The perfect pair of jeans. If you’re a man of thicker stature, finding a pair of jeans that fits well can be nearly impossible, especially off the rack. Most jeans are made with a specific body style in mind, so if your proportions are unique (if you have linebacker thighs like me, for example), you can’t always wear the styles you like. It’s a pain.
Enter INDi. Here’s a company that understands that no two bodies are the same and puts you in charge of creating a custom pair of jeans that fits you and only you. Whether you’re short, round, skinny, tall, or uniquely proportioned, INDi has a style that doesn’t just look good on you, but fits you the way jeans are supposed to.
Their website makes it simple for you to find and create a pair that you’ll love. How dedicated are they to offering jeans for every body style? The gent you see in this article is a model from INDi and is featured on the site, which is something you never see on mainstream apparel websites.
Choose the style of jean you like (or if you can’t decide, browse their Style Gallery for inspiration), and start customizing. I chose the Potrero Classic Straight 5 Pocket Jean, myself. Once you’ve chosen the style you like, you can pick the fabric/finish, stitching, fly, pocket shape, and more.
The look of your new jeans is taken care of, but what about the fit? INDi gets in-depth in order to create the perfect pair of jeans by asking you for information on your shape. You can supply information on the shape of your seat and your thighs – even your age and ethnicity – optionally, of course. When it comes to measurements, you’ll give them your height, weight, waist size, inseam, and shoe size using a slider system. The system can fit a 7’5, 350 lb man with a 46 waist, and a 40 inseam, so you’ll most likely be able to get a pair of jeans that fit.
Once you get through the customization process, you’re done. Review your handiwork, pay for your jeans, and they’re submitted to INDi’s data center, where the magic happens. What magic, you ask? We’ll let them explain it:
[quote]In our data center your fit profile is sent through our neural network where we use our extensive data bank of thousands of body scans to calculate your key body proportions. From there, INDi systems plug your clothing style choices and calculated body proportions into what we call our sizing algorithm (think geometry, statistics, and software engineering), and voila, your custom, one-of-a-kind pattern is born. Your unique jean pattern is then digitally sent to our manufacturing facility for cutting, sewing, washing, and shipping. This all takes less than 5 minutes.[/quote]
Ah, technology! And this is how you can get jeans that look great and fit you perfectly. Once your order is finished, they save your unique pattern for life, so you can easily re-order whenever you want to. INDi jeans start at $175.
