looked pretty interesting to me, so I ordered a pair - more as it unfolds...

the copy on the site is at once generic and bombastic (usual fare) but the jeans look good, even from the inside. also like how you can order different types of stitches from different machines on the hem. look forward to lotsa pics foxy!

I like the obsession with Singer machines trying to avoid Union Special altogether...

With the custom pair you can specify more machines for separate seams and operations.

I went with a standard pair in 14oz for the trial - let's see if there is any communication and pictures during the actual production period.

Definitely look like nice jeans.  Also very interested to see how they age.  The price point for the semi-bespoke does feel a bit high considering you're really only picking whether you want a buckle back, hidden rivets, and a selvage coin pocket.

re: coin pocket, his explanation and comparo pics for the "inazuma crease" on non-selvedge coin pocket is interesting. it does seem to happen as he describes it on the coin pocket on my mf cali.

@foxy agree. the singer obsession is a nice point of difference.

I've followed the Instagram account for awhile now, some nice photos on their of the Singer machines.
Interested to hear your thoughts on the jeans Foxy, the denim looks pretty nice.

(Pictures where taken in the evening under artificial light using a mobile phone camera.)

They came in their denim bag...



Selvedge denim, no less!




Pretty straight cut.



Pretty nice denim...



...and a nice leather patch, too.



Plain Selvedge...



...raw, starched denim.
