In the spirit of classic jeans, our designers constructed this style in America using completely raw Japanese denim that, when washed, shrinks to your size. Sizing is difficult, so pay attention: All pairs have a 37" inseam (which is why cuffs were so common in the 1950s). If you DO NOT plan on washing your jeans, select your true waist size. If you DO plan on washing them and are between 28"and 33", then size up 2" (i.e., if you are 28", order a 30") and if you are 34" to 36", size up 3". If in doubt, ask a Very Personal Stylist for help.
