3Sixteen Celebrates 15 Years Anniversary

3Sixteen is celebrating their 15 years anniversary with some special jeans and denim jacket. The celebration items are made with the 15x fabric in two different jeans styles and the classic Type 3 Trucker jacket. The denim for these special items is a heavy 16.5oz slub yarn. It’s a selvedge fabric with great vertical streaking. The collection is produced in U.S.A.

Celebration Jeans

The jeans are available in two different fits; Narrow Tapered and Classic Tapered. The 15x fabric is woven in Japan with lots of variance in the warp yarn. This heavy slub yarn gives a beautiful, inconsistent vertical falling that will only become more pronounced as the fabric wears in over time. This denim is sanforized, so no pre-soak is needed. The pocket bags of the jeans are remnant flannel fabrics that they’re using for years already.

The jeans have custom gunmetal shanks and rivets. The fly and coin pocket shows selvedge details. The leather patch is from Tanner Goods.
