When the call of gold lured adventurers to California, they weren’t the only ones seeking their fortune. They were followed by resourceful tradesmen. They sold tarpaulins and tents made of heavy cotton fabric. But because there was not a great demand, they started cutting sturdy trousers out of the wear-resistant material. Nobody had any idea then that a legend was born.
These original jeans were not blue – but rugged shades of brown.
Miners who dripped with sweat while digging in the claims chose brown-beige stripes that didn’t show the dug-up soil or mud and clay. Made of tightly woven, robust cotton and waist high.
Each pair a one of a kind.
The colour differences, irregularities and quality of the yarn add to the natural beauty of the hand-woven fabric. The typical dyeing process and finish are responsible for the used look with characteristic stripes and shading which become more emphasised the more these trousers are worn.
Wear the unbelievably comfortable and robust original jeans authentic with cowboy boots.
Or with a shirt and tie as a smart casual outfit. Instead of the usual belt loops they have the characteristic buttons – two in front and one on the high waistband in the back – so you can attach proper braces. The adjustable clip at the back ensures a perfect fit. A practical back pocket and typical jeans pockets in front.
These trousers are not hemmed so you can shorten them to the length you need. 100% cotton. Colour: Brown. Machine wash.
