In contrast to the mass production that’s common in the fashion world, Paul Kruize likes to keep things simple and small. Just one man, one machine, making one pair of jeans at a time. Cut and sewn exclusively for you. “It’s all about quality in fabric, design, technique and – without a doubt – fit”.
More than anything the fit is what sets your bespoke jeans apart from the mass product. The pattern is hand drafted from your individual measurements and style choices. Hence the superior fit. All seams are closed and the buttonholes are hand sewn. The jeans are the quintessential 5 pocket jeans, but made with sartorial refinement and precision. The best of both worlds. Think James Dean at Savile Row.
Paul Kruize runs a one man operation. He is driven by the tailor’s attitude: mastering and personally executing the entire process from measuring to making. 2014 was the start for the tailor. He decided to offer something that, strangely enough, was hardly available: bespoke jeans, made to the clients individual measurements.
Jeans are a typical mass produced garment. Everybody’s favourite, but never with a perfect fit. Kruize developed a pattern system for bespoke selvedge jeans and has since made many clients all over the world their new favorite pair of jeans.
Next he started making shirts and worker jackets, following the same attitude, even with more sartorial hand sewing involved. Bespoke, minimalistic and detailed. For he believes that less is more and god is in the details.
“There isn’t a better artisan making jeans on the planet – on par with my favourite tailor (John Hitchcock) and shoemaker (Koji Suzuki) for marrying the holy trinity of fit, style and make”.
