The "SG6109 super slubby" fabric is an unsanforized 16.5oz heavyweight slubby and neppy indigo dyed fabric. It is made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton and Strike Gold have used a super short cotton staple for the weft to produce the fabric. Staple length refers to the length of the fibers 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 tends to have an amazing rugged and extremely uneven handfeel.
This is one of the slubbiest fabrics in the japanese denim market. We have selected a non-wash version for this model because we love the hand feel, slub and character of this fabric in its totally pure version. 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 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 difficult 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 tapered fit. The leg narrows from the thigh to the bottom, without being too closed.
As it is non-wash version, we highly recommend you soak the jeans in hot water before the first wear. Expect around 2,5cm (1in) 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 product size chart.
