Got some denim today, 4 types of 100% cotton in 11 to 13.5 oz. Another 2 types in 3.5 & 5 oz for shirts. Spring is almost here and its time to unlock some street-wear fun. Japanese selvedge coming soon too.
For the denim, we would like to know your preferences. We know that selvedge is loved and cherished. Apart from that, what would your wishlist be - for finishing options, garment options, denim color options, denim type options and denim weight options ?
Awesome news :)
11-13.5 oz is great, but another couple around 15-16 oz would make me happy with the range. Colour wise, we need a dark black.
I don't think you guys should do denim. The key to making good denim (in the sense that we talk about on this forum) is having access to a. really good denim, and b. proper vintage sewing machines.
If you are going to, you need to have weights up to 17 oz. You need to have selvedge. It should be 100% cotton, preferably from Japanese mills or Cone Mill in North Carolina.
Why does it have to be comparable to $300+ denim brands? Why can't they just do quality, Levi's-tier non-raw options for those of us that want decent quality jeans with minimal fuss.
The majority of denim wearers don't care about insane quality denim and super high quality sewing and options.
