Just Arrived! 3sixteen 14.5oz Selvedge Denim in Black - ST-200x


3sixteen's new denim production in black has just come out of production, and just like their indigo version, it has been worth the wait! With this 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 tapered 14.5oz selvedge denim in black model ST-200x. 100% cotton. Fabric made in Okayama, Japan, denim sewn in USA. Sizes 28-34, 36. $195. For more information on the 3sixteen slim tapered ST-200x denim, click here.

The 3sixteen ST-200 is a slim tapered fit which has a slim form-fitted silhouette, has a medium/low rise, runs slim in the top block and thighs, and has a strong 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 ST-200x, the only difference being dyed black rather than indigo.

Naked & Famous "Left Hand Twill" Raw Selvedge Denim - Weird Guy & Skinny Guy


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, Kicking Mule Workshop, and now Naked & Famous. 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.

Naked & Famous "Skinny Guy" Japan Heritage 14oz selvedge denim. The "Skinny Guy" fit is slim in the thigh with medium rise and tapers from mid-thigh to the leg opening. 100% cotton. Fabric made in Japan, denim assembled in Canada. Sizes 28-34. $200. For more information on the N&F Japan Heritage Skinny Guy, click here.

The Japan Heritage denim uses a 14oz sanforized raw Japanese selvedge using slub yarns of different thicknesses giving an unbalanced vintage feel. During fabrication, the yarns are dyed in pure indigo and as the yarns have different thicknesses the indigo will penetrate the yarn in different amounts creating tremendous depth and variation in the color. The shuttle looms are set at low tension so the denim is not packed as tightly when woven, which is a common characteristic in Japanese cult denim brands. The result is a a fabric with a soft feel and lustrous texture and denim that will fade to different shades of blue in different portions of the jean.

Other details include the 5 pocket design, button fly, and custom engraved buttons.

14oz selvedge made in Japan with red & white accents.

The coin pocket on the Skinny Guy fit features an exposed selvedge detail. The Weird Guy features a hidden selvedge coin pocket.

Custom engraved rivets. Important meaning from Naked & Famous, if you read French. Detail photo shows the skinny guy fit and the exposed coin pocket selvedge.

We are excited to see how the Japan Heritage denim will fade as the different colors of blue start to show. The above denim has 3-4 months of wear and has been soaked one time.
