Eff it. These are going into rotation. Can't get much more American than these...US-grown cotton, US-grown natural indigo, woven by Cone in North Carolina, cut and sewn by Brave Star in L.A... and now living here with me in America's exotic Rust Belt. One prelim hot soak to snug em up a touch. #allamerican#naturalindigo#selvedgedenim#jeans
#fadefriday featuring 15oz @conedenim from @bravestarselvage . 5 months effective work wear. 2 soaks, 3 washes (one with gall soap). Yup - I know that's a lot! Regardless, these are really turning into a beautiful pair of jeans. HAVE AN EXCELLENT WEEKEND ALL!
For #selvedgesunday - The pair that piqued my interested in crosshatch... 15oz. Cone slim straights from @bravestarselvage . I hear that vertical+horizontal slub was pretty rare in American denim, so I'm glad to have this pair now that White Oak has gone to greener (bluer?) pastures.
#fadefriday features a pair of Skeletons from @thatssoprimal in the Cone Mills 11.5oz stretch that have been worn almost daily for 2yrs 8 months and have been washed a few times. No matter which quality of raw denim you are breaking in the key is to wear it as hard and as often as possible. Have a great weekend and Stay Raw denim heads...
