Whether you call it wabi-sabi, patina, or just well worn, there’s a certain kind of beauty to a well loved pair of jeans. Like they’ve been around the block, and picked up some stories along the way. We’ve modeled these Patch Wash Selvedge Jeans off of a vintage pair that our design team stumbled across, and we think the results speak for themselves. With hand stitched repairs front and back as well our usual suite of flawless features (like vintage map print pocketing and custom YKK hardware), you’re getting a one of a kind, road-worn look with top tier craftsmanship, so they’ll last long enough for you to add some wear and tear of your own.


This 13-oz selvage denim hits that Goldilocks weight—light enough for year round wear, and burly enough to take a beating. As always, we’ve opted for 100% organic cotton; side-stepping harmful pesticides and obscene water waste while maintaining all those cherished features that have earned selvage denim its legendary reputation. Finished with a thorough wash for a soft, vintage feel from the very first wear.

This garment is made with Organic Cotton

Who doesn’t love cotton? It’s soft, versatile, and low-maintenance. Unfortunately, the conventionally grown stuff is absurdly wasteful and often relies on harmful chemicals. That’s why this product is built with organic cotton—all of the benefits, none of the BS.
