All About The Black Straight by Doublewood Denim
Look: Contemporary straight cut jeans for everyday work and casual wear. Great for virtually any occasion and the jeans will fade very nicely.
Fit: The fit is straight with a medium rise and a slightly tapered straight leg.
Sizing: The denim shrinks about 3%. Please refer to the size chart to find your size.
Construction: See all the details of these classic five-pocket jeans in the box to the right.
*The thread is made with continuous filament polyester core and cotton staple wrap, which is 40-50% stronger than typical spun polyester thread.
**The relatively slim 0.5” hems are chain-stitched at 9 spi with a vintage Italian sewing machine with differential step speed. Although the roping on a Union Special 43200G is more distinguishable, Doublewood promises that the hems will rope with wash and wear. The choice of not using a Union Special was conscious: to Doublewood, using the relatively fragile 43200G for full-scale production doesn’t justify the additional overhead (which in the end means a higher retail price) and their chain stitch provides an almost identical result.
Fabric: Sanforized 13.75oz. raw redline Japanese selvedge denim. 100% cotton. Rope dyed in dark charcoal black.
Fabric: The black denim that Doublewood use is a sanforized 13.75 oz. raw redline selvedge from Kaihara. It’s made in Japan from 100% cotton, which is rope dyed to a dark charcoal black. The weft is undyed like with indigo denim. Doublewood purchase the denim directly from the mill. This enables them to guarantee fabric quality and assure that the hue stays relatively consistent from batch to batch.
Trim: The jeans feature selvedge trim at right back pocket. The 8 oz. vegetable tanned English bridle top grain leather patch is made in Italy. The engraved flat copper-based nickel-plated rivets are punched through 14 ligne (9 mm) burrs. All hardware is sourced from a local Hong Kong based metal shop, which the workshop relied on for a decade. The metal shop’s credentials include Intertek Eco-Certification and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification.
Made in: The jeans are handcrafted in Zhongshan City inside the Guangdong Province in Southern China. The makers are a small family owned business with over 30 years of experience in denim-making. Due to Doublewood’s intricate details and high standard in quality control, each enthusiastic tailor can only make three pairs from start to finish per day.
Limited Edition: For Batch 02, 165 pairs of the Straight (Black) with the specifications above were made and each is hand-stamp numbered and silk screen printed on the pocket bag with information about the batch.
The jeans come delivered in a 10 oz. un-primed printed canvas bag, which comes in handy when you need to travel without your heavily worn and unwashed jeans.
