    nicely finished and in a soft but sturdy denim, these jeans filled the bill. I like the wide hem. At 23" the petite inseam could have been shorter for my height but i'm still liking the length. Perfect for winter in Kailua.

    Super comfortable - 9/20/2011

    I am tall (5'9"), and ordered these because they were ANKLE length. I prefer a length just a little longer than cropped length. These fall just a couple inches above my ankle, which is perfect. The drawstring waist makes for a good fit - loose enough thru the hips but as tight or loose as I want in the waist. The chambray material is very soft and comfortable. I bought these to carry me from summer into fall.

    More than One - 9/12/2011

    I have two (2) pair of the jeans and love both of them. They wear well and are easy to wash and dry.

    Disappointed - 9/12/2011

    Wanted and needed the ANKLE length pants. I am not tall, but the pants were more capri length. Poor description. Wasted my time and postage. Will think twice before ordering again.

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.
