Few weeks ago, we had debut the Women Skinny in 3 shades of Grey.
Today, let's talk more about the perennial raw version of the Charcoal Grey. 
Its constructed with 13.50oz. Japanese rope-dyed redline selvedge denim from the legendary Kaihara Mill. The Skinny tailoring is as svelte as our indigo version, but you would feel the fabric weight difference right away when pulling this on the first time.

This denim would feel denser, more rigid w/ slightly less stretch. Riveted w/ matte black metallic burr and a flip-lock Swiss made premium RIRI zipper. The double-felled inseam is accent w/ a batch-specific carrot color thread to draw a sharp contrast w/ the grey tone.

Think of it as raw canvas; add your own personal touch to it by wearing the pair thru nights and days.   
Like our regular collection, #165 pairs were made and hand stamped individually. Available now in our webshop and at our brick & mortar stockists. 

Its Friday and its Oktoberfest!! Cheers and drink up everyone, 'til next week.

Grey is versatile.

It matches with anything quite effortlessly: whether to complete a pure noir look or as a neutral backdrop to accent that punchy color.

While Indigo will always held a special place in our palette, Grey is easily our 2nd go-to color. The real question is in which hue. 

Dark smoke charcoal/ Leaden raven/ almost-Ash, are among our favorite Greys.

That's why at once, we have developed 3 distinct shades of Grey for our girl Skinny jeans. From Raw to Bleached, these are constructed from the same 13.50oz Japanese redline selvedge w/ a hint of stretch. Double-felled seam w/ a vibrant carrot thread color. 

Summer is here, whether you are chilling at the beach or foraging in the woods, these grey jeans will be a perfect fit.

The Raw, Rinsed & Bleached Grey Skinnies are now available in our webshop.
