MERINO DENIM™ is softer and warmer than regular denim. Featuring an innovative elastic waist that's incredibly comfortable with less bulk at the waist than regular jeans (no pockets or fly). The leg width is perfectly balanced, a slim neat leg that's not tight. The waist height is considered high-rise and finishes over the hips at the belly button. Woven from 20% Merino Wool, 79% Cotton and 1% Elastane. This garment is machine washable. If you're unsure of your size we suggest you go down in size, not up in size as the fabric includes 1% elastane which will give a little.
