Oldblue Jeans created a heavyweight edition a while ago. For this heavyweight Oldblue Jeans edition they used a clean slim straight fit. A slightly slim silhouette with the comfort of a regular straight cut. A perfect cut for your daily wear. For the fabric they used a 21oz selvage true indigo denim from Japan. The fabric is unsanforized denim. It starts as a rigid 21oz denim and once after the intial soak/wash it will become approximately 23oz. The selvage quality is made on an old authentic shuttle loom. For the innerpockets they used a hickory striped fabric, very strong and thick fabric. For the hardware, they used Japan made 100% copper washer – burr rivets and “Laurel Leaf” iron plated doughnut buttons, also made in Japan. The laurel leaf is a symbol of peace, used a lot on jeans and jackets during WW2. The leather patch is vegetable tanned US horse hide. So this will fade nicely together with this Oldblue Jeans.
This Oldblue Jeans is a true heavyweight champion. The fabric is so stiff that it can stand on it’s own. It’s a heavy denim project for the orginal denimheads.
