The "SG2105 brown weft" fabric is an unsanforized 17oz heavyweight slubby indigo brown-beige weft dyed fabric that adds character and a light brown rustic indigo hue. It is made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton to create a rigid and slubby hand feel.
This model is full of details such as its hidden rivets in the back pockets, a deer leather patch and custom iron male rivets and copper female rivets. The male rivets will begin to oxidize over time, but the female ones will darken, providing an ageing aspect.
The Strike Gold jeans are notably stiff, the result of always searching for the best raw materials, the most virgin materials possible. Consequently, The Strike Gold jeans make for tricky wearing the first times, but bit by bit they will yield after the first few uses and result in a comfortable garment that moulds to the body like a second skin. Thanks to the spectacular fade the denim acquires over the years, The Strike Gold jeans always achieve a unique character.
The cut is a slim straight fit, with slim thighs and offering room at the knees and calves.
We stock both non-wash and one-wash versions. For the non-wash version, we highly recommend you 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 so please, keep it in mind when looking for your size in the size chart (How to soak your denim). For the one-wash version, expect no shrinkage.
