Raleigh Denim Workshop knows what they’re doing. Started by a creative, handy couple from Raleigh, North Carolina, the brand takes pride in the rich history of American textiles and craftsmanship that use to define the industry. In fact, they hunt for and use these old sewing and textile machines in their work. Each and every jeansmith is trained in the art of jeanmaking, from start to finish, and every pair of jeans is made with the care and intention it deserves.
Our personal pick for a pair of Raleigh Denim pants are the Grahams, in Carbon Canvas or Selvedge Raw. The Graham pants come in a slim-straight fit, with a little extra room in the waistband, seat, and thigh, but with a tapered leg – good for athletic and muscular builds. The canvas version are made with a lightweight, 100% cotton canvas for a rugged look and lightweight feel, while the Selvedge Raw is woven from their “ORIGINAL denim”, a 13 oz.100% cotton weave made exclusively for Raleigh Denim by Cone Mills White Oak. They come in both zip and button fly, with traditional 5-pocket design, with half-lined rear pockets, and Raleigh Denim’s signature red stitched hem. The raw version will shrink up to 1” when washed or soaked.
If you need a slimmer – or more relaxed fit – Raleigh Denim also makes pants in the Martin Thin Taper fit, Jones Thin Fit, and Alexander work fit. With raw denim, stretch denim, canvas, and even chambray options, here’s a fit and style for everyone, and you can feel good about buying from this brand; they know what they’re doing, and you’re getting a handcrafted pair of jeans made with love, that you’ll be wearing everyday for a long, long time. And if you act quickly, you can pick up a pair on sale from Huckberry right now.
