Red Ear jeans - Page 3

post #31 of 59
I would still like some type of reasonable proof that the jeans are woven on 1920s or 1890s wooden looms. Is there any validity to that?

I got a booklet on red ear and it says 1920's but I don't think this the made in china line. I think the made in japan line is the 1890's looms.

Are they the actual 1920s looms or replicas of them?

This books says "wooden shuttle loms are very old, they date back to the 1920's and have not been used in denim manufacturing since the 1970's."

That doesn't necessarily date them to the 20s. It just says that wooden looms date back that far. If they were true looms from the 20s I think they would do their best to clearly state that. That would be quite a selling point if it were the case.

it talks about the cotton, then "this is spun, hank dyed and woven on the wooden shuttle looms in japan..." the next page it talks about the looms dating back to the 20's...(see above).

Apparently Paul can use these looms cause he is a rockstar in japan.

Hi,

Can you let me know where I can get one?????

Nice icon by the way!

Thanks

Rawganique has 100% hemp jeans, but they are unisex. The Hempest has a few blends (hemp/cotton). Also, you can try looking for Rogan blends.

yo, I saw a pair of Red Ear jeans that cost approx USD800. They are japanese denim. THe strange thing i notice, the "washing" label on the jeans actually said "DO NOT WASH". Is this the new line for Red Ear? Who have came across the Red Ear "DO NOT WASH" jeans? I will like to have more info on that. THankz

Have red ears been faked?? I've just searched on ebay and they go for less than a 100 bucks.

Not all Red Ear jeans are selvage, I believe they were originally but there are now a number of non-selvage styles.
The stuff I see in England now doesn't seem as nice as when the line started.
