(The jean weighs over 5lbs!)
Only 140 pairs of these were made. Too hard to sanforize, the denim is unsanforized so please size up 1 from your normal Weird Guy size if pre-soaking. Fabric was made in Okayama on vintage shuttle looms and was unimaginably hard to produce that it will never be made again
. It uses a 1" x 1.5" thick yarn which is the same used to make carpet. It took 3 people to make 2 pairs per day.

Selvedge denim is a rare vintage fabric made on old school shuttle looms that were originally patented around 1924. The edges of the fabric are sealed close during the weaving process creating a „self edge“, hence the term „selvedge denim“. Selvedge denim is typically heavier, more durable and of superior quality than other denims. It is also far more expensive and difficult to produce this fabric and to maintain these rare and early machines. The cotton yarn is also dyed in a unique process called Long Chain Dyeing, which is much more time consuming and tedious than other methods, but the result is a deeper indigo color and unique touch.
