Jeans made in selvage power stretch with red cast indigo shade. It's rinsed to get more effect out of the elastane. But is still got great break in potential. We recommend 6 months of daily use for all selvage qualities; this applies to stretch selvage as well. However, this is only a recommendation, because there are no right or wrong ways to break in dry denim.
Since April 2018 we shifted our production into using the paper-based material jacron for our waistband patches. Now all our denim products are produced using the jacron patch. However, a number of our products will have stock of both jacron and leather for some time. This product is one of those and comes with a patch in either jacron or leather. Both do, of course, hold a high quality and are visually very similar.
