The E8 is a mid to high rise with a straight waistband, compared to the E5 they are slightly slimmer through the thigh. This cut still has a generous taper through the leg. 

This cut is suitable for those who want a slim fitting jean that offers some movement and comfort in the thigh.

Premium engineered detailing and cool black denim for a modern look.

We have applied a neutral enzyme to the wash utilising no stone plates to create a subtle "stone" wash finish.


  • Higher rise, sits just above the hip bone
  • Slim in the thigh and calf, but not super skinny
  • Narrow opening works well with trainers and boots
  • A great cut for slimmer physiques
  • Works just as nicely with a tucked in shirt and blazer, as a t-shirt and workwear chore jacket
  • Available for free denim repair in-house
  • 100% made on Blackhorse Lane, London

    Fits true to size. Take your normal size.

    • Waist & Hip Stretching – Though pre-shrunk, raw denim stretches up to 2.5cm / 1" in the waist and hip over 30 wears. You may consider sizing down one size as a result.
    • Hemming – We will add 1" to any inseam request/ custom or standard to allow for shrinkage after the first wash. e.g. a 34" inseam request will be finished to a 35".
    • Inseam Shrinkage – Though pre-shrunk, our jeans lose 2.5cm/1" in the length on the first wash. We therefore add 2.5cm /1" to whatever length you request.
    • Denim Softening – Raw denim will feel rigid when first worn but will relax and soften over time. The denim will mould to your own body, fitting better with each wear.

    See the Size Guide for more information.

    • Cold wash only, or the denim will shrink by 5%
    • Wash inside out with mild detergent or none at all
    • They are Sanforized so will shrink in the length up to 1″, but shouldn’t shrink in the width
    • Raw denim will give up to a 1 1/2″ in the waistband, so the fit should be snug (but not restrictive) to compensate
