How to measure like a Grand Master

1, Waist

What size am I? Simple. Just lay your old favourite jeans down flat and measure straight across the back waistband. Write the measurement down. See photo.

2, Inside Leg

Measure from the bottom of the hem (the bottom of the leg) and up to the crutch. That will give you the inside leg measurement. See photo for help.

3, Front rise

It might help to look at the photos. But with your jeans flat, measure from overlapping seams in the crutch, to the top of the front waistband. Pretty simple.

4, Hem

With the leg laid flat, measure from one side to the other across the front of the leg. Simple. Again, the photo might help you with this.

What is Selvedge Denim?

Selvedge denim is the traditional way of making denim. Up until 1950’s all denim was made this way. Woven on old shuttle looms. Typically one yard wide. Denim produced on shuttle looms are called “self-edge” hence the name “Selvedge”.

Selvedge typically has a tighter, denser weave. Due to the self-edge outseam which has a clean finish so it will not unravel. This means it takes twice as much denim to cut a pair of selvedge so will cost a good deal more than mass-produced denim.

Japan is revered as the world’s leaders in Selvedge. And Kuroki is considered one of Japan’s truly iconic mills. In 1965 it switched from vat dyed to rope dyed selvedge and from that day it earned a reputation for artisanal denim.

In order to make a great pair of jeans, you have to start with great ingredients. Kuroki is one of the best mills in the world. We are proud to work with them. Selvedge should be viewed as investment into quality. And, will overtime, get better with age.

The Grand Masters of denim

Malcolm Gladwell wrote it takes 10,000 hours to become a Grand Master in chess. A Grand Master is someone who is capable of playing at the highest international level. In our town, there are people who have spent 20,000 hours, 30,000 hours, and in some cases, 40,000 hours making jeans. Their hands and eyes have been trained in the essence of making great jeans. They are the Grand Masters of denim.

You see, we had Britain’s biggest jeans factory on our doorstep. It employed 400 people out of a town of 4,000 people. And it made 35,000 pairs of jeans each week for 3-4 decades. That’s a lot of jeans. And we all know what practice makes.

In Cardigan, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t know how to make jeans. If you go to the coffee shop, they used to make jeans. If you go the pub, they used to make jeans. If you learn how to drive, the driving instructor used to make jeans.

Yes, this town knows how to make great jeans.
