Fotos ECHT Pants
Our pants are developed by Peter and Jörg, they are hand-sown for you, with exceptional crafting.
For our jeans and pants, Jörg wanted the most sturdy cotton and we choose one of the last guild clothing fabric weaver in Germany for the fabric production. Peter specializes in custom-made pants - that he crafts in his shop in Bavaria, Germany. The 23oz per-square-yard 100% cotton is probably the most durable cotton fabric you will ever find. Do not mix up with denim, where decent quality lies around 14-18oz. Our heavy fabric, in the US called moleskin, is valued by German craftsmen since centuries as it weathers years of hard labor. For the Jeans we cut the fabric "selvage", so that the woven seam is visible inside the legs.
Jörg and Peter designed six models, all custom made according to your specifications:
Moleskin Jeans 23oz Moleskin Selvage, six pockets, reinforcements
Journeyman Pants 23oz Moleskin, many useful pockets
Journeyman ½ Shorts, ends right above knee
Wide Pants 23oz Moleskin, old-fashioned cut
Cargo ⅔ Shorts
under knee when flexed, many useful pockets
Office Pants 23oz Moleskin. Also for after work, a modest appearance
Details of the custom-made ECHT Journeyman Moleskin Jeans:
Journeyman front pockets, leather reinforcement of your material and color of choice, stitch color contrast optional. Six pockets, with cell phone pocket. We cut the fabric along the weaving edge - so that you can see the selvedge inside (lower left - in red).
All the above can be made for males and females, see here Janice with her Office Pants:
All our 23oz Moleskin pants come in various fabric colors, stitch colors and leather details - according to your selection:
Any detail of our pants can be custom made. E.g., two clients wanted to have different back pocket designs for their ECHT Jeans:
Peters guild clothing family business was founded in 1927, he is one of the last specialists in hand crafted work gear that specialize in traditional German guild clothing. For crafting with this dense fabric, Peter uses his traditional Pfaff leather sewing machines; for the leather reinforcements around the pockets a Duerkopp-Adler. To translate your measurements for the ECHT custom-made service, CAD software and a plotter help, that also guarantee reproducibility of individual custom work.
Here some details that characterize all of the ECHT Pants:
You will receive a certificate, hand-signed by the craftsman, and inside the pants you will find the edition number and, if you like, your initials.
From upper right: the pants come with many pocket options, which can be leather reinforced. In the crotch area we feature vent openings, that are covered against views with a flap in the inside. This flap cushions the crotch area and acts with the holes as an "air pump" for ventilation at every step movement. A nail magnet can be stitched under a leather patch.
From upper right: The legs can be measured to be folded up and the inside bottom seam can be leather reinforced. If you use them for work, a hammer loop can be practical. Optional small coin pocket.
From upper right: Optional hidden cell phone pocket, within the cargo pocket. Optional knee pads, sown formed to the knee.
From upper right: The inner fabric can be doubled over seating area, inner knee reinforcement, pockets are sown very sturdy, the fabric for the pockets is extremely durable.
