Get ready for a totally new selvedge denim experience. We've been hunting for a stellar wool selvedge for years and now we partnered with a mill in Japan to bring these two versions to life for Gustin. These are rare collector styles . . . meet the Japan Wool Selvedge.
Note: We recommend sizing up one as this is a blended fabric.
To set the stage, finding any wool selvedge denim is almost impossible. Most mills don't offer it or even want to make it. Wool is extremely expensive. When we set out to find a real stand-out wool selvedge denim we had a few key requirements. The first was that the wool content had to be high so that it truly influenced the character and feel of the denim. We got it. In these styles, the weft yarn is 100% wool. Despite the cost, this composition is well worth it. The moment you touch this fabric you know it's different. You detect the tell-tale fibrous wool feel instantly. Putting them on, you notice the drape is slightly different than all cotton denim, just a bit more flowing. You feel the wool against your skin, but it's not abrasive. Next, we wanted true heft, and these 16 ounce versions are substantial and tough, exactly what you want in a pair you'll wear for years. Finally, we just couldn't resist creating them in our two all-time favorite selvedge denim colors. This version is an impossibly inky indigoxindigo. The all wool weft takes the indigo dye uniquely creating a slight heather effect to the back of the fabric.
This is one of those rare opportunities to experience something new in denim form.
