We recently came across a batch of this now dead-stock and highly rare American selvedge and couldn't think of a more fitting day to make it available to you. The most you can ask from a great selvedge denim is that it starts out beautiful and gets even better over time. As you can see from this well worn pair, the 1968 absolutely delivers.
Gustin jeans made from sanforized raw selvage denim from Cone Mills White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina. The 1968 was somewhat of a premium denim company darling. It was used by many and there's a reason for it. It sneaks up on you. It seems unassuming at first, but when you see the beautifully rich indigo shade and crisply starched raw feel you know you're touching classic quality. 20oz denim is cool. Super light denim is fun too. Let's face it, the 13.5oz sweet spot is a winner. It works year round and that's what you get in the 1968 - it has great body. We used this fabric as we were developing the skinny fit and knew we had to get our hands on more than just sample yardage. This is American denim at its best and quick possible the last time we'll ever have it.
This is the same style and quality that was sold in boutiques all over the country for $205+.
