Denim shirt made in crispy 12.75 oz. dry black comfort stretch selvage denim. The starch in the denim gives it its crispy hand and, most importantly, generates pronounced creases on the shirt when worn - allowing for some contrasting fades. The denim itself is woven on old school shuttle looms with yarns that have been yarn dyed. The shuttle looms interlace the yarns into the selvage denim and the yarn dying keeps the core of the yarns white allowing the weave to fade beautifully - a slow process that reflects how denim was made back in the day. The finished denim has a clear twill structure which is nicely balanced by a slight slub character which with wear and washing will get more pronounced in a perfectly imperfect way.
The shirt itself is made with felled twin needle seams at body and arms. Front and back yokes have pointy shapes drawing inspiration from classic western shirts. All of these construction details will become more pronounced with wear and generate beautiful contrasts at seams and folds. Selvage details can be found at cuffs, pockets, hang band and at the front placket.
If you are familiar with our shirt fit Jonis, then Jonas is best explained as its twin - looking very similar but with slightly different characteristics. Compared to Jonis, Jonas has more room for movement as well as new shoulder and arm hole construction. Making Jonas more comfortable while still being slim. An improved Nudie classic piece with tons of break-in potential!
As with all our dry denim we recommend at least 6 months of daily wear before the first wash to achieve contrasting fades. This is of course just a recommendation.
