Dearborn Denim started in 2016 manufacturing jeans in Chicago using American made denim. In 2017 both DenimNorth America and Cone Denim announced the closure of standard denim weaving at their USA based facilities. Dearborn Denim was able to source specially made runs at DNA through 2018. However, at the end of 2018 it was decided that these production runs were not practical for either organization. Since then we have been sourcing our denim from Cone Mill’s internationally renowned plant inParas, MX.
Our size calculator estimates the size and length based on height and weight. It is not 100%accurate but is usually a decent recommendation.
Example: Are you a muscular individual? Our calculator would recommend a size too large in the waist. If you noticed a drastic difference between our recommendation is looking a bit off, go with your usual size.
* Pro Tip: Check for a button "Size Guide" — found on most product pages above the size selection.
All of our jeans are preshrunk, if they feel loose do not wash them in an attempt to shrink them! Email us for an exchange!
Always wash jeans in cold water.
Hot water opens up the fibers in your denim, where color can be more easily washed away. Cold water helps the fibers stay closed, keeping the dye inside. Washing in cold water can extend the life of all your clothes—not just your jeans.
Dark indigo washed denims can sometimes rub off on skin, furniture, other clothes, etc... this issue is commonly referred to a "crocking".
Couple suggestions for avoiding color transfer:
1) A cold water wash with no other clothing with the denim turned inside out. 2) Adding 1 cup of vinegar to the cold water wash or cold water soak, if that is preferred. * This step can also be applied to black denim that may have a lingering sulphur smell.
