Boncoura 14.5oz 'Type Z' Denim (Relax Tapered Fit)

Size Guide

From an era of free spirits, these are the late 1960s reincarnated as denim!

Boncoura creates elegant designs with unmatched expertise of leveraging quality materials and resources from around the globe. Taking inspiration from the present and the past, they have really created a new standard of quality menswear.

In this time, people were free minded, relaxed and carefree! This was reflected in the vintage denim of that time and Boncoura showed us how!

With an early seen zipped fly, this pair feature ‘pinched’ back pockets which were famous in the ‘rushed standard’ construction of the late 60s. The back pockets also feature a curved pocket shape for an even more 'care-free' made look.

The denim itself is very different to others, made by using pure indigo, the rich indigo color will make them age with stronger contrast. The texture is slightly uneven and has a bright indigo look, just like back in the day but better!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
