Modern jeans for the modern man
Our new jeans collection were introduced after one of our customers requested to have a pair of made to measure jeans made to fit him perfectly. He could never find jeans to fit him properly or that looked smart enough for that perfect balance of inbetween suit smart and the super casual, slghtly faded jeans and T-shirt combination. So, Larry decided to ask to have a pair of 'smart' jeans made just for him.
I’d never made a pair of made to measure jeans before. I told him that I’d never want to attempt to make anything if I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. He was pretty keen, which in turn made me curious as to how they would work. I agreed to trying a try a test pair and see where it went...
The first pair came out a peculiar shape and far too skinny, to which he responded: ‘These are a pair for 20 year old Larry. We need 60 year old Larry.’ I said- ‘You’ve got it!’. Back to the drawing board.
Four weeks later the next pair arrived and they were fantastic! He loved them. His response were that they were ''Superbly comfortable, flattering, lightweight and understated and for jeans, not ‘overly denim.’'' Not only that but people have commented on how nice they look since he’s been wearing them.
I was also so pleased with them that I gave them to Larry as a gift. Afterall, he inspired our new collection to form part of our new smart/casual offering. We now have three shades of denim; mid blue, dark blue and electric blue and are now our best selling piece of clothing.
You are a vital part of our innovations and we love hearing about what you’d love to wear. Who knows; your suggestion may become our new range!
Here’s a few places our customers have worn our jeans and what they had to say about them:
“I’ve just purchased my third and fourth pair of Alex’s fantastic lightweight jeans. My other two pairs have been such a constant companion this year it was time to mix it up a bit! I’ve worn these jeans in all settings from the office to gardening and even on the Orient Express (Pre lockdown one). They have been adaptable, exceptionally light and great to transition from day time to evening. I generally hate buying clothes and jeans in particular but now enjoy it.’’ John Dunn, MD Luker Rowe
''These jeans are extremely versatile - they look great with a t-shirt or formal shirt and the lighter flecks of blue running through the denim really ‘lifts’ them and makes them much more interesting than your average jeans. The fabric is extremely soft with just the right amount of stretch. I’ve worn them everywhere from the cocktail bar on the beach to (inadvertently) 1700m up a French mountain and they’ve always performed perfectly!'' Stuart Russell, Communications Director
I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to jeans; raw, Japanese Selvedge, keeping your jeans in the freezer. Guilty.Yet I needed a pair of jeans that looked stylish, with a slim, uncomplicated silhouette. The kind of jeans I could wear when out for drinks in a swanky cocktail bar, as well as in the day.I found what I was looking for with the San Francisco. The cut is superb, the fabric is a luxurious cut above the usual and the lack of any unneeded ornamentation appeals to the modernist in me.A must for any wardrobe, highly recommended.''
