Gusset Jeans. No More Ouch.



Personally, I never thought too much about it although…I felt it a lot. In New Orleans, I had to have my display next to David Hall of Gusset Jeans, to receive my 1st lesson in jeans anatomy.

Ladies and gentlemen, listen to me: ordinary jeans are constructed with a single center seam from front to back and up the legs. These seams are usually sewn with a “fell” fold. This means you are wearing jeans that have 8 ply seams, and they all come together at the same place. Very uncomfortable for both men & women. In 1987, David Hall invented the Gusset Jeans incorporating a “delta” shaped piece of material sewn into the crotch of the jean. This allows stress to be redistributed around the crotch area, allowing greater freedom of movement, comfort and strength. As an added benefit, the original set-turn-and-topstitch construction is stronger and less thick. The result is 3 ply leg seams, and only 9 ply thick at the crotch (not 16!). Now, everybody reading my Blog buys at least one to feel comfortable when reading my daily posts. Made in USA. Gusset Jeans.

    Back in the 70’s they sold them to karate guys as ‘Kicking Jeans.” Most of the karate magazines in the late 70’s and early 80’s advertized them.

    Cyril. I had the opportunity of receiving two pair of these jeans from david and all I can say is “ahhh”, finally jeans I can wear riding and be comfortable! These are 100% USA made and super quality. They are now the “Official Guilty Customs” blue jean. Great product David!

    Great idea.
    Then if they make a “loose fit” jean pattern (that produce 20″ leg openings at the bottom), then cut the legs off them, hemmed at a 17″ inseam. (7) standard Levi-width belt loops Hoping they have oversize back patch pockets for holding open end wrenches….and…and…maybe a (left leg) cell phone pocket and a wide-mouth watch pocket – but for sure (right leg) ruler/cell phone pocket laminate (aka Carpenter Shorts w/o the stoopid belt loop.
    17″ shorts are going to be around for a long….long….time.
    They have to be from a “loose” fit pattern….not a “relax” fit. Don’t blow it like Dickies® did.

    I meant stoopid, liability-waiting-to-happen, pull a working-man into whirling machinery…..HAMMER loop.
    You ever try putting a real hammer in a “hammer loop” and walking around? Break a leg.

    Particularly handy for those living in the South, where humidity can easily get the candy to stick to the wrapper…

    To my limited knowledge, while most martial arts movie stars were wearing a variety of “stretchy” pants, blue-jean-loving Chuck Norris came up with the idea of gusset jeans for the purpose of being able to perform his fight scenes while maintaining his “style.” They were developed and sold to the public by Century Matial Arts. There weren’t so many style options like there are now. Just plain old blue jeans. I’m not sure of the year because I was very young, but as a continuing martial artist, I plan on getting a few more pair. They’re also great for construction workers, laborers, and anyone else who has a job which sometimes requires a bit of physical limberness.
