21oz Selvedge Denim "1955" Straight Cut Jeans - Indigo

Our take on the iconic Levi's 1955 501 jean, the 1955S has a high rise and tapers from the knee to the cuff. This version is made from our signature 21oz indigo selvedge denim. Whilst this is a relaxed, traditional cut, it is extremely flattering on many body types.

Indigo 21oz Selvedge Denim - Face

•    Sanforized
•    Right hand twill
•    White weft, indigo rope dyed warp
Our signature denim, we achieve bulk by making the weft from 2 twisted yarns.  We weave under fairly low tension to achieve an amazingly soft but super thick denim which moulds and drapes particularly well.  The weft is quite slubby and the denim has a lovely 'hand made'  feel to it.  Fades with fairly low contrast.
