    These look pretty sweet.

    Clothes hanger loops is a pretty clever idea. Is that original, or has it been done before?

    how are these vs crate routes? Slimmer?
    They'll get measurements out eventually but Chad liked the fit of these so much he retired the Routes he used to wear daily.

    Rag&Bone does them but this pair is a culmination of the best details jeans have to offer.

    jeeez

    there is part of me that does want to drop $200 on a single garment

    and another part which could not refuse something described as dollar for dollar the "finest jean on the market" with only 100 made

    It's a slim straight that should fit most. I can't promise the world. Chad and I are only human.

    The patch is badass but the leather guy is doing his stuff so chad couldn't snag a pic.

    I am very proud of this jean and so is Chad. For the die hard it must be made in Japan this jean isn't for you. It's made in the USA !!! No japanese shuttle loom will replicate this denim. The denim has a beautiful unique look with special characteristics that only a vintage american loom can produce.

    there is 108 jeans total. I hope you guys like. I left out two things that I will do for the Spring Wolf vs Goat collection.

    Best,
    Mauro

    PS- the pics are for artistical purposes that jean looks much different and I promise you will have a shitload of fun breaking these motherfuckers in!

    A tailored belt loop is a more expensive more secure way to sew beltloops. IMOP I think ALL premium jeans following a certain genre should have them.
    APC and KMW have them. The belt loop os sewn on the top of the waist band on the jean and then tucked under the waistband.
    I will have more pics coming soon.


    acutally it is tappered but it's not a skinny jean. I need my boys like JQBOMB to rock these!

    The rivets and shanks are all black and they fade bronze ( just like the denim fades from black to blue and if you wear them long enough to white). The company is the same company crates uses.
    The thread is 100% cotton.

    Surprisingly, BR does it on their shorts. Its pretty handy considering I don't have a ton of clip hangers.

    I'm SOOO tempted to post the pic of him working over the grill with the little piggy flashlight. I may be an asshole but he's actually a cool guy so I'll resist.
