Pure, rugged Japanese raw selvedge denim with a metallic twist. Say hello to the Metal ID.
Please note that the silver metallic thread woven into the selvedge ID may set off metal detectors at security checkpoints.
Some of styles that remain our favorites for years are those that combine a gold-standard raw denim base with subtle details that are left mostly for the owner to know about and enjoy. They don't scream loudly, they just represent an artistic detail that some of the best mills in Japan like to add to their quality products. This philosophy is what drew us the Metal ID. It starts with the raw selvedge denim blank canvas that Japan is so good at creating. A deep indigo warp is crossed with crisp white weft and a rare left hand twill weave. Left hand twills are prized for a softer break-in. The yarns are slightly slubby giving the surface a visible flame of white weft and a good amount of starch gives this style the crispo feel we love on day one. This is just hands-down quality raw denim. It's the subtle finishing touch that makes this style that little extra bit special. A silver metallic thread is woven into a selvedge ID, revealing a subtle shine. It can be hidden if you want, or exposed for all to see. It's a small reminder of the craft, devotion and respect Japan has for this historic fabric.
