Benzak Talks About Their First Women Jeans

Recently Benzak Denim Developers released their first women jeans. This pair, W-01 Straight, is a specially made for women, so a new fit within the jeans range of the brand. The fit has a shaped figure-hugging top block and a straight leg. With a mid-rise that sits just above the hip bone, the jeans are suitable for both work and play. This silhouette is perfectly shaped for non-stretch fabrics, without losing comfort.

For this women jeans Benzak used their special #2 Candiani selvedge denim fabric. This fabric has a thicker weft yarn, which gives the interior of the jeans an extra comfortable texture. The fabric is unwashed, rigid, but will soften each wear day. It will mold around your body, and in the end, it will show your personal wear pattern.

The Denim Talk

In the latest edition of the Benzak Denim Talk series, the owner of the brand, Lennaert Nijgh, sat down with Maria Gunnarsson, who helped them create the W-01 Straight jeans. In the video, Maria talks about why it’s so difficult to create a well-fitted pair of women jeans, especially made with selvedge fabric, why there’s a zipper for the closure instead of buttons, and about her own experience wearing the jeans.
