In mourning -
By: Nokie from Quincy Il
I am in mourning that you are discontinuing these pants. I have them in every color and multiples of some. I wear them for casual or dress. There is no pant on the market to compare. Please continue them. Nokie
Great Find -
By: anotherpickylady from KY
Finally a pair of pants that sits at waist, has plenty of rise for squatting, maneuvering, and good flattering drape on leg. Hem nice and wide and easily alterable if needed. Material perfect weight for early summer. Just good all over!
Nice cropped jeans -
By: cottager from Northern Michigan
These jeans sit at the waist which I like. They have a cotton draw string which I plan to remove since there are belt loops.

This is the second pair of these crop pants I've ordered. They fit great and I like that they are wide legged and below the calf. Very comfortable and the materials is soft, soft.

These denim pants are not jeans, more comfortable, more wearable, more of a fashion. I love them and wear them whenever they aren't in the wash.

Fabric was heavier than I expected and pants were longer. I will keep them because they fit well.
The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim
Few fabrics can boast the tradition and the colorful history that denim claims. From gold miner’s staple to the darling of high fashion, this down-to-earth indigo twill has worked its way into our hearts and into our closets. Our signature version, Orvis Vintage Denim is a traditional mid-weight denim made of pure cotton.
The Rugged Outdoor Fabric of Choice for Centuries
No other fabric is as quintessentially American as denim is. Used for the sails on Christopher Columbus’s ships, it first arrived on our shores in 1492, but the rugged textile had already been known in Europe for centuries. From the original serge de Nîmes, denim had been manufactured in France since 300 A.D. ad the outdoor fabric of choice for workers and farmers throughout Northern Europe.
Orvis Vintage Denim: The Toughness of Original Denim, but Prewashed for Softness
This sturdy cotton fabric derives its toughness from the weave — twill is the strongest of all of the fabric weaves, with threads woven in a tight diagonal pattern for increased strength. This diagonal pattern, or twill line, makes the fabric very durable and prevents it from tearing or ripping easily. The steeper the twill line, the higher quality the fabric; this is because the steeper weaves have more yarns per inch. Woven in this strong pattern, our 8 oz. Vintage Denim is prewashed for softness and will only get better with age.
Great for Travel
Orvis Vintage Denim is ideal for travel. Our sturdy, easy-care skirts, pants, and dresses are as stylish as they are comfortable, resist wrinkles, and the mid-weight fabric is suitable for year-round wear. Because our Vintage Denim is so versatile, practical, and popular, we offer a wide variety of styles for women in traditional denim blue, plus a range of wardrobe-expanding colors.
