Slim Tapered Raw Denim Jeans Made in USA - HOPE STREET

(11 reviews) Write a Review

Rigid slim tapered raw denim jeans

We started Williamsburg Garment Company at the end of 2011. However, our first American made jeans were produced in May 2013 and Hope Street was the first model. It was the first style to be produced in Cone White Oak denim and feature our U.S. flag inspired pocket bags.


Hope Street is a men’s slim tapered jean. It has the smallest leg opening and slimmest fit from the knees down. With a smaller lower leg than our most narrow fit, the men’s skinny South 4th Street, but the seat and thigh of Hope is closer to our slim Grand Street fit, with a larger waist opening, as Hope is straighter from the hips to the waist opening.

We describe it as a tweener jean, in terms of fit. Although we’d suggest going with the same size that you would normally wear in other Williamsburg styles, it’s conceivable that you can also go a size down because it has a larger waist opening. In the links below, see our style comparison charts for more info.

    A little tight in the calf area

    Overall probably the best pair of jeans I ever owned, just a little tight in the calf area but other than that, great!! I’ll try a different style next time.

    Best jeans I've ever owned

    I've been trying to get a solid pair of relatively inexpensive raw denim pants for awhile now, and had a few false starts and disappointing purchases. But these are completely awesome. The fit is perfect, the quality is top notch, and I can tell I'll be wearing these almost every day for years to come. Highly recommended.

    This is my second pair and I absolutely love these jeans. Takes a little bit to break them in but that's part of the fun. My advice: don't ever wash them.

    First Pair of Raw Denim -- I'm hooked!

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Oct 2016

    Got these in the mail earlier this week and after a few wears I can honestly say that as far as fit, color, texture, etc. these are the best pair of jeans I've ever owned. The length is great as I like to cuff my pants and while the waist is slightly large, when I do my first soak/wash they should be snug around but not constricting. Can't wait for more from WGC in the future!

    Best Pair of jeans i ever had

    Posted by AR Mously on 27th Jan 2015

    I found these pair once at a denim store and they had a good discount, so i got me a pair. After just one week it became my favorite pair of jeans, the fit is perfect, the color is great, the quality of the denim itself is really nice.

    My favorite thing about this pair is the fit, it has sort of a relaxed low waist and a tight (not skinny) leg as which works perfectly with my style.

    these were soo good that I had to buy my self another one just in case something happened with my current one, great deal.

    Best damn pants I've ever owned.

    I blew out two pairs of rather pricey Levi's in one year and decided enough is enough. I wear my jeans every single day. I do everything in them (YUP, EVEN THAT) and I need denim that keeps up. I had been eyeballing these for some time and, when my second pair of Levi's simply couldn't hang with the big boys anymore, I ordered a pair. They showed up in 48 hours and upon opening the package it was immediately obvious to me that these were not the jeans I, as a hoodwinked American consumer, was used to paying my hard earned money for. These were worth much more than I paid for them. $125 for a pair of USA made, high quality jeans that fit correctly and look incredible? Amazing. I'm a smaller guy and finding denim that fits without looking either like leggings or like I'm starring in a mid 90's hip hop video is nearly impossible. Tired of denim that can't keep up? Tired of pants made for nerds? Tired of paying $80 a pair for dogshit put together in some sweltering hellhole in the Pacific rim by near-slave-children who aren't getting paid a goddamn living wage? Then these are the jeans you've been looking for. Quit fucking around and buy them. You can tell a lot about a man by the denim he wears. What's yours say about you?
