13.75oz Raw Selvedge Denim
Proprietarily rope-dyed in indigo for (5) reiterations. Made w/ top quality US-sourced pima cotton, re-spun for a minimum of 64 times. To ensure fabrics consistency and quality, we procure our denim fabrics directly thru the Japanese Mill (in this case, Kaihara of Fukuyama, JP). The fabrics was sanforized in light to mitigate the hassle in wash shrinkage and weaved in Left Hand Twill. The denim may appear to be a tad too stiff at first due to its unwashed state. Give it some time (& love), the jeans will break-in and fit snuggly.
Custom Artwork Canvas Bag
Jon Gourley's braille and four-letter word artworks printed on both inside and outside of the bag intend to transcend a seemingly explicit w/ a subtle/sarcastic/wit undertone as its hidden layer. Perceived as an initial packaging, the canvas bag is also intended for long term sustainable use: particular for the never-ever-wash-your-raw-denim cult. This canvas dustbag purposed as a travel/ storage haven for that grimy pair of finely worn/aged jeans (without soiling the other clean clothing). Or, it can simple used as a regular bag; no harsh judgement there.
An Edition of #30 Pairs
Like the rest of our denims, each pair of Artist Collaboration batch jeans is hand numbered. We love to experiment and implement new details as we grow. Each batch is distinctly identified by the respective inseam colors. This first batch of the Artist Collab. jeans has a tonal blue inseam color in single felled construction. The quantity of tree ring graphics on the inner pocket also represents its batch number. In short, we simply love these alluded visual cues.
Many folks may not even be aware of the existence/ significance of this seemingly trivial detail. However, these four extra 15-ligne burr tacked inside behind the back pockets are there for some quintessential rationales. Utilitarian as extra reinforcements for the back pockets throughout rigorous wears. Unassumingly subdued at first; these hidden rivets, much like the wallet or phone placed inside the back pockets, will become increasingly pronounced in fades thru age. These are the substantial reasons behind this craft-intensive detail: each back pocket is laboriously hand-sewn for acute precisions.
