Roy "Big Brother" Round Two Jeans
Roy Slaper is back at it with a new jean made of a newly developed denim.
The new version of the Big Brother jean is a tweaked Big Bro fit with slightly more taper to the leg. Also, this version of the Big Bro has a plain back (no buckle-back).
The denim on these jeans is an all new 13.5oz loomstate denim which Roy designed from the ground up. Cone did not have or could not produce the selvedge id thread color so Roy had another company manufacture just the single thread that goes through the selvedge line and had the thread shipped to Cone to use on his denim. The warp yarns are made of a conventional American cotton while the weft is made of Supima cotton giving the fill threads an off-white caste. Supima is a longer staple cotton so we're thinking it will be less prone to stretching out and knee bagging.
The fabric for the pocket bags were also custom designed and produced for this jean. They're an undyed (natural) ring-ring 3x1 twill that is loomstate and will be cut in a way where it shrinks with the jean. The pocket bags are a 10oz 3x1 cotton twill which is 100% ring spun, undyed, and unsanforized.
We're really in love with the rear pocket shape, the exposed 2-prong tack and washer rivets, and the fabric. We don't believe we've seen a denim with this much character come out of Cone Mills before, the weave pattern is very unique and so is the shade of indigo.These jeans will go on sale at Noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores on Saturday, January 10th and at 9am (PST) in our online store on the same day.Check the product page for full measurements, a full spec list, more info, and high-res photographs.Shop Roy Online
