our more modern take on a mid-rise straight leg, with a roomy thigh and knee
Hank is a classic-fitting straight leg jean with more room in the thigh and knee area than Willie. It has a medium rise and cleaner, more modern fit than many of its traditional-fitting vintage predecessors. Perfect for someone with a more athletic build or the guy who just likes a relaxed fit in the leg, Hank has a welcome place in the imogene + willie line up. Leg opening in base size is 17 inches.
Up until now, your best friend was Willie or Barton. But now... you might just be best friends with Hank. This jean is lovingly named for our 4-year-old nephew Hank, also known as Cantankerous Hank.
Hank has a very unique personal style. He doesn't like blue jeans, or any other long pants for that matter. Long sleeve shirts get in his way, and so do shoe strings - he prefers only velcro shoes. And he does not wear winter clothes in the winter, but only snow boots in the summer.
His favorite day is Tuesday and his favorite color is orange, but only until he is 5. He also announced to me as of late, "Hey, Aunt Carrie. I'm going to start wiping when I am 5!"
Just like the jean that is named for him, Hank is big and strong and rough and tumbly. But most of all, he is sweet and kind and loving. As Hank always says, "I love you to the moon and back." He knows no strangers because he confidently introduces himself to everyone on the street. "Hi. My name is Hank. I have 2 dogs, Willow and Cooper."
And as a result, everyone is Hank's best buddy. And he will remind you, a good lesson to all, that "best buddies help best buddies."
The real Hank would be your best buddy. And the jean in his namesake might possibly be, too.
Size + fit
This jean runs large. For best results, we recommend purchasing one size down for a normal fit, two sizes down for a tight fit, same size for a looser fit. If you plan to wash this jean upon receipt and regularly thereafter, purchase your normal size.
Because these jeans are unwashed, you may experience some transfer of indigo dye. Please be mindful of where you sit.
A small amount of shrinkage is to be expected with first wash.
Wear often. Wash not so often.
