2-Month Road Test Review Of oneculture’s Pulsar Slim Taper

 In Apparel

It Is Wash Day At Rope Dye And We’re Not Happy

Four spring and summer months, no washes, no soaks and the bathtub is running. Luke warm water, a liberal shake of cooking salt, a quick squirt of detergent and we are good to go. How thoroughly depressing is that?

These oneculture Pulsar Slim Tapers have selflessly donated some sixty days’ service, but it’s hot in the city and Her Majesty has spoken.”Wash. Them. Now.”

It’s always the case. The more you fall in love with a pair of jeans, the harder it becomes to peel them off and commit them to the tub, and these Pulsars fall firmly into that category. From the first day, they have always been “just right.”


The Fit And The Build

Made in California by Mark Carter’s oneculture boutique brand, they are expertly tailored from a 14.5 oz., double redline, slub selvedge from Japan’s seminal Kuroki Mills. To the touch though, they do feel heavier – sixteen or even eighteen ounces – but the hand is soft, smooth, tight and luxurious, as it should be in a $230 premium quality jean.

The fit is on the slimmer side of a Slim Taper with a snug thigh which drops from the knee to the hem with a taper of approximately 2 cm.

The 38″ in-seam goes on forever. That’s great news for taller guys or anyone with a Union Special 43200G sewing machine lying around. For the rest of us, a double- or triple-cuff looks totally dope.
