Oven-baked shoestring fries

Husband made over-baked shoestring fries the other night. He says that the key to the fries is cutting them thinly and evenly enough.

Toss them in a bowl with olive oil, salt, and spices; this time he added chipotle powder and garlic powder (husband points out that you should not use actual garlic, because it burns quickly).
Bake in a 400-425 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes or so.
They're done when they reach the level of browned crunchiness that you like. Husband points out that it's a balancing act between how crispy they get and how burned they can get, so you might want to check them every few minutes near the end.
Drain on paper towels. Salt before serving.
