After years of worshipping denim, dutil. has finally created its own jean. 2010 marks the launch of both a men’s slim-straight leg and a women’s skinny jean which are shown here on our models. dutil. sources the denim for both the men’s and women’s jean from Cone Denim Mills in North Carolina; one of the oldest operating mills in the world (circa 1891)! The jeans are constructed entirely in Vernon, California, making this jean all-North American in order to keep with dutil.’s desire to adhere to America’s long-term and committed relationship with premium denim.
The men’s jean, deemed the “Quintessential Slim-Straight”, flatters everyone with its slim, but not too slim leg, in a beautifully woven and raw 13.75oz denim. The jean is well-suited to taller guys as it is equipped with a 35” inseam. However, for average-height and shorter guys, the red-line selvedge is best shown off with a slick cuff or sloppy roll, depending on your own personal style. Make sure you buy them snug though, as our raw denim is prone to stretch about a full size with wear. Men’s sizing starts at 23” and goes up to 40” which accommodates a very wide range of body types.
As with any other raw jean, we recommend that you wear it for 6 months to a year prior to washing in order to really allow the fabric and indigo to form to your lifestyle. When it is finally time to wash the jean, we recommend a cold water rinse with the jean inside-out and hanging them out to dry. Should you need hemming prior to washing, allow for an inch of vertical shrinkage so you don’t end up with flood-pants, unless that’s your kind of thing of course! Furthermore, the jean is available with (or without) a shiny sterling silver “halo” which proudly displays your eyewear when not in-use. Genius! The women’s jean, also constructed as meticulously as the men’s, is rinsed for softness and contains 5% Polyester and 1% spandex to allow for a women’s natural curves. Also, the jean boasts a contoured waistband that has a higher rise in the back than the front in order to prevent gaping at the waistband and to help avoid displaying your undies when you sit down. Since the women’s jean is rinsed, it won’t stretch more than ½ a size with wear, but we still recommend purchasing the jean fairly tight so that your body has a chance to work the fabric into your own unique shape. The sizing for our women’s jean starts at 22” for you skinny-minnies and goes up to 33”. Washing instructions are the same as all premium denim: cold-water rinse, inside-out, hang-to-dry and only when absolutely necessary; do this and dramatically increase the lifespan of your precious denim duds. The men’s dutil. jean retails for $258.00 CAD without the sterling silver ring and $298.00 CAD with the ring. The women’s dutil. jean retails for $238.00 CAD (models wear own shirts, shoes and accessories)
