Imogene + Willie – Initial Fit


imogene_willie_raw_denim_portland (2)

I picked up this pair of Imogene + Willie jeans last night from Jarom at Reveille. I chose them for their near-perfect fit, and the great  aesthetic of the husband/wife duo who make them in Nashville, but I’m starting to love them for all the details I’m now noticing. I love the subtle green bar tacks, and the lack of a branding patch is a plus; the only maker’s mark is an orange X on the right seam. Also, there aren’t any arcuates on the back pockets so the overall look of this jean is minimal and modest.


It snowed at the vineyard today so we decided to do some pictures outside. The belt is Tanner Goods, the chain goes to my pocket watch, and the parka is a Penfield from Mike at the Woodlands.


I’m looking forward to more honeycomb fading behind the knees than I experienced with my last pair of jeans, which weren’t as slim. That last pair is in for some repairs. They underwent some staining and wear from sorting grapes, tending to burn piles, and kneeling on the pavement during a few outdoor shoots. They’ve been retired to my ‘weekend jean’, and I’ll post some pictures of them as soon as I get them back.
