Slim Fit Selvedge Made In USA Jean in Bleachout Wash

Rated 4.0 out of 5
Based on 1 review

LIMITED EDITION: Our denim comes in distinct categories (Stretch, Selvedge and Small Batch), for the same reason that sometimes you want an artisanal sipping whiskey, and others a draft beer. The Made in USA Selvedge is our most premium jean, what we call Small Batch Denim. Created in partnership with denim guru Eric Goldstein, whose credits include Jean Shop and RRL, it’s woven at Vidalia Mills in Vidalia, Louisiana. 

Vidalia is quickly becoming famous among aficionados for its “farm-to-yarn” denim as the cotton is locally grown, then woven on Vidalia's Draper looms, many of which were acquired from the late mythic White Oak Plant in Greensboro, North Carolina. It takes about two hours for each of these machines to weave enough fabric for one pair of jeans. The denim is rope-dyed in genuine indigo and then cut and sewn in Los Angeles.

This is the denim equivalent of cutting a soul album at Muscle Shoals.

The Bleachout Knee Jeanrecreates the marbling, whiskering and wear patterns of a favorite pair of jeans. The original color of the selvedge fabric was a rich indigo, but in real denim the blue color sits near the surface and wears away over time revealing the white fabric beneath and creating the ghostly outlines on a pocket of where the owner kept his iPhone.  On this pair there are fades meant to simulate the creases that workers’ jeans developed back when a pair was ironed over the weekend for a fresh start on Mondays. Other simulated wear-and-tear details: indigo pools around the waist, an abraded pocket  and roping along the chain-stitched hems. Much of the detail work on these jeans is done by hand using sandpaper and a Dremel tool.Classic design details include antique copper rivets, chain stitching on the coin pocket, a suede-embossed patch on the back and TS embroidery on the wearer’s right side. This is the perfect jean for someone who is looking for an heirloom without the time or hard-living to make one. 

The fit is slim through the hip and thigh, with a tapered leg that has a 14-inch circumference. The jean will be a little stiff and maybe even a tad snug when you firstlpino wear it, but it will mold to your body and loosen up overtime. Or as Goldstein says, “You’ve got to earn that fit.”

Distinctions on Bleachout Wash

I've been searching for a a solid, lighter wash pair of denim so was excited to see TS release a "bleach out wash in the small batch. I also ordered the bleach out wash in the stretch selvedge. The two are substantially different in wash. On the tags they actually read "Bleach Out Knee - Lakeside Wash" and "Bleachout Knee - Petrol Blue," respectively. I wish TS made some of these distinctions in the copy on the website to help online shoppers. The small batch bleach out definitely is closer to my "Vintage Faded Indigo Wash" selvedge. The stretch selvedge definitely wins on the bleach out wash front. PS this is my first time getting hands on a small batch pair and the quality in tryin on the two (despite the stretch factor) is pronounced
