Discover the perfect fit

Our philosophy for perfect jeans is simple yet difficult to translate in English. In Dutch we say: “Een spijkerbroek moet goed zitten èn goed staan”. Literally translated: They need to sit well and stand well. The true meaning is that they need to look good and feel comfortable. 

SLIM  |  TAPERED SLIM  |  STRAIGHT  |  TAPEREDLOOSE

Once you’ve discovered the perfect fit for you, it is important to know that our five core fits will never change. The fabric, finishes and details may change, but the fit is something you need to be able to depend on. All you need to do is try them on and remember the name. With the exception of raw denim selvedge jeans, all Amsterdenim jeans have at least a hint of stretch in them. Even the REMBRANDT selvedge jeans and KLAAS loose fit jeans have one or two percent stretch for extra comfort.
