This is exactly the type of selvedge that made us fall in love with denim. Knowing that you're walking around in something thoroughly classic and subtle that uses the world's finest ingredients is what selvedge denim is all about. Today it's time to rediscover true quality with a special style from Japan - meet the ZimbabweXBrown Cotton.
The first question many denim connoisseurs ask us is "where is the cotton from?" The answer they're hoping for is Zimbabwe. Why is cotton from Zimbabwe so coveted? It's known for an extra long staple that gives it a legendary toughness combined with a soft feel. The weft gets an equally rare treatment in the form of a very old strain of cotton known as brown cotton. It's commercial use is very limited as it's more difficult to work with. The resulting yarns take on a subtle cream color as opposed to the commercially prevalent pure white cotton varieties. It's truly hard to find better starting ingredients for a selvedge denim, but they also come together masterfully in Japan. At first glance this denim is beautifully dark with with a slight grey/green cast, almost like the Okayama Standard. There is nice vertical grain and texture and a classic red selvedge ID -- all great details. Putting this denim on you notice a difference. It just feels better that most raw denim. The fabric is heavy and dense, but it was comfortable. The back is smooth and you find yourself enjoying even the initial wear-in. 
Finding styles that you won't see from other brands and offering them at a value like this is what we love. The ZimbabweXBrown Cotton is it.
