Kruize takes a minimalistic approach to making jeans. All details are there for a reason, not for decoration. You could say that form follows function. He only uses one machine with a single-needle lockstitch, so there are no overlocked seams. All seams are either selvedge, hand felled or bound with cotton tape. The buttonholes are hand sewn. He believes the jeans should look as good on the inside as they do on the outside.
The denims used are the best selvedge denims from Japan. The denims are all sanforized, that is pre-shrunk, so there is a minimum of shrinkage. A selection of the fabric can be found here.
