The Ecru Selvedge Fabric

After the blue Cone Mills selvedge fabric version, Brave Star comes with their natural version too. The brand has a small sample lot in storage and always wanted to do a workwear jeans in this color. This is not a bright white, but natural, undyed, and unbleached warp yarns of varying shades in their virgin state have been used to formulate this unique shade. Echoing the warm, creamy tone of buttermilk, this nuanced shade of off-white adds a rich texture to the face. The yarns have an amazing character with all the fullness of the irregularity showing thru with ridges of highs and lows. The selvage ID is red and contrasts well with the natural denim.

The Fit Of The Jeans

The fit of Brave Star’s The Die Hard Double Knee ecru jeans is their new fit. The fit has in comparison to their true straight a half size more room throughout the low hip, thigh, and knee to accommodate the double knee panels so it is considered our most generous fit. A slightly higher front and rear rise than the true straight. Subtle taper from the knee down to the hem.
