What about the Eco denim? @Giles
The warp and weft made form 60% recycled cotton (the spare bits from a bolt of cotton that are left over when the pattern is cut), woven into a 14oz indigo selvedge denim.  As there was quite a lot of weft show through on the original sample, the weft has been dyed brown...

18 oz brown weft denim using recycled cotton?  Now that sounds intriguing.

i hope the 16oz vintage comes in something non-thigh-restrictive (i.e. 634-888) and not just 555/666.

it would be interesting to see if the 16oz crocks as easily as the 18oz does... it would be cool if it held onto its indigo a little more so it could withstand regular washing like a lot of repro/"vintage" denim does.
