Regular-fit jeans with a tapered leg crafted from our all-time favorite Japanese black selvage denim. This 14.5 oz. denim boasts a tight weave density and generous starch application, ensuring remarkable rigidity. But what truly distinguishes it is its exceptional aging property, a testament to Kurabo Mills' blend of heritage and innovative denim craftsmanship.
This denim stands out due to its unique construction: the warp, visible predominantly on the fabric's face, is yarn-dyed black, allowing it to gradually fade with wear and washes. Conversely, the weft, visible on predominantly on the fabric's back, is dyed with a 'stay black' dye, retaining its deep black hue without fading. Although this might seem unconventional for fading denim, it yields intriguing contrasts, emphasizing the warp-weft intersections. This clever construction promises more pronounced contrasting fades compared to regular dry black denim.
Beyond its unique yarn combination, the denim's tight weave, stiff texture, pronounced twill lines and slightly coarse yarns create an exquisite surface structure and marbling effects with wear and washes.
For optimal results, we recommend wearing our dry denim regularly for at least six months before the first wash. While entirely optional, this period encourages striking fades.
