  • NOTE
  • SIZE & FIT

The E8 is the most smart looking pair of jeans in our repertoire, and works equally well for dressed up and casual occasions. Premium engineered detailing and smooth Raw indigo finish for a smart, yet interesting appearance. Heavier weight and rigid at the start, but softening nicely over time and fading into a lovely deep blue.

Higher rise, sits just above the hip bone

Slim in the thigh and calf, but not super skinny (there’s no elastane here)

Narrow opening works well with trainers and boots

A great cut for slimmer physiques (less muscled thighs)

Works just as nicely with a tucked in shirt and blazer, as a t-shirt and workwear jacket

Wil is wearing a size 30 in our E8 jean. He is 168cm tall (5'6") and weight 65kg (143lbs). In comparison, he takes a size 29 in our E5.

Fits true to size. Take your normal size.

Waist & Hip Stretching – Though pre-shrunk, raw denim stretches up to 2.5cm / 1" in the waist and hip over 30 wears. You may consider sizing down one size as a result.

Hemming – Our jeans are manufactured at 36" and 34" lengths. As a result, we offer free hemming. Once shortened below 34", your jeans cannot be returned or exchanged. You may want to try the fit first, and hem them second.

Inseam Shrinkage – Though pre-shrunk, our jeans lose 2.5cm/1" in the length on the first wash. We therefore add 2.5cm /1" to whatever length you request.

Denim Softening – Raw denim will feel rigid when first worn but will relax and soften over time. The denim will mould to your own body, fitting better with each wear.
