Genuine Goods Italian Selvedge Jean
Throughout our 50 years in business the world of denim has changed dramatically, transforming from weekend-only wear into, perhaps, the most worn item in most wardrobes. As denim became more relevant to the modern world, the quality in both construction and fabric declined steadily and the ability to mass-produce this type of garment seemed imperative to the survival of the entire denim industry.
When we came across a small workshop that hand-crafts each pair, we knew that we were onto something special. Based in Richmond, Virginia, their process takes a little over two hours per pair (compared to 17 minutes, the industry average). We're excited to present our Genuine Goods selvedge jean.
Made with incredible Italian selvedge denim from Candiani with very little branding, this minimal design lets the fit and fabric do all the talking. The fit is just about perfect, a slightly slimmer straight leg with a generous rise, it feels just as good as a dress trouser. We've washed these once to take out any shrinkage and to really show off the character, quality and feel of the denim. We think they're great with a cotton sportcoat and spread collar sport shirt, but equally at home with boots and a field jacket. The no-frills design really lends itself to versatility and as you wear and wash, the denim will fade and break-in, becoming unique to the wearer.
Once you give these a try, we know you'll love 'em just as much as we do.
Contemporary Fit - Not too trim, nor too full. We recommend taking your usual size.
