Thank you to the awesome folks at Guerrilla Marketing Consulting! Check out the post here that covers our 1,000 Jeans youtube viral video and ‘Guerrilla Musings of the Day’.
M Jeans loves jeans.
We believe that even ill-fitting jeans have something to contribute. That’s why we asked many of our customers to send us their obsolete pair…
…and approached artist Andrew Huang to do something never heard before: Create a musical celebration of jeans.
Clothing Tall Men featured M Jeans on 10 April 2011. Many thanks to Charlie for his very kind review.
Here’s a section of his review:
Sizes are selected by waist size and height – the inseam is selected for you based on the theory that “most tall men have no idea what inseam they should ask for”. Instead, M Jeans uses measurements collected over the years that show very clear correlations between a man’s body height and the appropriate inseam. For someone 6’6″ tall, the inseam will be 39″. Mark has a point here – I have been wearing 36 inch inseam jeans for years but I recently tried on some 38 inch jeans from a local tall men’s shop (since sadly closed down) and found that I really liked the longer inseam.

M Jeans is now shipping, worldwide. Exclusively for tall men.
Singapore, Singapore (March 31, 2011) – M Jeans® today announced that their M Jeans collection, exclusively designed for tall men – men 6′ 2″ (188cm) and taller, are shipping worldwide, in limited quantities.
All orders are delivered globally, at no shipping cost.
M Jeans is a new jeans brand that caters to tall men who fall outside the standard size distribution that commodity brands market to. This new brand focuses on tall & lean, tall & heavy, and those in between [waist sizes 30 to 48 inches]. M Jeans combines design and fashion along with the fit and quality of custom tailoring. The niche that M Jeans fills is to provide expertly fitted jeans to those people that are not currently catered to because they are simply too tall.
M Jeans was inspired by the word of mouth success of the hand-sewn jeans of M Jeans founder, Mr. Mark Seeger.
Born from a lifetime of frustration and disappointment with not being able to buy jeans that fit, Seeger, 6′ 6″ (198cm), began sewing jeans for himself over 3 years ago. It was not long before tall friends learned of his hobby and queued up.
“It’s all about the fit.” said Mr. Mark Seeger, M Jean’s founder. “Tall men want what everybody else has: to look great in jeans, whatever the occasion. Tall men simply can’t walk into any retail store and pick out a pair of jeans; the jeans are either too short or they fit like a potato sack. Shopping for jeans has always been frustrating.”
Because this one desire is so essential, that is solely what M Jeans focuses on: Making tall men look and feel great in jeans that fit better than any other pair they have ever worn.
“It’s taken years of measurements, and many many experiments, before arriving at the precise fits for the varying body sizes of tall men. And, we’ve combined the perfect fit with style: Jeans we can wear to the office, a work function, or smartly dress down for a club with a hipster tee. Jeans that are versatile, look great, and that fit better than anything we’ve ever bought before.” explained Seeger. “To us guys that are above average height, such jeans are a dream come true.”
M Jeans uses only select raw denim; no washes, rips, or tears. The unique 5-pocket design exudes modest confidence and subtlety, embodied by hidden features such as suede pockets and vintage stitching. The unique cuts are flattering and understated. “Suitable for the relaxed business-casual workplace. No longer do tall men have to put up with limited and inferior choices when it comes to jeans fashion.” added Seeger. “We want to give tall guys the confidence to be stylish and the ability to experiment with fashion like everybody else.”
Because the world of denim has largely ignored the tall person despite their successes, M Jeans is a brand that is solely devoted to those who are truly above and beyond the rest.
Pricing & Availability
The primary M Jeans collection is classic straight cut, fabricated from raw select denim, with muted thread tones, suede pockets, and a unique 5-pocket design. Retail price: $150.
M Jeans will initially sell exclusively through the internet, via a direct-to-consumer distribution model, “because shopping at big & tall stores, and traditional retail, is awful.” comments Seeger. M Jeans are available now in limited quantities from the M Jeans Store® (www.m-jeans.com/shop/), and are delivered globally free of all shipping charges.

Denimology featured M Jeans on 14 March 2011. Titled ‘M Jeans – Denim for Tall Dudes,’ the post starts like this:
Basketball players of the world can rejoice because there is someone out there that shares your wardrobe problems and has decided to do something about it. Tall dude Mark Seeger got sick of trying on jeans that just wouldn’t fit due to his height (Mark is 6’6″ or 1.98M if you are metric). …

Yesterday, M Jeans was featured on My Many Bags. A big thank you to Kevin for his kind review.
Here’s a snippet of his feature:
Fret not, tall men of the world… The fashion gods have answered your prayers. They have sent forth yet another saviour to solve another fashion crisis! This time it is none other than Singapore based, American export, Mark Seeger. He has just launched his new line of mens jeans, named M JEANS. Meticulously researched and tested, just for those taller men who never seem to be able to find a well fitted pair in any retail store.

You’ll note that there is no selection for specifying your inseam (pant length) on the SHOP page. This is because the mass amount of data that I’ve collected over the years from making jeans for tall guys revealed something remarkable:
Most tall men have no idea what inseam they should ask for.
Because we tall guys typically buy whatever we can get (the longest pair we can find, be it 34″ or even 36″), we have little or no experience with what specific inseam looks best on us. The measurements that I’ve collected over the years show very clear correlations between a man’s body height and the appropriate inseam. For example, I stand 6’6″ tall and my inseam is 39″ (that’s what I wear in the photos on this website). Based upon traditional shopping experiences alone, I would never have known this because 39″ inseams are just not available.
So, rather than ask a question many men may not know the answer to (inseam), I ask body height (everyone knows this) and then I do a lookup in my size tables and match the appropriate inseam.
