While fabric shopping for a project in November 2013, a gentleman came up to me and let me know he'd like to purchase a pair of custom pants. He's a landscaper from Grounded Landscapes groundedlandscapes.com/ here in Portland and wanted a pair of Genes that would be suitable for work. After going over what wears out fast in his pants, we decided to add leather reinforcements around the front pockets, the knees and the back hem of the pant leg. He also wanted a slimmer cut then my original style and a button fly, which I don't do very often (or rather never)
100% cotton denim, top grain leather reinforcements and solid brass hardware.
