This pair of Gapstar jeans is the first selvage pair made by Dutch company G-star in the mid ’90’s. Gapstar had to change their name into G-star because of the Gap Jeans brand from the U.S. G-star’s first raw selvage denim was the now famous model U.S. Lumber, but this was their first red line selvage denim, pre-washed in an ultra soft left hand fabric quality. It’s a classic five pocket jean, anti-fit model. The jean is in my private collection for a long time and a true collectors item nowadays. This is where it all started…Check out the old back pocket stitching on the really big pockets.
