The 22oz. selvedge denim from the famous Nihon Menpu mill in Japan is the heaviest denim we've ever released, making these the most durable jeans in our lineup.

This fabric is woven with a lower tension weave which helps shorten the break in time. We've paired this denim with an extra thick gold thread and solid copper hardware which will develop an amazing patina right along with the fabric. We chose an intricately textured 12oz. sashiko fabric for the pocket bags and full back pocket liner. Our signature right rear utility pocket is the perfect place to clip your pen or knife without sacrificing full access to the pocket or scratching your wallet or phone.

Heavily inspired by vintage workwear of the 1940's and 1950's, our Work Pants feature double front panels (that's 44oz of denim!) for extra durability while working and 9 pockets throughout to carry all your gear. The fit is what you'd expect from a true work garment: extra room in the hips and legs for maximal movement.

Designed in collaboration between Dave at Rugged Workwear and Skinner American Goods. Every garment is designed, cut, and sewn by our hands at the Skinner American Goods workshop using vintage industrial sewing machines we've rescued from shuttered factories.
