Jeans have evolved a lot over the past century, but there was once a time when they were simply a wide-fitting, robust piece of workwear. We cherish the utilitarian roots of the five-pocket jean and this is evident in our Wide Leg Jeans. These jeans are a true wide fit with a full leg, high rise, and large leg opening. As a nod to early 20th century traditional waist overalls, we left the rear pocket rivets exposed and fitted a Japan-made two prong cinch to help them sit high on the waist. Just how they should. This edition of our Wide Leg Jean is made from solid black raw selvedge denim woven in Japan on vintage Toyoda looms. Weighing it at 14 oz, this is a perfect mid-weight fabric that feels substantial but not overbearing. We dyed the construction threads black to match this stealthy fabric and procured tonal Japanese herringbone twill for the pocket bags. Each pair of Dawson Wide Leg Jeans are handmade in our Brighton workshop using vintage sewing machines, and finished with a selvedge fly, Reece 101 button holes, and a hand-branded Dawson waist patch.
