About

Made In Trust is a declaration of love to honest, quality clothing.

We make superior jeans fairly and sustainably.

We focus on finest fabrics and puristic design.

Our jeans are a total package for modern traditionalists.

 

finest fabrics.

 Handpicked quality fabrics always constitute the solid foundation of our jeans and define Made In Trust elementary. For the first production run we use Candiani Raw Selvedge Denim. Better denim fabrics than most premium denim brands used for their jeans.

puristic, timeless design.

We believe in sophisticated purism. Instead of chasing the fleeting trends of fashion we focus on timeless products. Our products let the materials speak for themselves. You won't find any unnecessary complications or flashy logos. Our motto: #ignoretrends #dresstimeless

without the luxury markup.

We use premium denim fabrics and work closely together with well-experienced denim craftsmen. However, unlike traditional premium brands, we do not artificially inflate our prices. We sell our products for wholesale prices directly to you.

     

 the products. made to wear. made to last.

Inspired by purism, aesthetics and attraction of timeless design, we focus on the 3 essentiell quality characteristics of superior garments: finest fabrics, great fits and top-quality workmanship. The result: a valuable and adorable piece of raw denim which becomes more and more beautiful and gets its own character over time. A pair of jeans that defies fast-paced trends.

 the no. 1 regular tapered

The No.1 RT is a regular fit with normal waist that tapers slightly from the knee down to the hem. The fit is inspired by the iconic Levi's 501XX 1947, but with a narrower leg opening. One of the most versatile and popular fits ever. It's a timeless classic. 

After reviewing numerous fabrics, we choose a medium weight 16 oz. organic raw selvedge denim from the famous Candiani mill in Italy for our first production series. The perfect choice for our regular fit. Robust, stiff, durable and comfortable at the same time. The deep blue indigo color is a great qualification for impressive high contrast fadings.

     

 the no. 2 slim straight

The No.2 is a slim straight fit with normal rise. The jeans is straight from the hip to the thigh. Runs parallel from the knee to the bottom hem. The leg opening is narrow. Due to its slim but not too tight silhouette, it is the prefect choice for bootmaniacs and sneakerheads.

For our No.2 we choose a 13 oz. organic selvedge denim from Candiani, Italy, which we believe gives the jeans a perfect balance between ruggedness, durability and comfort. This fabric in vintage blue offers you a perfect canvas for best fading results and has high potential to become the new showpiece.

For all constructions we use core spun yarn for durability and longevity.

details.

Keep it simple and clean. Our jeans come with high quality details instead of flashy logos or fancy washings.

 the inspiration.

Wether young or old, blue collar worker or CEO, Steve Jobs or Steve McQueen, everybody is wearing jeans. This garment is simply the one for all. Jeans are versatile and universal, they are authentic, charismatic, and honest. For us it is the greatest garment of all time.

 the dilemma.

Today jeans are often no longer an honest product. Cheap fashion jeans for 19€, produced in inhumane conditions flood the market and make clothes a disposable item. Expensive designer jeans made in low-wage countries with extreme mark-ups are not really a conscionable alternative. And the jeans we love so dearly, high-end selvedge denim - made in Japan - are unaffordable to many of us denim lovers.

 the idea.

Instead of chasing the fleeting trends of fashion we focus on timeless design and to making superior denim in small batches affordable. We make sure that our jeans are produced fairly and sustainably in the EU without compromise. And with your support we can afford to do it without the luxury mark-up.

 why raw selvedge denim?

Our jeans are made of unwashed selvedge denim. Selvedge denim is the one and only true vintage denim produced on traditional shuttle looms. And that's why we call them True Blues. The fabric is so special because it cannot be produced in large quantities. Every yard is unique and a piece of wearable jeans history. When you roll up the hem, you'll see the self-finished edge which is the hallmark of a vintage fabric. We love raw denim for a lot of reasons, but one of the main reasons is the ability to fade and getting an individual and authentic character over time. For us there is no alternative.

 hi.

I'm Dirk and I'm a denim aficionado since I was 15. I've been working in the denim industry as a buyer and creative director for nearly 10 years. Collaborations with well-known denim brands from the USA and Europe (e.g. Rogue Territory, Edwin, Nudie Jeans) have given me an intimate look into this industry. Now I'm setting up MADE IN TRUST to bring my experience and knowledge into this project. It's time to change the way things are done and I want to do it together with you. It's not about reinventing garments. I'm a modern traditionalist and it's about making significant clothing valuable again.

Risks and challenges

The only real risk, if you want to call it that, is that our targeted delivery times cannot be met. The materials are on site and the preparations are done. Nevertheless there can always be something unforeseen that will tip the schedule and delay delivery. If this happens, we will inform you immediately and in as much detail as possible. We will never leave you in the dark. Transparency is a matter of heart for us.
