One of the most special denim fabric on our entire range. To say that this is an exclusively-&-freshly-milled denim is quite an understatement. As the background story behind this particular denim is extensively long. One of the mission towards this release is that we want to do something in regard to the closest region-adjacent that we have, that is the South-East-Asia region. We want to make a statement that something entirely made in South-East-Asia can really stand out too in this denim industry and the world of blues.
We then worked together with Atlantic Mills from Thailand to make that idea happened. We both decided to make something really special; moreover something that they’ve never even done before. By special, we mean this denim was made using extremely short-staple slub yarn that’s originated from US cotton. It’s then spun specifically in Japan. And finally, it’s woven n’ shuttle-loomed in Thailand. It took over 1 year to actualize the idea into reality. And seeing the outcome, it’s safe to say all the hard-works were paid off.
The denim is in the mid-weight class; weighted at 18 ounces / square yard. The denim is in sanforized state, so you can wear ’em out of the box without any hustle. As you can easily witness, the main superiority of this denim lays on its particular slub texture; hence we named it, the ‘Over-Slub’. The different with the other regular slub-textured denim fabrics is that the slub yarns were made using short-staple cotton and constructed mostly on its weft face. That’s why you can see those ‘Over-Slub’ textures in a horizonal strike. Take a second and let’s imagine how they’ll fade overtime.
The denim feels very multifaceted and versatile. We decided to build ’em using both of our 8.25″ (slim straight) and 7.75″ (slim) Cut. They’re trimmed using our signature hardware. The open top aka doughnut with burnt copper finish is from Scovill USA. Reinforced with 100% copper rivets also from Scovill Fastener Company. The leather patch is pretty unique as we utilized a pebbled grain cow hide. Such textured leather should well-match the extremely slub textured denim.
