Baldwin Denim 12.5oz Kaihara Selvedge Denim in Indigo: "The Reed" & "The Henley"


Since their launch in 2010, Kansas City's Baldwin Denim has been slowly growing to expand their label to offer a variety of modern denim fits and collection items. The label is named after the designer, Matt Baldwin, who works and designs all items in the great Midwest of the USA. The label is inspired by timeless classic aesthetics while using all USA factories and construction combined with some of the best selvedge fabrics from around the world.

Baldwin Denim "The Reed" 12.5oz Kaihara selvedge denim in indigo. 100% cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in USA. $220. For more information on the Baldwin "Reed" Kaihara selvedge denim, click here.

The "Reed" is Badwin's classic slim straight leg fit that is tailored in the right places and will work for basically anyone. It has a medium to low rise, slim in the thigh, has a slight taper yet remains pretty straight from the knee to the leg opening. It is a classic fit that has a great silhouette. The back pocket design on the Reed is slightly larger than typical and runs deep, a good look for a slim straight fit.

Baldwin Denim "The Henley" 12.5oz Kaihara selvedge denim in indigo. 100% cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in USA. $220. For more information on the Baldwin "Henley" Kaihara selvedge denim, click here.

The "Henley" is Badwin's classic slim tapered fit. It has a medium to low rise, runs tight in the thigh, tapers from upper thigh to lower leg, and has a narrow leg opening. It is a slim fit that has a great silhouette. The back pocket design on the Henley is slightly smaller and angled, a nice touch on a slimmer profile.

Some of the identifying features of Baldwin denim include the single exposed back pocket rivet, a triple stitched reinforced yoke, chain stitching throughout, hidden selvedge details, and a 4oz Missouri steerhide leather patch.

This model uses a 12.5 oz sanforized right hand twill selvedge denim woven on vintage shuttle looms in Japan from Kaihara Mills. The selvedge is white with red accents.
