The Foster Jean

The Foster Jean is part of a collaboration between E.L.V. DENIM and Gabriela Hearst.
Vintage jeans are reworked into abstract curved lines on flare-leg pants. The jeans are made entirely from upcycled post-consumer denim that is sourced and colour matched by hand, and produced locally by E.L.V. DENIM in London. Each garment is one of a kind.
Here at E.L.V. DENIM we want to make buying jeans online as simple as possible.
Follow the below steps to find your size.
1. Find yourself a measuring tape.
2. Hold your breath and measure your high-waist (just above your tummy button) in inches.
3. This will be the size you take in our jeans. However, we do say that it is not about the size you are, it's about how you want to wear the jeans.
4. If you would like the style to be a bit looser, you can go up a size or two for a more relaxed, lower rise fit.
5. Watch our size guide videos for a more in depth style guide.

We design for circularity, with every aspect of our sourcing, design and production innovatively re-imagined by our skilled design team and local ateliers to deliver the highest quality of craftsmanship.
We hand-source only the highest quality materials from vintage wholesalers in the UK. Our design-led approach to sourcing allows us to work collaboratively with our suppliers to create genuinely one-of-a-kind garments.
Each item is 100% upcycled and crafted from hand-paired pre-loved garments. All E.L.V. DENIM garments are skilfully made by hand, locally in East London. This is to ensure the highest quality production, support of our local communities and further reduce our carbon footprint.
We work tirelessly to ensure every aspect of our design, sourcing and production have as little an impact on the environment as possible. Striving to prevent unwanted materials going to landfill and extending the life of pre-loved items, we are consciously crafting lasting luxury.
All our processes are designed to reduce waste, reduce our carbon footprint and thus impact on the environment - from our innovative approach to curated sourcing, using only upcycled materials and recycled packaging.
We offer a take-back scheme for your unwanted jeans and a ‘repair/alter for life' service – meaning your E.L.V DENIM unique pieces can evolve with you over the years.
In the interest of maintaining the highest standards of sustainability all our garments are produced in limited quantities. We also offer made-to-order and entirely bespoke services.
We are committed to always finding new and better ways to reimagine sustainable fashion to reduce the impact of the fashion industry on the environment.
Following wash-care label advice can extend the life of your clothes. We advise you to wash at 30ºC, keep colours separate, line dry, and iron on low heat.
