The New Vintage Indigo Jeans

Benzak connects The Netherlands, America, and Japan in their new BDD-711 Vintage Indigo jeans. The new jeans style is designed in The Netherlands, the cotton of this pair comes from the US and is thereafter woven in Japan. The outcome is a pair of jeans that can be worn perfectly all year round.

The BDD-711 Style

The BDD-711 is Benzak’s take on a classic regular fit with a long rise, dropped crotch, roomy thighs, and tapered legs. Perfect for men who prefer a more roomy fit in the top block of a pair of jeans. It tapers down from the knee so it has a slimmer bottom and therefore a contemporary casual look.

The Fabric Of The Jeans

Benzak used a special 11oz right-hand twill Japanese selvedge fabric with a subtle silver ID for this new style. The 100% cotton fabric is made with American cotton, which is a reference to vintage denim together with the 11oz as most jeans wouldn’t be heavier back in the day. The threads of the fabric are dyed with natural indigo which gives the jeans a bright blue tone. They pre-washed this jeans so the color will be more pronounced. Also, the structure of the fabric is slightly irregular, another link to vintage denim. The fabric is woven by Collect Mills from Kojima, Japan.

The Special Details Of Benzak’s New Jeans

The BDD-711 Vintage Indigo jeans feature Benzak’s unique hidden 6th pocket. The waistband is chain stitched from end to end, the belt loops are tucked, and they used hidden rivets, and felled inseams.

The closure is a fly button made of stainless steel while the rivets are made of 100% copper. The pocket bags are made with 8oz off-white herringbone fabric, and the woven labels with 100% cotton base and polyester detailing. The hems are chain stitched for an authentic look.

On the back pocket, they stitched Benzak’s bull horns. Instead of a leather patch, they created a printed cloth patch in Japan. The jeans itself is also produced in Japan to reach the highest quality.
