This is the perfect modern classic menswear Jean, designed for medium weight denims (8 to 12 oz) but equally rugged in narrow or baby-wale corduroy, twill, heavy washed linen or moleskin.
Straight-cut 5-pocket Jeans are engineered with a slightly relaxed fit. Jeans have a back yoke, back patch pockets, and front curved pockets with a coin pocket on the right. Waistband features belt carriers; you can choose from the classic button fly, or a more modern zipper fly. Old-school style rivets and/or contrast top-stitching are optional, but-of course-highly recommended.
Inspired by American icons like Paul Newman, Elvis Presley, Jack Kerouac and Steve McQueen, these super-cool Jeans will be perfect for everyday; equally at home for roping a steer or changing the oil on your truck; dining in a 5-star restaurant, or relaxing on the weekend.
All sizes need around 2 5/8 yards / 2.40m fabric, plus a scrap of lining or light cotton for the pocket bags, about 15” x 36” or 38cm x 90cm. You’ll also need 1 X 5/8” or 1.5cm jeans tack button for the waistband.
If you want to make your jeans with a zipper fly, you’ll need a 7” or 17.5cm long jeans zipper.
If you want to make your jeans with a button fly, you’ll need 4 X ½” or 1.25cm jeans tack buttons.
Don’t forget rivets, plus self-colored or contrast topstitching thread if you wish!
All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.

I started the muslin last night for my husband's first pair of homemade jeans. He is very hard to fit; classic beer belly, little butt. I put the fronts, and backs (with yoke attached)together and had him try them on. Wow!!! I can't wait to put the rest of the muslin together to make sure the fit is perfect before cutting my denim. These jeans are going to be so awesome on him!!! No more poopy diaber butt look that store bought jeans have on heavier men... I will probably be buying another pattern just to have an uncut version. Too lazy to trace...

All I can say is " Yea"....both myhusband and all 3 teenage boys wear a 30 waist and when I showed them this pattern they got excited. They all know I'll be making lots of jeans for christmas. Thanks you for finally coming out with this pattern. Hopefully you have more mens patterns coming soon....hint, hint!!!!!

I'm setting up my payment for the pre-order. Given that all of your pattern instructions have been well-written AND you will be up-grading sizes, I look forward to making this pattern. Cordially, Nehmah/Emily

I want my men's jean pattern (sounding like the old promo for MTV. My husband hired a lady to make him a pair of jeans to go with his jean jacket. He wanted the jacket long to the floor. We couldn't find a pattern so she cut a pair of his old pants up to make a pattern. They were a good pair of pants that had to be destroyed.

Can you add some tips on how to adjust the pattern for mens fitting issues, like bellys???
Looking forward to the pattern

In Australia it is hard to find jeans for the long-legged below 32" waist. My husband is a 31".
Good luck with the range - I am sure a lot of women will use the patterns for themselves. I know men's jeans are a better fit for me than women's jeans and I am an hourglass shape - go figure!

Need 29 30 31 your leaving out a large #of customers. Have taken apart levis for years, have worn mens pants my whole life. Girls and womens never fit as well (and growing up chasing cattle in central Washington they where not an opinion ) please if at all possible add smaller sizes. Thank you

As a guy, who sews, thanks for doing this pattern. I just pre-ordered it. But, I'm a 32" waist. It's a popular size. Please, please include 32" in your pattern. I hope mens' patterns takes off for you. There's not a lot of patterns to choose from for us. But, I think it's a growing trend.
