Sizing + Fit

We recommend wearing your jeans for a good while before the first wash for the most character & natural looking fades. When the time comes, soak in cold water with just a little mild detergent and hang to dry.  View our full washing recommendations here.


Raw selvage fabrics may bleed throughout the first few wears and dye transfer is to be expected.  This will reduce quickly over time and as your jeans break in.


If you have any questions, let us know.

Our jeans measure close to the actual label size, for most people, we recommend you order a SIZE UP (if you are unsure, this post will help). For an optimal long term fit, your jeans should be tight at first and difficult to button.  As they break in, they will loosen up quickly.  Raw denim can stretch up to an inch in the waist over time if stressed.
