure that your measurements will work. There are no refunds. In many cases we will contact you to confirm special request.

Disclaimer: We do not take orders for jeans with extra wide flat-felled seams or multiple thread stitching construction, as seen in most True Religion or Buckle jeans.

    From the back of the closet to the front of the rotation

    Posted by Jordan on 3rd Aug 2018

    I had two pair of strait leg raw selvedge jeans (APC new standard and Williamsburg South 2nd St). Both are high quality but the straight leg made them a little dad(ish). I tapered the leg opening down from 16" to 15" and both pair look killer. Jeans size were 33 for the APC and 34x36 for the Williamsburg. I am tall so I used the highest crotch number (I think 13 or 13.5 inch), and the taper to 15" leg opening now wears like a levi 511 and a bononbos slim.
