This is the perfect modern classic menswear Jean, designed for medium weight denims (8 to 12 oz) but equally rugged in narrow or baby-wale corduroy, twill, heavy washed linen or moleskin. Straight-cut 5-pocket Jeans are engineered with a slightly relaxed fit. Jeans have a back yoke, back patch pockets, and front curved pockets with a coin pocket on the right. Waistband features belt carriers; you can choose from the classic button fly, or a more modern zipper fly. Old-school rivets and/or contrast top-stitching are optional, but-of course-highly recommended.
Inspired by American icons like Paul Newman, Elvis Presley, Jack Kerouac and Steve McQueen, these super-cool Jeans will be perfect for everyday; equally at home for roping a steer or changing the oil on your truck; dining in a 5-star restaurant, or relaxing on the weekend.
