Dearborn Denim Is Saved, Offers Savings In Return

A few months ago I visited Dearborn Denim and bought three pairs of pants that so far have held up quite well. There was some concern at the time that Dearborn would face some genuinely negative consequences from Denim North America’s decision to terminate denim production. “DNA” is Dearborn’s source and with Cone Mills closing at the same time it looked like there would be no reasonable way to do a fabric-to-finish American-made set of jeans in the long run.

This morning I got an email from Dearborn stating that they have convinced DNA to continue the supply at a higher cost and minimum-volume requirement. They also gave me this discount code. You’ll save ten or twelve bucks when you use it… and I think that if five of you use the code then I get one free pair of pants. I tell you what, the chances to milk you rubes for sweet cash and prizes just never end, do they?

An alternative that uses Cone Mills Denim and doesn’t put one-fifth of a pair of pants into my crooked pockets: the Cone Stretch from Gustin, which is $81 plus shipping. Either way, I think you’ll be happy.

    Hocking denim is for rubes. Hocking electric cars is where it’s at. Now just use my code: SL537FX when you preorder your Teslanario Model sEx.

    Also… great set of jeans. I’m going to probably buy a set or two of their khaki colored ones.

    Now if they’d just ship the order I already placed over 2 weeks ago I could check the fit and hopefully order more…

    Thanks Jack, had been wanting to give them a try. 2x khakis ordered – in Relaxed, as I’m currently old and fat.

    I did not yet buy any but I was also looking at a 2x Khaki pair. Here I was thinking I was the only person who would rock khaki colored jeans instead of traditional blue.

      They’re almost good enough to pass for dress pants. Some business casual places will let you get away with them.

        That was actually the exact line of thinking I was taking with them as I usually sport Carhartt work pants and I have a vague feeling that I should be wearing something very slightly more formal. Jeans and button downs are worn by a majority of people 10+ years older than me here and since they’re the ones approving/denying my asks I figure I might as well blend in with them.

    This right here is where you get the chance to vote with your wallet.

    Pay more for well-made, local products. Don’t by crap. Here’s your chance.

    Best of luck to them.

    I’ve bought several pair of Buddy jeans, “https://www.buddysjeans.com/index.html”

    These are heavy denim, no spandex or polyester stuff. More western styled, but so far holds up nicely. Not sure where they source the denim, but sewed up in Hebron, Mississippi. They offer in-between sizes too, so if you’re a 37 you don’t need to agonize over a tight 36 or a loose 38.

    Ordered the Khaki color today in a size that fits my current bulk as I’m currently peak flabulous for my lifetime.

    Hmm noticed I only have a few pairs of Jeans without holes and was planning on ordering a couple new pairs anyway. These are cheaper than Lucky or David Bitton jeans I usually order from Amazon… Hopefully they get shipped in a reasonable amount of time.

    Their sizes are no lie which makes the waist I can fit into in other pants seem generous compared to Dearborn Denim’s waist. Just a forewarning in case you’re relying on looser fits/tolerances from other manufactures.

      Uh-oh… at least they are better in that respect than Gustin, which seems to “true size” an inch below the actual measurement.

        I’m considering it additional motivation to get into something resembling shape before the baby arrives as I figure now is the time to re-establish exercise and portion control.

        Does make me glad I haven’t ordered anything from Gustin as it would be a required return 😛
