Nudie Jeans 113784113784-L36-W38
Loose-fit jeans with a wide leg made from exceptionally well-crafted 17 oz heavyweight Japanese selvage denim. Weighing in at 17 oz this denim is one of the heaviest we have ever used, and with a lively aging property, it is a true testament to Japanese craftsmanship. The yarns for both warp and weft have been produced by ring-spinning of the finest organic cotton. Replicating how coarse slub-yarns could look around the beginning of the 20th century – a result that at the time were considered acceptable mostly for rugged workwear. The warp yarns have been rope-dyed in pure indigo – a dyeing technique that produces a rather thin, yet dark outer layer of indigo while the core is kept undyed. An old technique that is considered to render the best results as far as aging goes. These two irregular yarn systems, the undyed weft, and the indigo-dyed warp have been slowly woven on ’50s shuttle looms into true denim art. A coarse, thick, and highly textural denim that renders a grainy surface and pronounced twill lines with wear, and which skews and puckers with washing rendering beautiful marble effects. To us the heritage techniques and the ruggedness it renders are key, it is what makes this denim amazing – and it is a true testament to the aesthetics of artisanal-made Japanese selvage denim. We have paired the denim with tobacco thread, vintage-inspired copper trims, and printed off-white back pocket “embroideries”. These details, the fit, and most importantly the denim pays homage to the humble heritage of the worker’s blue jeans – but to be fair to history we have amped up the weight of the fabric quite a bit. We are very excited to offer one of our heaviest to date, welcome Tuff Tony Heavy Selvage!
