Made from the original UES 14.9 oz. selvedge denim this tapered fit has been updated to suit the western customer with a longer inseam and slightly higher rise. This is a modern silhouette with plenty of room in the thigh area.
Soft Zimbabwe cotton is blended with brown cotton to produce this signature denim.

The denim has classic vintage fading properties that never disappoint. It is a shrink to fit denim. Woven on old wooden shuttle looms with plenty of chatter this denim has a touch of nep and slubbiness that gives it real character.
