“Many brands from all over the world now produce raw jeans specifically for women. Only a few of those jeans are made from selvedge denim, though. Men’s jeans are cut with a straight outseam, whereas women’s jeans are typically cut with a curve so as to provide a better fit. This makes it hard to cut women’s jeans along the straight edge and keep the selvedge.”
We’ve been oogling over the Samurai Jeans Kakishibu-Dyed 24 Oz. S5000KA that just hit the market—an incredible rose-hued jean with a unique dye process. Rawr Denim explains, “For this special denim, Samurai Jeans used an original 24 Oz. denim that has been hand-dyed with Kakishibu, an all natural dye fermented from the juice of unripe persimmions. Interestingly enough, according to Blue In Green, it’s the very first time a denim this heavy has been dyed with Kakishibu.”
These babies ring in at $725 and you can score a pair at Blue In Green.
