New Name: Farmer Industry jeans

Farmer Industry specializes in deadstock denim and re-using discarded materials to make jeans that are environmentally-friendly and decidedly unique. They suggest that you wear their jeans for at least 6 months without washing in order to break them in to their fullest for a pair that fits your body and no one else's.

The "Boy" fit in grey, $119 (buy here)

A Dapper exclusive! We loved the Boy fit — a classic cut straight leg with a mid-rise front and back — and asked what washes were available. To our surprise, the folks at Farmer were willing to produce a run in a super soft and smooth fabric. It may feel like it's got stretch in there, but these are 100% pure cotton. White stitching throughout for a subtle finish.

The "Glory" in raw blue, $119 (buy here)

A slim straight leg for guys who want a good pair of everyday jeans, the Glory fit is similar to the Boy, with a slimmer cut through the thigh down the leg. Done in a classic raw blue, the Glory features two color contrast stitching on the pocket.

All Farmer Industry jeans have logo embroidery along the back waist with an embroidered rat celebrating the year of the rat, according to the Chinese zodiac.

Although these jeans are not made using selvedge denim, all inseams are finished with purple and red thread.
