Skinny Luke

Luke is the youngest brother in the family. Furthermore, he’s on the cusp of adulthood, but he’s still a kid at heart. Additionally, he’s thin through the hips and thighs, but he’s getting stronger with each passing year. His style has never been rigid. Furthermore, his look changes slightly with each year, adapting to the latest fashions, but he never throws his old clothes away. Instead, he simply wears them a little differently, pairing them with new trendy pieces.

That makes Luke perfect for those who are looking for a thoroughly modern fit complete with high waist and tight fit. Additionally, because the fit is designed to hug the thighs and calves, tapering right to the ankle, it’s best for those who are on the slender side. Furthermore, if comfort is important to you, stick to the lighter weights. The Skinny Luke looks its best in our stretch denim.

Also, if you’ve found that your jeans tend to gap in your lumbar region, the Skinny Luke will suit you right down to the ground. Furthermore, the waist is tilted slightly, rising a little higher in the back than in the front. This ensures that, whether you’re sitting or standing, your waist will sit right where it should.

Slim Darryl

Darryl is the most popular member of the family. Furthermore, he seems to fit in no matter where he is, moving effortlessly between professional and social settings without ever seeming out of place. Additionally, he’s been working as a graphic designer in the big city, but he’s always got time for family. He’s only a phone call away—and he always answers the call.

His style tends more towards comfort than his younger brother Skinny Luke. Additionally, he’s not on the cutting edge of fashion, but he knows that his look is never out of style. Furthermore, he’s comfortable without being too loose, casual without being sloppy. He’s versatile and always at home in his clothes.

The Slim Darryl has a medium rise—not too light, and not too high. Furthermore, there’s a little more room through the hips, but it’s still slim in the top block. The thigh fits snugly, but the taper is subtler, leaving a little more room through the calf.

Tapered Jeremy

Jeremy is the oldest brother in the family. He might not be as popular as Darryl, but he’s always the life of the party when the family gets together. Additionally, Jeremy might not ride his skateboard as much as he used to, but he can still hold his own on the half pipe. Furthermore, he’s got a family now, and his lifestyle is more sedate than it used to be, but he still knows how to cut loose.

Jeremy is a software developer, and the dress code at the office allows him perfect freedom to choose a style that works for him. Additionally, he still loves his hoodies and sneakers, but he’s also perfectly comfortable in wool cardigans and even the occasional blazer. Furthermore, he used to wear his jeans slung low on his waist, but now he prefers a medium rise that sits comfortably right where it should.

Therefore, Jeremy works well with heavier denims than with lighter ones, but, thanks to its generous taper, it can be difficult to get in and out of in super heavyweights. Additionally, it’s the perfect fit if you want plenty of room through the thigh and top block but a more fashionable cut below the knees. Furthermore, if you want a BOOTCUT fit, all you need to do, is to change the leg opening to your preferred bootcut width.

Loose Clark

Clark is the rowdy cousin. He’s the athlete in the family. Furthermore, he never turned pro, but he was a stand-out star on the varsity team. Additionally, he still plays hockey in the winter and soccer in the summer, and he’s got legs like tree trunks. The kids take turns trying to knock him off his feet, but he’s rooted to the ground.

Because of his ample thighs, Clark has always had to settle for baggy, shapeless clothes. However, recently, he’s found the perfect fit—a pair that gives him the freedom to move without hiding his athletic figure. Additionally, his jeans are practically his uniform. He’s got four pairs (heavy for the colder months and lighter for the warmer ones). Furthermore, now that he’s found the perfect fit, he never wears anything else.

The Loose Clark has a shaped yoke that provides an almost-tailored fit for larger men with power in their legs. Furthermore, the thigh is wide enough to fit bodybuilders who never skip legs day, and there’s a pronounced taper towards the ankle. This fit is perfect for the man who has all but given up on finding the perfect-fitting pair.

Classic Fit

The Classic Fit is the father of our family. Additionally, he cares deeply about history and legacy. Furthermore, the walls of his study are lined with old family photographs, and, when the whiskey has been flowing, he’ll tell stories for hours—stories about the old world and the new. Moreover, he knows how to spin a great yarn.

The father of the family has always been a stylish man. Furthermore, many of his favorite pieces (his well-worn flannel and his tattered Storm Rider) have been with him for decades, but, like him, they’re classics that never go out of style. Additionally, he may be going gray, but he’s a true-blue classic—the glue that holds the family fast.

The Classic Fit is built to last, so this is the fit we recommend if you’re considering any of our denims north of 18 oz. Furthermore, With a high waist, a generous thigh, and a slight taper with a levelled foot opening, the fit is the best way to make heavy selvedge comfortable for most body types. Additionally, pair it with a mid-weight Type III denim jacket and a pair of boots and you’ll be ready for anything. Moreover, for a more youthful look, try it with a plain tee and a pair of white sneakers.

Relaxed Ralph

Firstly, Ralph is the uncle who dresses up as Santa Claus every year at Christmas. Furthermore, he is a fixture at the family table, and his belly laughs bring a smile to everybody’s face. Additionally, he’s the biggest member of the family, but he carries himself well. He’s as strong as Paul Bunyan, and his hugs are legendary. He’s got a heart as big as Texas.

Secondly, for Ralph, easy breezy comfort is key. Additionally, he’s the oldest of the three brothers, and he drives a train for a living. Furthermore, his clothes suit the role. He gravitates towards vintage workwear styles, and he always wipes his brow with a bandana he keeps tucked in his back pocket.

Lastly, the Relaxed Ralph is perfect for larger men or for those who are drawn to more vintage workwear styles. Furthermore, it pairs perfectly with a Type II denim jacket, and it looks best with a bold rolled cuff over a pair of black engineer boots. To elaborate, Ralph is casual and airy. Moreover, Ralph has a higher, tilted waist. Additionally, he has a loose thigh width, slightly tapered towards the foot opening.
