    I love these comfortable, stylish and easy to wear trousers. They are also wonderful to wash etc., I have bought two pairs so that I always have a pair available when I want to feel smartly casual.

    These jeans are fantastic. No spandex, no lycra, no polyester just pure cool comfort great fitting cotton jeans. These jeans look fabulous on and would flatter any figure. My friends all wanted to know where they could buy them. You have made me a happy camper.

    Best fitting denim explorer pant - 4/2/2014
    By: from Montreal, Quebec Canada

    I like pants that fit at the waist, fall evenly and look neat and well tailored. Hipsters and low rise pants are not the most attractive looking apparel for a mature women's body. If one wants to tuck in a blouse or wear a fitted top on the outside, I find anything but a pant with a waist looks sloppy. This, of course, is my opinion.

Vintage Denim

The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim

Vintage Denim from OrvisFew 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.
