Proudly, American Made

Raw Denim is in a class all it's own and you will love how it looks, feels and wears over time. These are not the disposable, cheap jeans you blow out and buy every six months. Tobaccos are built to last, our denim and American construction will take anything you can throw at it and look better as you break them in. Indigo goes with anything, these jeans can be worn out to a more formal gathering, but are most at home on the open road, hiding blood, sweat and grease and making sure you look great. Tobacco jeans are modeled after classic American brands with an updated slim-straight fit. Size up for a more relaxed look or size down for a skinnier profile. See the sizing guide for details.

Tobacco Protection

Our proprietary, Comfort Controlled Lining is made with 100% abrasion and high temperature resistance fiber thread lining to protect you with determination and persistence when safety is critical. Tobaccos feel soft against your skin and are designed to give you maximum breathability and flexibility, while still protecting your skin from the grinding pavement if things go sideways. You can ride with confidence knowing that your Tobaccos give you a skin-saving layer between your ass, and the asphalt.

Tobacco Black Jeans Road Rash

Raw Denim

Maybe 10% of jeans are raw, meaning the denim has not been washed, distressed, or treated in any way after the dying and weaving process. Raw jeans will feel more rigid and crisp at first, after a few rides the denim softens as it starts to mold to your shape. As you break in raw denim it will crease, fade and shape to your body, becoming a perfectly fitted second skin completely unique to you.

    Archetype = Amazing

    They felt pretty stiff when I first put them on. After one ride in hot weather, they felt like the best pair of jeans I own. My wife is a bit of a denim connoisseur and has encouraged me to wear all kinds of really expensive designer stuff over the years that I absolutely hated. She saw me wearing these and was instantly on board and very complimentary…now she wants some for herself. I’ve worn them while riding my FZ09 and my Wide Glide and the fit is dialed for both riding positions. Two enthusiastic thumbs up. Best riding pants I’ve ever had.

    most comfortable pair of kevlar jeans ever

    most kevlar jeans are uncomfortable - these can be worn all day the mesh lining helps a lot and oh by the way, they look great! worth every penny! favorite denims in my closet (washed in cold water twice on delicate cycle and let hang dry to soften them at first)

    Top notch.

    When my jeans arrived, of course I tried them on... They fit well and looked like JEANS not riding jeans. Being brand new they were stiff, but after one cold water wash cycle and a low heat dryer cycle they felt more like my favorite Levi's. To soften them even further I ran them through a no heat air tumble cycle in the dryer with about 36 tennis balls... Now they are my favorite jeans... to ride in & work in.

    Best jeans ever!

    This is my 3rd pair of Tobacco jeans and have both the caballo and archetype. They break in better than any jeans I've ever owned. I wear them riding or casual, they are my go to jeans every day. Fits true to size, I'm 6-1, 225 and the 36inch waist breaks in perfect for me.


    These jeans required me to work them in a bit as I have worn them. For me, that is part of the charm and quality. I haven't found a pair of pants that offered every day comfort, all day long. These do that. I ride daily and see these getting better with age. Get a quality belt and you'll be set.


    Looked like this brand was solid and I was excited about the piece, I had bought the archetype indigo jeans.As I expected the Kevlar lining isn't fully sewed in and ends up itching the back my legs during ridings. not to mention your paying from Kevlar that doesn't actually cover your full legs (butt and around knees). All the Jeans come at a length of 36 which was frustrating because you'll have to get it hemmed/ tailored which will cost some more after your $300+ Jeans.That or be stuck with a massive cuff that can get caught while your riding. Overall while every looked good, for the price. idk if ill buy anything else for a while.

    Loving the zipper in these. Everything feels right about these and they give me that extra confidence on the road. Well done Tobacco. Thank you!
