My Dogwood Denim jeans are my go to casual Friday attire for the office this summer. I love the deep pockets and seeing the attention to detail and quality of every stitch. Alina is such a pro at what she does and a really fun and lovely human being.

What motivated you to invest in a custom pair of jeans?

I really value my jeans. I regularly wear jeans to work and they need to be both comfortable and professional. I was looking to invest in jeans that would last, as I am continually striving to improve the decisions I make with my wallet. I value how sustainable Dogwood Denim’s jeans are and that I can now buy less jeans... and pairs that won’t just collect dust in my closet!!

What did you enjoy the most about the made to measure process?

I really enjoyed picking out all the different elements of my jeans from the stitching to the leather belt patch. and I also enjoyed meeting Alina and going through the whole process of them “being brought to life”. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process; Alina is such a pro at what she does and a really fun and lovely human being.

How do your one-of-a-kind Dogwood Denim jeans fit into your wardrobe?

My Dogwood Denim jeans are my go to casual Friday attire for the office this summer and I plan on adding a second pair in a darker shade. Now that the pattern is made I can easily add to my wardrobe as needed ... one pair of jeans is not enough for me!

What do you love the most about them?

I love the deep pockets and seeing the attention to detail and quality of every stitch. The waist fits perfectly, and I mean perfectly, which is a big deal for me as I suffer from an inflammatory condition.  My butt looks pretty good in them too if I say so myself!

Why would you recommend investing in made-to-measure jeans?

If you’re looking to have a really great fitting pair of jeans of the highest quality possible that are also sustainably made... and enjoy the incredible process of having Alina customize every stitch of them to your personal taste, I highly recommend Dogwood Denim jeans.

In the long run, this process will save you money and frustration. As someone who is only 5 foot tall, I finally got a bootcut pair of jeans that fit perfectly around my hips and thighs. No more alterations!
