Finding Your Perfect Pair of Edwin Jeans

When shopping for denim online, it is often the case that we have the perfect fit in mind but struggle to match that image up with the one of the many jargonised fits we meet on the product page. Whether you prefer skinny, loose, traditional straight or tapered fits in your jeans, you can rest assured that Edwin has got you covered. A pioneering denim specialist since 1947, Edwin is responsible not only for bringing denim to Japan, but also for developing the world’s heaviest ringspun selvedge denim, being the first to offer a washed look denim, and the inventor of ‘stone washing’—now one of the most popular styles of denim. Edwin is today one of the few remaining authentic denim manufacturers, and the craftsmanship and quality of its fabrics and cuts marks it out as an industry leader in premium denim. If you are looking for a beautifully crafted, robust, perfectly fitting pair of jeans, Edwin is your go-to brand.

A classic from the Edwin archive unchanged for over 20 years, the Nashville is a timeless straight leg with a high rise. This pair of jeans was once an integral member of Edwin’s iconic Japanese collection, and was revitalised by the European team when it was discontinued 10 years ago.
