This is selvedge denim for people who love the highest quality, classic, Japanese style raw denim. Weight, yarn, color, it's all there in a heavy 16 ounce package.
Gustin jeans made from sanforized raw selvedge denim from one of the finest mills in Japan. Despite our love of variety in selvedge denim, there is something that remains special about the classic fabric coming out of Japan. They are masters of subtlety and tweaking little details to create something truly beautiful and vintage. The Heavy Antique Japan is our latest example. It starts with weight and feel. This is significant fabric. 16 ounces of densely woven cotton with a good amount of starch makes this fabric feel absolutely tough. That starch will help you get lock in nice creases. The color is a very dark indigo, coming from the warp. The weft is strongly beige tinted and the yarns are slubby. The result is nice show through on the top surface and a slightly dusty brown, antique cast. You also pick up nice cross hatch grain throughout the surface. The classic red ID picks up the tinted weft as well. This is the kind of denim you will always return to.
This is the same style and quality that was sold in boutiques all over the country for $205+.
