Stevenson's fabric for "Ventura" jean is made with Zimbabwe cotton, hand-selected and woven on old shuttle looms, which gives the material a unique character. The denim used in these jeans is an original fabric developed by Stevenson Overall Co. for its line of jeans and woven by the famous Okayama Kuroki denim mill. It features a rough and slubby character, with a subtle green colour undertone. Even the yarn used is produced for Stevenson by the oldest yarn production factory in Okayama, ageing like a 100% cotton yarn but still very strong so that the jeans last longer.
The handmade process of creating each pair of Stevenson Overalls are symbolized through the features like the curved belt loops, back pockets and coin pockets, which are all crafted using the same single stitch flat-felled seam method originally applied to denim production during the 1920s.
"Ventura" has a versatile and comfortable straight leg cut, becoming a modern standard.
We stock the non-wash version, so we highly recommend you to soak the jeans in hot water before the first wear. Expect around 4cm (1.5in) of shrinkage in the waist and 6,4cm (2.5in) in the inseam when soaking. Please, keep it in mind when looking for your size in the product size chart.
Stevenson Overall manufactures entirely in Japan on antique machinery. It produces incredibly durable and characterful garments featuring some unique construction details.
