3sixteen Slim Straight 14.5oz Selvedge Denim in Black - Model SL-200x


Our latest 3sixteen arrival is the SL-200x black selvedge denim. This is the slim straight version of the ST-200x which we introduced earlier this month. With the current season's production, 3sixteen has introduced a new fabric which is being used on both black and indigo denim productions. The new denim fabric has been custom designed and made in Okayama, Japan which is exclusive to 3sixteen. There are also many small upgrades in the new production which combined with the slim silhouettes makes 3sixteen's new denim one of the best USA made slim fit denims on the market.

3sixteen slim straight 14.5oz selvedge denim in black model SL-200x. 100% cotton. Fabric made in Okayama, Japan, denim sewn in USA. Sizes 28-34, 36. $195. For more information on the 3sixteen slim straight SL-200x denim, click here.

The 3sixteen SL-200 is a slim straight fit which has a slim silhouette, a medium rise, runs slim in the thighs, and has a slight taper from the thigh to the leg opening.

3sixteen's new denim is made with a 14.5oz high slub selvedge denim woven in Okayama, Japan which has been sanforized, skewed, and singed. Though the fabrics has been singed, it is still not heavily processed and the surface will have a hairiness and slub. What we like about it is that to the untrained eye, it looks clean and uniform (so it functions well as a dressier jean), but for someone who knows what they are looking for, they'll be able to spot some interesting facets about the textile. This is the same fabric used on the indigo ST-100x and SL-100x, the only difference being dyed black rather than indigo.
