Roy Black 'n Blue Indigo Dyed Canvas Jeans
Roy Slaper has finished up a new set of 5-Pocket pants made of an indigo dyed 12oz cotton canvas.
Roy wanted a slim-straight cut super dark pant that wore in with extreme fading properties. He chose this Cone (White Oak) indigo dyed canvas due to how it ages over time, it almost ages like an indigo dyed denim which was produced with massive loom-chatter, yet at the same time this fabric looks quite even when new. One of the most labor intensive garment Roy has produced yet, these indigo dyed canvas pants are a final level of flavorful. From the seashell fly stitch to the psychotically assembled pocket bags these are best viewed completely inside out.
From the outside they're built like a diesel truck and from the inside they're more like a peacock.
Roy suggests soaking these in room temperature water for 10 to 20 minutes and allowing them to air dry before wearing just to get the starch out (for comfort). Not doing this will not hurt the jean necessarily and will yield more contrast in the wear due to the way the fabric will react to wear while still starched.
Considering the time it takes to produce these and the fact that every jean is produced by one man from start to finish restocks or new models do not come often, but when they do, they're worth the wait.These will be available at all Self Edge stores on Saturday November 5th at Noon (Local Time). They'll also be available in our online store at 10:00 (PDT) the same day. Check the online store for a full spec list, measurements, and photos of Roy wearing the jeans:
