Left hand twill, also known as "s twill", is a weave in which the grain line runs from the top-left hand corner of the fabric to the bottom right which is the opposite of right hand twill. It was originally used by Lee denim as its basic denim and now used in many premium denim companies such as 45rpm, Lee Japan, and Kicking Mule Workshop. Left hand twill tends to wear down softer than right hand twill and thus a softer hand feel after washing. Left hand twill will also have different wear patterns as the fabric can emphasize streakiness or vertical fading.

The fabric has clean surface, very smooth in texture, and will be comfortable from the initial wear. It is also a dry sanforized raw selvedge which can shrink with the initial soak/wash. Expect approximately 1/2" of shrink in the waist line which will stretch back out and about 1/2" of shrink in inseam length.

Exposed selvedge detail along coin pocket. Satin nickel rivets reinforce the pockets and are all pounded by hand.

Deer skin leather patch.

Satin nickel finished doughnut buttons used for button fly. Selvedge details are on the interior of the button fly. Embroidery details along interior waist band.
