Don't we all wish we could travel back in time? Back to the time when wearing jeans was still an expression of rebellion and rock'n'roll, when denim trousers were so sturdy that heavy mining and gold digging couldn't stop them. But not everything's bad today, so it shouldn't be a one-way ticket, huh? I mean, look at these jeans for example. With its sturdy and unwashed 15.5 oz. Blue Selvage Denim, they will handle the bumpiest trip without damage. That's why we conclude with rocking wise words from ZZ-Top: Lookin' high and low, don't know where to go, I got to double back, my friend!

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.
