Fabric Type : Made of a 100% Zimbabwe grown cotton, unlined, single-ply, non-stretch, pre-washed (one-washed) 14.7 Oz. medium weight Japanese selvage deep blue indigo denim, that features a right-hand twill construction with sanforization, anti-twist and singeing in the finishing process. Sanforized, singed and unti-twist process will help reduce shrinkage, reduce hairy fibers on the denim surface, and minimize twisting. Indigo yarn of this denim is dyed using the rope-dyeing technique. The outside of the yarn, which is repeatedly dyed using the indigo rope-dyeing technique, is dyed a deep indigo color, while the core of yarn does not absorb much dye and remains white. And the outside of indigo colored yarn fades through repeated wear and washing and the white core of yarn becomes more prominent. As a result, the high contrast between the faded blue and the white core gives a classic worn-in denim look. And this denim fabric is processed by singeing (gassing) to remove the hairy fibers on the surface. And this denim is woven by the vintage shuttle loom. As a result, the denim features a rugged, slubby and neppy look that have a rough texture like the denims of vintage workwear which cannot be replicated by any other contemporary industrial looms. The denim is even tough, yet it remains a natural softness for comfort. A white/pink line selvedge details ID can be seen along the interior placket. This jacket is washed once. Pre washed, minimal shrinkage. And the more you wear, the more denim will fade beautifully.
