This dungaree needs no further introduction, the 21/23 Oz Heavy Weight, or simply known as “The Beast“, is one of our most notable dungarees. First released back in 2011, The Beast has made its way back this year! Yes, it’s back, still brutish, wild and savage as ever! Can you tame The Beast?
This Oldblue’s ever-signature denim still holds the exact same formula and construction from 2011. A heavy-weight 23.7 oz. 3 x 1 selvedge loom-state denim. Constructed with irregular slub yarns and finished with pink / light red selvedge ID. All loomed and milled in Okayama, Japan.
The denim is in this deep blue tone with a decent amount of hairiness all over. The hand feel is on the rougher side of the spectrum, but surely it’ll get softer after months of wear and several washes down the line.
The Beast also sports Oldblue’s signature details, from the single-looped arcuate on the back pockets, the Oldblue’s signature looped stitch on coin pocket, to the signature two-tone chainstitched hem.
Of course, you can expect to find the hidden rivets, the raised back pockets and belt loops details, the overlock shell-stitch on its fly, and the two-tone double felled inseam construction. A dark red – natural hickory fabric is utilized as the pocket bag fabric.
This dungaree is trimmed with our own customized open top buttons, developed by the reputable Scovill Fasteners. The Buttons have this striking burnt copper finish. The jean is reinforced with 100% copper rivets, customized and developed by the same company. For the leather patch, we utilize the veg-tanned Horse Strips from USA. Same material we’ve been using since 2011 from Horween, Chicago.
Sportin’ our most classic n’ trusted cut, the 8.25” Cut that has a clean slim straight build. It falls nicely between the slim to the regular straight cut. It starts quite slim in its thigh area – hugging a little closer than a regular straight cut would be. And it has a nice and cleans straight silhouette down to its hem.
It has a medium rise build, so it will give you more room (read: more comfortable) on the top block. This cut has proven to be one of our most versatile ones that can caters various kinds of body types.
