Jeans made a beautiful Japanese dry selvage comfort stretch denim that is made by the legendary Kaihara Mills in Japan. The fabric has a redcast and an open construction that will render clear blue hues with wear. It has an orange selvage id line, a feature made exclusively for us. We recommend 6 months of hard, every day, wear before the first wash, if not longer. This way you will end up with a beautiful pair of worn-in jeans. It sure is a long time, however, it's only a recommendation. As long as you give them love, the result will be great.
