SG7104 17oz Super Slubby Denim Selvedge Denim Regular Taper
The Strike Gold is continuously pushing the boundaries of denim in all aspects - with these SG7104 jeans, Tohru and Yoshiko Hamamoto have created one of the most outstanding examples of slubby denim in the industry. This is the ultimate slubby selvedge denim, which is woven loosely and unevenly to the utmost limit of texture with an old-fashioned shuttle loom, using uneven warp yarns that are specially rope dyed with indigo, with very strong uneven slub yarns used for the weft. The result is an incredible fabric with tons of slub and nep.
This 17oz Horizontal Super Slub Selvedge Denim is woven using rope-dyed indigo yarns in a very low tension weave, while purposely running the shuttle looms at incredibly slow speeds. This allows as much texture and character as possible to make its way into the fabric through loom-chatter, but also takes ages to weave relative to even other selvedge denims on vintage shuttle-looms. The result is near-unmatched slub and uneveness, and a rough, heavily textured weft yarn which has unbelievable amounts of visible slub due to the short-staple 100% Zimbabwe cotton used. The slub of the fabric is appealing to all, both to heavy raw denim wearers who want something new and different, as well as newcomers who love the slub and nep characteristics of selvedge denim.
The jeans are finished with The Strike Gold's top-tier details, including contrasting tobacco and lemon cotton thread, 100% cotton arctuates on the rear pockets that will age alongside the fabric, deerskin leather patch, red tab, and custom rivets made from iron male rivets and copper female rivets, which will allow each material to age uniquely over time.
The Strike Gold's Regular or Straight Tapered fit is appealing to all, with a comfortable top block and reasonable taper, with a great tapered silhouette that looks great with boots and sneakers.
