The same composition as our popular Loomstate fabric, this time with a black warp instead of indigo. You get the absolute purity of loomstate selvedge with a vintage black look. Note: We recommend sizing 2 to 3 up compared to your standard Gustin size owing to the denseness of the weave and the shrink-to-fit nature of this fabric.
Loomstate is the ultimate expression of the way denim was first made. It’s fabric right off the loom with absolutely zero treatment. It’s unwashed, unsinged, unskewed and unsanforized. Pure denim.
Every other raw selvedge denim we have used (and that most other brands use), while raw, has undergone treatments to make it more consistent and predictable. You might be thinking, “yeah, there’s probably a reason for that right?” There absolutely is. Most mills will not even sell Loomstate. If they do, it’s buyer beware, you buy it you own it. The mills just don’t like the unpredictability of a totally untreated fabric. Despite all this, there is just something very special about the untamed nature of Loomstate denim.
This style is from a mill in Japan we've worked with a lot of times in the past. Even if it wasn't Loomstate, we would want this fabric. It has incredible texture. The super slubby yarns give it a grainy hand feel. You just want to touch this fabric. The overall shade is a vintage black coming from a black warp on white weft construction. Being unsinged, the surface has a subtle hairiness to it. Finally, it's a solid 13.5oz pre-soak (14.5oz post-soak) with a pink selvedge ID. Overrall, a hugely rich fabric in every sense.
Loomstate is an investment. It’s beyond your typical raw denim break-in. We recommend sizing 2 to 3 up compared to your standard Gustin size. I wear a 31, so I would likely go for a 33 because I have a bit of room in my 31’s. To accommodate for the inseam shrinkage, we'll be doing a 36" inseam for sizes up to 33, and 38" in sizes 34 and above. You can influence how much your pair shrinks by how you wash it. We recommend cold soaking in the tub followed by a hang dry. This method will get you about two sizes of shrink and your Gustin Loomstates will be super stiff at this point. You’ll probably be tempted to stand it up on its own and it might actually work. Throw them on and enjoy the break-in process! This is one of the greatest feeling fabrics we’ve ever tried on.
Given that this is such a unique and experimental fabric that will require soaking/washing before the first wear, we will not be able to take any returns or exchanges of the Loomstate for any reason.
