The Joe & Co Colliers Selvedge Jeans

The Colliers jeans is a mid rise tapered jeans. It’s also made of Zimbabwe long staple cotton from the Japanese Nihon Menpu denim mill. It is one of the rarest cottons on the planet, grown only by a handful of farmers and cropped once a year by hand. It is then sent to Japan to be woven on authentic 28″ wide shuttle looms and, then indigo rope dyed, without sulpur, and comes with a very slight red cast.

The jeans has the same rich details as the Joe & Co Arkwright jeans. Read also the review of the JCS-Collier-369 Slim Tapered Raw Selvedge here.
