Dungarees with a pocket like this on their bib have been very popular in the 40s to 50s. The first one, who created a pocket style like this was Oscar Berman in 1936. His design was patented on 18th april 1936. Inspired by this fantastic idea, which of course was rightly patented, the bib design of the "Rumble59 Raw Selvage Dungerees" was born. This Dungarees doesn't want for storage place: This pair of jeans has two pockets on back with our V59 logo embroidery and an oblong pocket for a folding rule as well as a loop for hammer at pant legs. The front as two sideways french pockets and several, different pockets on bib. A coin pocket with selvage edge as well as a small loop for walletchain complete the large space. An additionally and nice detail: A buttonhole at upper edge of bib for fixation of chain of clock or keys - Just like in the good old days!
Backgroundinfos "Selvage Denim":
Selvage denim (also called selvedge denim) is a type of denim which forms a clean natural edge that does not unravel. It is commonly presented in the unwashed or raw state. Typically, the selvage edges will be located along the out-seam of the pants, making it visible when cuffs are worn. The word "selvage" comes from the phrase "self-edge", the natural edge of a roll of fabric. As applied to denim, it means that which is made on old-style shuttle looms. These looms weave fabric with one continuous cross thread (the weft) that is passed back and forth all the way down the length of the bolt. As the weft loops back into the edge of the denim it creates this “self-edge” or selvage. Selvage is desirable because the edge cannot fray like denim made on a projectile loom that has separate wefts which leave an open edge that must be stitched. The selvage edge is normally fixed by a coloured thread: green, white, brown, yellow or red - which is the is the most common colour. The selvage denim is very high-class and expensive because of the old-style shuttle looms that work much slower. These looms produce a much lower fabric width, which causes a much longer piece of fabric to produce a pair of jeans.
You receive a special and unique "washing" by wearing a raw or even a selvage denim 6-8 month day-to-day without washing this pair of jeans. The first washing fixes the present look which means the colour wouldn't change anymore afterwards or only extremly slow. Denim freaks advise to wash this type of jeans not at all. "Wear, wear, wear" is the motto. If possible to put hand on the pair of jeans: dry clean!
Tips, tricks and instruction details for RAW-Denim:
To take much and of course long pleasure in the unwashed raw look we advise to have this denim dry-cleaned!
Of course machine wash is possible, but it will change the rough, untreated denim character. Also the untreated denim could shrink with the first washing. If it needs to be washed - please necessarily wash it inside out and separately, because unwashed denim will loose a lot of dye. Every new unwashed denim will "bleed out". Because the dark dying could only be realized - and could last a long time - if the denim is dyed with indigo for several times. Indigo isn't colour-fast which brings the typical, natural ageing process of blue denim. Insiders and fans of RAW-Denim know that's the reason why you should take care with all light fabric covers, wallpapers and bags while wearing this denim. There also may be staining on light clothing such as underwear, sox and shoes just effected by body heat.

About selvage denim:
Selvage denim, otherwise known as "selvedge" (or "self-edged" for the woven fabric's "real" edge) denim, is produced with a clean, "real" selvage edge. The special denim fabric is usually turned into jeans and sold in its original, raw and unwashed state, i. e. as RAW denim. The fabric's distinctive selvage edges become visible when, e. g. the pant legs are rolled up. Woven on old mechanical shuttle looms with a single weft that traverses the entire loom's width back and forth without a break, this particular weaving technique creates the above-mentioned characteristic "self-edge". The resulting edges are less prone to fraying than those created on more recent projectile looms. A classic selvage is usually fixed with colored threads - green, white, brown, yellow, or red - with red being the most common choice. What makes true selvage denim more expensive and exclusive is the slower output (and much narrower width) of traditional shuttle looms, making the entire process a lot more elaborate. For an exceptionally beautiful, individual "wash" of any raw denim or selvage jeans, experts recommend wearing the denim every day for 6-8 months straight before its first wash since this "fixes" the jeans' current state. After the first wash, the color no longer changes or does so only very slowly. Denim freaks even swear by never washing these styles at all - "just keep wearing them" is their declared motto. If at all, they recommend dry-cleaning their precious finds.
Denim care tips, tricks, and hints:
In order to enjoy the unwashed, rough look for a long time, we recommend that you only have these trousers cleaned! A machine wash is certainly possible, but it changes the raw, untreated character of the jeans - therefore it is better to not wash above 40° and to not use the spin cycle! Your denim will also thank you for gentle ironing (setting 2 or below). Turn inside out before laundry and wash with similar colors: Since our jeans are only lightly pre-washed to ensure a beautifully dark, blue hue, they can still lose some dye. This is absolutely normal - any dark blue denim will "bleed" for a while because long-lasting color requires several rounds in an indigo bath. This iconic dye, however, is not colorfast by nature, leading to the characteristic, natural aging process these fabrics are famous for. So, please take a little care when you are near light-colored fabrics, wallpaper, or bags. Your own body heat can also encourage color transfer to lighter clothing like underwear, socks, and shoes. All Rumble 59 jeans are manufactured from premium quality fabrics and according to the highest environmental standards. Absolutely no chemical additives or bleaching agents have been used in the process.
