Product Description
To be, rather than to seem: It’s North Carolina’s state motto, and one adopted by local jeans maker Raleigh Denim. It stands for jeans made the old-school way—in small batches of about 300 pairs; slowly, with no automation, using hand-graded patterns and refurbished machinery from the glory days of denim in the Blue Ridge Mountains Read More

Truly a dynamic duo, Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko, have been making blue jeans for over a decade in America’s terra sagrada of indigo twill, North Carolina. What few people know is that self taught Victor and Sarah, not only design the jeans, but they actually build & rebuild their machinery, hand-grade + cut & sew their 5 pocket pants themselves. They are as deep as the craft comes. We turned to them for our latest denim collaboration.
Sarah and Victor, are self-taught jean-smiths and early on as they faced challenges they turned to the current & ex-factory workers in the surrounding counties in the hills of North Carolina and Kentucky to impart the expertise that they had learned from working in America’s glory days of denim factories. The machinery they have refurbished is rescued from these same denim workers and for some magical reason jeans built on machinery that last last as well.
The jeans are built in downtown Raleigh by Raleigh Denim’s 10 sewer workshop. Raleigh is one of only a handful in the US to run their own production. Their sewing and construction is tough to equal and super excited to offer this product to our community.
A couple things to mention for the big and tall - Raleigh does offer Sizes 35 + 40 and all their jeans are 35” inseams.

Don't buy anything made in this backward racist state. Or the south for that matter.

By that logic the rest of the world should boycott all US products if they disagree with Trump’s policies.

Yeah, we wouldn't want to pre-judge anyone, would we? Oh wait, I guess it's ok when you do it.

A little sizing suggestions? Before I was married, I always bought size 32” jeans, but for the past two years I’d had to buy 34” waist x 32” length jeans from Banana Republic. I saw someone suggest measuring the waist of your current jeans to see your size. Well, my wife is in theater and costumes, so I grabbed a tape measure: pants and my bare waist are about 38 real inches in circumference. I’m 6’1” tall. I’m sorry to ask the same question that everyone does (believe me, I read through a bunch of comments), but I didn’t see others post their actual waist inches and buying luxury-priced jeans sight-unseen (and I usually try on a few $40-$60 jeans before actually purchasing) makes me too nervous to jump.

The Glory Days of Denim in the Carolinas always used Japanese fabrics. I read it somewhere.

I’m a little confused; I thought part of the allure of Raleigh Denim was that the denim itself was milled in Raleigh as an entirely in-house operation. Has that changed? It says the denim here is from the Kiahara Mill in Fukuyama Japan.

The White Oak Cone Mills plant (in Greensboro) shut down late 2017 - Raleigh Denim apparently stocked up on the stuff and they should be producing White Oak denim jeans for the immediate future, but the supply they have is all that's left. Most of the jeans available on their website are constructed with White Oak denim. Their cheaper models like this one are now made with imported denim.

Has anyone reached out to see if Raleigh Denim would be willing to hem these??

Just received mine and I absolutely love the look of them, but they run much smaller than I expected. Bought a 32 based on the chart (and typically wear a 32 or 33" jean or tailored pant) but I probably need a 34. If anyone is interested in a 32 (34" waist on the chart), get in touch.

What is the waist measurement on the 32 pair that you received? Is it 34" (blue owl measuring style) or is the size chart inexact?

Sorry, I did not take a measurement of the jeans themselves when I had them in my possession. Drop customer service came through for me and took them back.

Can anyone comment on the sizing of these relative to N&F Weird Guy?

The Jones is a little tighter in the waist, similar in the thighs, and a slightly wider leg opening. I’m a 32 in Weird Guy and a 33 in Jones.
