Indigo 25oz Selvedge Denim - Face

•    Sanforized and unwashed
•    Right hand twill
•    White weft, indigo rope dyed warp
The result of a late night ‘chat’ with Roger Hatt from VMC and initially woven to commemorate VMC’s 25th anniversary, this denim is so sought after we have continued making it ever since.  It is what we believe to be on the limits of what can be woven and sewn, and worn with any degree of comfort.  The first few weeks of wearing a pair of jeans made from this denim is a challenge, but after a while they end up feeling like sweat pants.  This denim fades with great contrast.
