The Collaboration Items

For the collaboration, they made three special items, two pairs of jeans and a Type-3 style denim jacket. The jeans are a classic tapered fit and a narrow tapered fit. They’re made with a new 12.5oz loom state indigo selvedge denim fabric which is custom woven for the project by Nihon Menpu in Okayama, Japan. The fabric is rinsed to bring out the character of the denim fabric. The selvedge fabric features a special double-line ID detail with metallic gold lamΓ© thread.

USA Made

Once the items were produced in the 3Sixteen’ San Francisco factory, they sent the garments out for an industrial rinse to both remove shrinkage and bring the fabric to life. The jeans and jackets all have a soft, broken-in hand to them post-wash with the ability to wear in and fade beautifully over time.
