Men's Custom Jeans Draft

Project Description

What are you most proud of? These jeans fit me well. I wear them a lot. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have a good 30 hours plus to complete this project.

What you will need

  • Heavy weight denim (12.5 oz to 15.5 that I pre-shrunk for this particular pair)
  • one 17mm jeans button
  • four 14mm jeans buttons for the fly
  • rivets
  • #30 jeans thread and regular thread in the bobbin to match the topstitching.

Thank you Ms. BB!
chris.ericson asked:
Can you tell us more about the denim you used?
Sartorialist answered:
This particular denim was purchased years ago in Vancouver BC at a place called Dress Sew. It is not a selvage denim, but it is wearing exceptionally well. It is super heavy, probably 15.5 oz denim.
Scheri Manson asked:
Wow now that is a pair of jeans that in no way looks home made. Thank you for all the helpful information. I will be off now to see your blog.
Sartorialist answered:
Thanks Scheri! If you need me to clarify any steps feel free to ask.
