IH-634-LB -Straight Cut Loom Breakers....They're as hard as duck....



Limited to a total of 37 pairs worldwide

We had grand plans of making a shed load of this incredible shuttle loom woven selvedge duck.  Duck (AKA canvas) has to be woven at higher tension than denim, being a plain weave the higher tension fills in possible gaps in the finished fabric.  But the loom could not take the strain and this happened……


We did manage to weld the loom back together but decided that it was not worth the risk of doing even more damaged by weaving more.

That left us with only enough fabric for 69 jeans.  We made 32 in the 666 cut and 37 in the 634 cut and that is all there will ever be.  We are using the remaining indigo yarns to make a projectile loom woven version of the fabric, it'll be similar, but will not have a selvedge ID.

No and I am really sorry.  The run was so limited, I have to limit the size range.

Cool!
What's the latest advice on sizing, if any - considering duck shrinkage & stretch, as well as the actual measurements in relation to the sizing of the regular IH-634S...

Sizing info is on the product pages, which only those receiving emails (G is currently working through them) can see at present.  I'm sure he'll be happy to talk more about fit - but these are sanforized (so little or no shrinkage) and will stretch out a little with wear, but not as much as regular denim.

On Sunday morning, we'll put the pages live for everyone to see/order whatever's left in stock.
