About this project

Our Story

Guys should not have to be uncomfortable to look good. PERIOD.  

So why is it that anytime you try on a better-looking fit, you feel like you've been given a wedgie or are going to burst through the seams?  Slimbs was born out of this frustration.  

We set out to create the perfect tailored fit (NOT a skinny fit); a fit that isn't too baggy but isn't too tight.  A fit that has room for a man's....parts.  A fit that any guy of any shape or size can wear with confidence and comfort.

After two years of working relentlessly with fashion students and industry experts, we've finally perfected the Slimbs fit.  No longer will a guy have to squeeze into a pair of jeans to turn heads.  With Slimbs, a guy can be comfortable AND look good.

Our Vision

Our vision is to change the slim fit experience forever.  And we're not just talking about jeans.  With your support, we plan to apply the Slimbs fit to shirts, chinos, suits, blazers...you name it.  Imagine a brand aimed at providing the best fitting, highest quality clothing at an affordable price, a brand that won't settle for anything but that absolute best.  That's what we envision for Slimbs, a brand for the people.

We put an end to constraining pants once and for all by introducing the “Slimbs Difference”...

1) The Slimbs Fit - We obsessed over every single measurement in our jeans to have a tailored fit without sacrificing comfort.  When we say obsessed, we mean OBSESSED.  We went through countless iterations, over the course of two years to perfect the Slimbs fit.  We also include a small amount of stretch in our light-weight denim that prevents Slimbs from feeling constrained in any way.

2) Highest Quality - We use the highest quality denim and craftsmanship in the world.  Our denim is imported directly from Japan and is crafted right here in the USA.

3) Repair Service - You really hate it when your favorite pair of jeans rip at the crotch (we know, we did our own market surveying and research).  We are offering a complimentary repair if you experience a tear in the crotch or knees.

4) Incredible Value - Dealing directly with you allows us to cut out the middle man.  Jeans of this quality typically cost hundreds of dollars, we're able to offer Slimbs to you at just $89 (Early Bird pricing).

Slimbs are available in three different styles: Selvage, Studio Blue, and Downtown Dark.

Sizes

All three Slimbs styles are available in waist sizes between 29-36.  Waist sizes 29-33 have an inseam length of 34" and waist sizes 34-36 have an inseam length of 36”. 

Choosing Your Size

Slimbs fit true to size.  We recommend you order the same dimensions as your favorite pants/jeans.  We will send out more details to help you choose your sizing as we get closer to the end of the campaign.  Backers will receive an email to select your style and waist size after our campaign ends.

We're currently able to offer Slimbs with our custom buttons.

STRETCH GOAL: When we reach $20K of funding, we will be able to make Slimbs with custom rivets and a back pocket metal plate!

Ever get a split in the crotch of those new designer jeans you paid way too much for?  We understand your frustration, and we’re so confident in the quality of Slimbs that we’re offering a complimentary repair if you experience a tear in the crotch or knees.  Just send them back to us and we’ll repair them.

If you have any questions about our repair service, please reach out, we welcome your questions.

Why We Need You:

Our goal is to change the slim fit experience forever, your funding will help make that dream a reality!  Our $10K goal will make our first production run.  Additional funding would allow us to release several awesome stretch goals we have planned, build up Slimbs inventory, and offer exchanges/returns services!

Who is Slimbs?

I'm Patrick, the one you saw in our video.  After creating Slimbs, I set out to surround myself with a team of people who share the same passion as I do for comfortable fashion. Our team is comprised of individuals who have experience working on all ends of the spectrum, from two person start ups to big four accounting firms. I know this is the perfect group to execute on the Slimbs vision.

For our repairs, we’ve partnered with Denim Therapy, an awesome group of denim repair experts, who can make damaged Slimbs like new. See what they can do at denimtherapy.com.

Please reach out me at patrick@slimbsbrand.com with any questions or suggestions. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenges we face involve the manufacturing process and timing.

The manufacturing includes cutting, washing, and sewing the denim. We teamed with one of the most prominent L.A. shops to oversee this entire process. We've been working with them for over a year in creating our samples, styles, and patterns.

Another one of our biggest risks is timing delays. We put a lot of time planning ahead so our partners are prepared for production. When the kickstarter ends, this plan goes into execution. We expect to have all of our Slimbs shipped out within 12 weeks of the Kickstarter’s end, and we will work our asses off to make that happen.

Overall, our suppliers and manufacturers have been doing this for years and know how to deal with any and all issues. With their experience and our direct, established relationships, we’re confident in our ability as a team to ensure the entire process meets these set expectations.

FAQ

  • We will send out a survey at the end of the Kickstarter campaign to get this info from you.

  • Slimbs fit true to size; no vanity sizing. We recommend you order the same dimensions as your current favorite pants/jeans. We are also currently working on a sizing guide and will provide that with all the information you'll need to figure out your size as we get closer to the end of the campaign.

  • Yes, just add $20 for one pair, and $5 for each additional pair. In some cases, we reserve the right to charge more if shipping costs are higher. Don’t forget to consider any import fees or duties you may have to pay.

    Last updated:
  • We don’t offer Slimbs for women, but some women like our smaller sizes. So feel free to roll the dice!

    Last updated:
  • We cannot offer exchanges at the moment. Since we’re crowdfunding, each pair of Slimbs is made specifically for each backer. But, if our Kickstarter campaign is successful enough to make Slimbs a reality, this will all change...the better we do, the more we can offer to you!

  • Absolutely, we already have ideas in mind...but we don’t want to spoil the surprise.
