Howies OSD, hang-dried after their second wash, which left them stiff enough to stand on their own. Check out how, when viewed from the inside, the honeycombs are defined by indigo staining of the weft threads rather than fading of the warp threads.

The fabric (mercerized cotton) and colors are nice, and the fit is decent if you size down. I got both of mine thrifting too.

Most black jeans have traditionally been overdyed, meaning both the warp and weft fibers are black. That is why for most black jeans, the outside and inside appearance of the fabric is identical.

I'm not in NYC or LA, so I guess "unknown" in this case means "I've never seen it and nothing shows up on an SF search."

I've also mostly looked at pants from Gazzarrini. I ended up getting a pair of distressed jean-cut black cords that came with a little honeycombing behind the knees - something I haven't seen...
Of course, everyone zeroes in on the Jil Sander, Margiela, Dries Van Noten, and Costume National stuff they carry, but I'd like to hear from those who've been more adventurous and ordered things from one of the zillion Italian labels that can't be found anywhere else in the U.S. I've personally had good experience with pieces from Xavier Delcour and Gazzarrini Uomo, but I also like a lot of what I see from Corpo Nove, New York Industrie, and Asola.
