Edwin continues to lead the way when it comes to the art of denim: combining their Japanese-rooted craftsmanship and expertise with a contemporary European forward-thinkingness and vision, they’ve been responsible for various revolutions in the jean industry, such as stone-washing and the concept and cuts associated with ‘new vintage’. Rigorously edgy and impeccably cool, they’re the ultimate alternative jean.
This beautiful pair of regular tapered, 100% cotton jeans is made in Japan from Edwin's very own stash of denim. They're the cream of the crop, the pick of the litter, reserved for the real denim aficionados. Derived from the expression 'self-edged', selvage refers to the narrow, tightly woven band on both edges of the fabric which prevents the edge of the denim from unravelling whilst offering an impeccably clean, neat, well-finished look. The jeans are sturdy but soft, comfortable but substantial and feature a beautiful luminous stitching that picks and traces the shape of them in a wonderfully neat, alluring finish, with intricate and beautiful detailing on the back pockets.
The denim weight is 13oz and there is some minimal 'moustaching' (the faded creases) on the front to help the jeans feel classic and authentic from the get-go. This truly is a beautiful pair of trousers, well-built and ready to last you a lifetime, who's look will only get better with age, adventure and wear.
