When a sample of our Japan Selvedge Corduroys came through the office this week there was literally a fight for who would get them -- they are just that good. Fortunately we got our hands on one last roll of fabric (less our own personal pairs of course).
Gustin jeans made from selvedge corduroy from one of the finest mills in Japan. Corduroy is classic, there's no arguing it. It's been used for centuries and despite the vagaries of the fashion cycle, it never goes away. We wanted to find a corduroy that went beyond the basics. To us that means selvedge. This super rare fabric has that and more. It starts with a sandy brown shade, just what you think of when corduroy is mentioned. The surface is velvety soft and the cord is wide enough to have a touch of ruggedness while not being over the top. At 9 ounces this style is heavy while the suppleness of the fabric keeps it very comfortable. A prominent red selvedge ID is there to remind you this is no run of the mill cord. Instead of our chino cut, we're going to sew this up in a denim construction. We like the idea of a more casual construction using fabrics we see in more formal settings. Get ready for selvedge like you've never seen before.
This is the same style and quality that was sold in boutiques all over the country for $205+.
