Jeans like they used to be. Cut in a straight leg with ultra high waist, the Akins Jeans are made in Blackburn, England, from a Japanese 100% organic cotton selvedge denim. The premium quality 13oz denim is woven specifically for us on traditional shuttle looms, and features our signature colours on the selvedge.

"5 Star - These are the best selvedge jeans I have ever bought.The quality of the denim is high,they are comfortable and the buttons are easy to undo and do up.They do shrink in length after the first wash but that's okay as I ordered the long length of 32". The price is amazing as selvedge jeans do usually command a very high price and I thought £150 was not bad for what they are, I wish I could afford 2 pairs." - Julie K.

Great jeans but come up small!

These are really nice jeans and are very comfortable once you’ve worn them in, which doesn’t take long at all!

I’m giving 4 stars because they do come up on the small side - I’m normally comfortably a size 10 and have jeans with waist 27” that fit well, yet I had to order the 30” in these. I couldn’t get the 28” all the way up! It might have something to do with the high waist.

I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of these.

Jeans

These jeans have a mom fit

They are quite stiff but I’m assuming they will wear in quite soft

Really good quality denim

Perfect

I have never felt so happy pulling on a pair of jeans.

This is the second pair of selvedge jeans I have owned, so I was ready for the journey. The first pair were from APC, and they did require a commitment - they start out hard - like wearing bark - and you have to endure them for a season while they soften and mould to your body. Then the suffering pays off and you end up with jeans for life that feel part of you. All good in these times - this is the way to go. So having followed the curve with that first pair, I pulled on these Finisterre jeans and hoped and it was an immediate emphatic Yes - the fit - so flattering - so beautifully cut. The hardness - reassuring there - so I know they will last but they are not like bark - there will be less suffering involved. I already love them.

Comfy fit and good value for the quality of the denim. I love finisterre jeans, good shapes and long lasting.
