The "SG5105 slubby" jeans are the lightest option in the Strike Gold's range. These are made of an unsanforized 15oz slubby pure indigo warp and grey weft denim. The fabric has been woven using a super short cotton staple for the weft. The staple length refers to the length of the fibres of any given material. In terms of cotton, this is the average length within a sample of a species. Cotton with longer staple lengths tends to produce softer and hairier fabrics than those with shorter ones, but short-staple fabrics tend to have a fantastic rugged and extremely uneven touch.
To produce this fabric, The Strike Gold have used a super slow spinning of the thread in the shuttle loom to reach this extremely uneven texture.
The Strike Gold denim fabrics are unique in the world for their texture, composition, incredible irregularity, stiffness, roughness and character, delighting denim devotees around the planet.
This model is full of details, including hidden rivets in the back pockets, a deer leather patch, 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. Despite the fabric density, the fabric is very soft and comfortable. 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.
The Strike Gold is undoubtedly one of the benchmark brands when we speak of Japanese denim. Established in Kojima, in Okayama Prefecture, the Hamamoto family has been focusing all its efforts for more than 10 years on producing denim, sweatshirts, shirts and belts of the very highest quality one can find today. Their denim fabrics, unique in the world for their texture, composition, incredible irregularity, stiffness, roughness and character, delight denim devotees around the planet.
