Benzak brings back stonewash jeans

The Amsterdam based denim brand Benzak just launched new stonewashed jeans. Stonewashing was a big trend during the ’80’s. Benzak brings back these memories with their new stonewash jeans. They bring this classic in two options; dark stone and medium stone. Both are made from 13oz rigid denim fabrics from the Italian Candiani mill. The stonewashing fits are available in the fits: B-01 Slim and B-02 Regular. The Benzak stonewashing are the same as 30 years ago, jeans made from 100% cotton, like its supposed to.

The Benzak B-01 SLIM 13oz medium stonewashing

One of the most remarkable stonewash jeans by Benzak is the B-01 SLIM 13oz medium stonewashing. The B-01 fit is based on the BDD-016, which follows a slim silhouette all the way, but has enough room to be comfortable in a heavy, non-stretch fabric. The 13oz denim fabric is sourced from Candiani in Italy. Medium Stone is pre-washed, very similar to a classic 80’s stone wash. The cotton is a blend from 60% standard cotton (India, Brazil, West Africa) and 40% BCI cotton (Brazil, Ivory Coast) to guarantee a strong staple. Candiani changes its cotton composition each lot (twice a year, after each harvest) to get a high and consistent quality. Because the denim is pre-washed, no further shrinkage is expected. The fabric is 100% cotton.
