Size: 30, Length of Wear: 9 months, How Many Washes: 1
First off, sorry about the gritty quality of the pics. I’m afraid it doesn’t get any better with an iPhone.
1 ocean soak.
The denim is 19oz Kurabo denim from Japan. The jeans are made in Sweden. Leather for the super thick patch is produced in Tärnsjö, Sweden. I’ve been wearing these jeans since april 2012 and I LOVE THESE JEANS! These are the best pair of raw denim I’ve come across so far. Every single detail is well thought out, like the buttons in the fly, which are sown on instead of hammered. Sown with kevlar thread from DuPont. It’s fibers are 5 times stronger than steel. The selvage lining is yellow/yellow on the right leg and yellow/blue on the left. Only interlock and chainstitch seams used. Additional details are:
- triple stitching on yoke and inseam
- chain stitched hems
- reinforcement inside the back pockets, double bartack on the stress points of the back pockets
- genuine copper rivets mounted by hand (by Per-Ivan Hagberg himself)
- V-shape back belt loop
- a hidden iPhone pocket inside the left front pocket.
Sincere thanks and serious respect to Per-Ivan Hagberg for making these jeans. Rest in peace.
