Product Info

Premium Japanese denim. Artisan wash process. Perfect custom fit.

Functional, comfortable, versatile, timeless. Jeans are a must for every guy’s wardrobe, and yet a pair that fits well is all too elusive. So we decided to change that—and bring you custom-fit jeans instead. This premium four-season denim has a natural feel, just a hint of stretch, and is woven and dyed in Japan. We cut and sew your custom pair, and then they undergo a full process of washing, bleaching, and sanding depending on the wash you’ve chosen, just as any luxury jeans would. This process ages the denim, creating natural-looking fading on the thighs and around the knees, hips, pockets, and seams. The result is a timeless and versatile pair of jeans that looks gently worn, fits your body perfectly, and will continue to soften over time. We think of these mid wash indigo jeans as the universal pair that goes with absolutely everything, from white tees and sneakers to sport coats and Chelsea boots.

Note that our custom jeans are available only in the 5-Pocket style. It’s the design Levi Strauss made ubiquitous, with practical, understated precision and durable construction. The two front hip pockets and coin pocket are reinforced by Italian Riri rivets, and the two rear pockets feature a classic angled shape. A rear yoke provides extra give.

As with our popular Washed Indigo shirts, the unique processes involved in producing our custom jeans requires an adjusted shipping schedule. Extended delivery dates will be reflected on product pages and in the cart.

The Iconic 5-Pocket Jean Design

In addition to having five pockets, our jeans have all the details that set classic 5-pocket jeans apart from other types of casual pants. A denim waistband closure, 5/16″ chainstitch hem, and high-quality Riri rivets, tack buttons, and zipper make a clean, unfussy impression and recognizably rugged look.

  • Fabric is heavy

    Tom in Hilton Head Island, SC

  • Would much prefer two offset belt loops in the back rather than a single center belt loop.

    Curt in Los Altos, CA

  • The denim is a little stiff, but seems to be breaking in nicely. I would definitely buy again.

    Paul in Akron, OH

  • Will be interested to see how quickly the denim loosens and becomes my favorite pair of weekend jeans

    Chris in Houston, TX

  • My favorite jeans, which is why I have several pair

    Julian in Sugar Land, TX

  • Not as fashionable as shirts

    Thomas in Sonoma, CA

  • Great.

    David in SHREVEPORT, LA

  • noce jeans

    Geoff in Dallas, TX

  • Good fabric. Need to replace the name label on the rear of jeans with leather tab/label.

    Andrew in Ellicottville, NY

  • Look great

    Jason in Washington Crossing, PA

  • Fabric is a bit heavy but nice quality

    Clifford in Waldwick, NJ

  • The idea of getting custom made jeans seemed crazy, but I'm going to have a hard time going back to off-the-shelf.

    William in Sammamish, WA

  • Very nice

    Alan in Toronto, ON

  • I may have ordered wrong. I needed a slimmer fit. I think you offered one but I was afraid it would be too tigh, so ordered regular straight leg fit.

    Gilbert in New York, NY

  • fabric quality and design are good.

    andrei in Seneca, SC

  • All good.

    John in Sudbury, Ontario

  • Quality and Design are all good.

    Alex in Ottawa, ON

  • Good

    Kelly in Jersey City, NJ

  • Great

    Jeremy in London, London

  • Second pair, and if I didn’t love them I would not have ordered second pair.

    Julian in Sugar Land, TX

  • Everything is good besides the quality of zipper and stitching around the zipper

    Erwin in Bloomington, IN

  • The style is great - simple and unpretentious. The fabric is neither light like a cheap or summer jean, nor stiff and heavy like a rigid jean. It's a perfect three season weight. I had mine cut in sort of a slim-straight with a narrower, but not tight, leg opening. This makes them the perfect all-purpose jeans. I can work off of that to make a tighter ankle or slimmer hips, etc. if I want something less adaptable. The zipper is a bit strange. I've never seen a chrome plated zipper on jeans before. It seems a little llightweight and the pull tab is dangly. It's almodt as if the zipper belongs on a light jacket.

    John in Phoenixville, PA

  • Top quality feel and construction

    Paul in Oxford, MD

  • Fabric is good but I'd like to see heavier weights in the future. Whiskering/abrasions are not that well done for the price - I think it would be nice to have the different washes without this. Zipper is a bit crap.

    Adam in Ivanhoe East, VIC

  • awesome product

    Everett in BOCA RATON, FL

  • Good fabric

    David in Bronx, NY

  • Excellent

    Allan in Wilmette, IL

  • High quality

    Julian in Sugar Land, TX

  • Seems to be great. We will see in a year!

    Kevin in Eagle, ID

  • The denim wasn't as stiff as I thought it may be however, overall an excellent pair of jeans and well worth the money. The only thing I'd change would be a button fly instead of zip.

    Andrew in Wellington, Wellington

  • Fabric, Quality and Design all seem good.

    Matt in Wellesley, MA

  • As expected

    MARK in New York, NY

  • Nice jean fabric

    Matthew in Cincinnati, OH

  • fabric and construction quality are great too

    Alex in Ottawa, ON

  • Good quality Denim, not too heavy, will see how it wears

    Nicholas in New York, NY

  • None


  • Fabric is good, but not quite as soft as I expected. The stitching on the inside seams is excellent, almost looks like selvedge.

    Noah in Portland, OR

  • The fabric was too stiff.

    Kvin in Katonah, NY

  • Great quality, very comfy

    jacques in st-lazare, QC

  • Nice stretchy material in a classic design


  • Awesome quality

    Anthony in Lolo, MT

  • fabric feels dense and rough. more like something you'd wear for outdoor work, rather than comfortable casual wear.

How do I request a remake or alteration for casual pants?

We’re happy to provide each customer up to two complimentary remakes to dial in their casual pants size. You can request your first remake directly from your order history. Click here for tips on how to make the most out of a casual pant remake.

Alternatively, customers can have their pants tailored by a local tailor (and be reimbursed up to $30/pant as store credit). This can be a good option for small or time sensitive adjustments. Click here for tips on how to handle local alterations.

What are the differences between the Casual Pant fit options?

For both Standard Sizes and Smart Sizes, customers choose a Fit, selecting between Extra Slim, Slim, Straight, Athletic, or Classic.

Click here for photos comparing the various Fit options.

Extra Slim Fit is a progression from our popular Slim Fit with narrower dimensions through the hips and legs with a smaller leg opening. This fit is great for thinner guys or guys who want a particularly slim fit with significant taper. Extra Slim Fit is not a skin-tight “skinny” fit, and will still be work appropriate for slimmer men in relaxed offices.

Slim Fit is our most-popular, office appropriate, slim-but-not-tight fit. It’s suggested for average size guys that want a clean, tailored look that will still drape from the thigh down. It’s significantly narrower than Classic fit through the hips and leg, and has a noticeable taper from thigh to leg opening, but is not as slim as Extra Slim.

Straight Fit is similar to our Slim fit in the hips and thighs, but with minimal taper from thigh to knee to leg opening. It has a wide leg opening that will easily fit over bulky boots, or cover more of the shoes.

Athletic Fit is roomier than Slim fit in the seat and thighs, but still tapered to the knee and leg opening. If you have particularly large hips or thighs, but still want a slim fit, this is a good choice for you.

Classic Fit is more relaxed than Slim Fit in the hips and thighs, with significantly less taper through the knee and leg opening. Great for guys who want a roomier fit with classic proportions and a wider leg opening that covers more of their shoe.

What’s the difference between 5-Pockets, Chinos, and Jogger style Casual Pants?

Chino Style Pants is a style of casual pant that typically features angled side pockets, subtle jetted or flap back pockets, and a hidden coin-pocket. Proper Cloth Chino style pants use horn, or faux horn buttons, and have a split center seam in the back. Chino pants can be made in a variety of fabrics, from the most classic cotton twill, to more modern performance fabrics.

5-Pocket Style Pants is another style of casual pant, with design details like we’ve come to expect in jeans. This includes the two curved pockets on the front, a visible small coin pocket on the right side, and two large patch pockets on the back. 5-Pocket pants typically use a metal tack button at the front, and have small metal rivets at the pocket corners. 5-Pocket pants can be made in a variety of fabrics, including washed denim for jeans, and other cotton or technical fabrics.

Jogger Style Pants are unique in that they feature a drawstring elastic waistband and an elastic cuff at the ankles. This gives them them a particularly casual look, similar to sweat pants, but when made with certain fabrics, they can still feel quite smart, but with a sporty flair.

While all styles of pants can be dressed up, Chinos are generally considered the most dressy, followed by 5-Pockets and then Joggers as the most casual option.

How are Proper Cloth Dress Pants different from Proper Cloth Chinos?

Dress Pants (also known as Trousers) are part of our Tailored Clothing line, and are typically made from a wool or wool blend fabric. Dress Pants feature a Bemberg lining inside that goes down to the knee, and a grosgrain reinforcement at the cuff. Dress Pants are made to have a crease that runs down the center front and back of the leg, for a slimming effect. Dress Pants require dry-cleaning.

Chinos can look similar to Dress Pant given they have similar style pockets. However, there are some fundamental differences. First of all, Chinos are typically made from cotton, or a cotton blend of fabric, they have no lining. Secondly, chinos don’t have any crease down the center of the pant legs. Overall, Chinos are more casual than dress pants. Conveniently, Casual Pants don’t need dry-cleaning, and can be washed at home in the washing machine.

Due to some manufacturing differences between the two products, you must have a different saved size to order Casual Pants than the one you use for Dress Pants.

Dress Pants typically take longer to be made and delivered than Casual Pants. Consult current delivery times here.

Can I convert a Chino style pant into a 5-Pocket style pant or vice-versa?

Yes, all of our Casual Pants have customizable designs, and can be switched between the Chino, 5-Pocket, and Jogger styles.

To modify a pants style, go to its product page and click on the “Customize” button. Then click on “Style” to expand this design option. Select the desired style you want and click Next. The image on the left will not update to show the new configuration, but your changes have been applied. Click Add to Cart to purchase the pants in the newly selected Style.
