Loom-chatters, broken fills, broken ends, mispick lines, are several fabric irregularities and imperfections when it comes to denim textile. Moreover, if we’re talking about selvedge denim that’s loomed with ancient shuttle looms. Quite a reasonable thing as, most of the times, the mechanics of vintage shuttle looms are filled with many uncontrollable variables during weaving.
For most of us denim heads, such things wouldn’t be a big deal, as it’s the real-life practice of the beauty of imperfections conception. The natural beauty is the purest form of beauty indeed. But from time to time, we also have to draw the line. Where sometimes we found a broken fill that’s just too long, a loose weft that’s just too obvious, or a filling float that’s just too intruding. In most cases, we separate those who crossed the line from our usual stocks n’ racks.
Rather than those ‘irregular’ pairs just sitting around in our warehouse, it’s better to give ‘em a new home where they’ll be treated as a ‘normal’ pair. Several of those outlier surpluses are exclusively traded thru the Oldblue Irregularities. Of course, they come with irregular offering price as well. Sometimes, our imperfect version can really be you perfect pair, who knows?
