Just Launched! The Tapered Selvage Chino
We have just released a very limited run of our brand new Tapered Chino in authentic 8.8oz Cramerton selvage army cloth for Pre Order starting today July 14!
What exactly is Cramerton Army Cloth?
Cramerton’s famous 8.8oz “Army khaki” was first manufactured in 1929. Major Stuart W. Cramer, Jr. an officer in the US Army strongly influenced the decision to develop an improved fabric for military uniforms. Developed out of necessity after the failure of the “doughboy” uniforms used by the military in World War I, Cramerton Army Cloth became the standard basic uniform cloth throughout the armed forces. This fabric saw service through World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
At the beginning of World War II, Cramer voluntarily released the technical know-how to allow other producers to duplicate his fabric as “Cramerton Army Cloth”. It is still being produced in South Carolina by the original mill.
The pricing on these is exceptional and we have never seen this cloth available at the price we just released it at - so head on over to the Pre Order page and find out what we have been working on for the past couple months!

Thanks to the folks over at Men's Journal for bringing the good news to the uninitiated that investing in a top quality, American Made, raw selvedge denim jacket doesn't have to cost a small fortune.
Brave Star Selvage
The Ironside 14oz Selvedge Denim Jacket
Fourteen ounces is a heavier weight for denim lovers who truly enjoy a lengthy break-in period. But that extra heft is worth the work out and the less polished look of the the non-gassed fabric will only get better with age. The jacket was designed with a straight fit and sleeves that move better than most, so you won’t feel tied down while you’re breaking it in.
Thanks once again to The Denim Hound for featuring and reviewing our new Cone Mills unfinished 14oz in the Regular Taper fit.
Fit: Regular Taper. A roomy top block and thighs with a strong taper down the leg.
Measurements (size 32): Waist 35″, rise 10.5″, back rise 15.2″, hip 19″, seat 19.6″, thigh 12″, knee 8.25″, hem 6.7″, inseam 37″. 1.5″ shrinkage on the waistband, 2″ on the inseam.
Fabric: 14oz 100% cotton, unfinished/un-singed sanforized selvedge denim from Cone Mills, White Oak. Right hand twill with a greycast to the indigo warp and white weft. This has to be one of the most character rich Cone denims I have ever seen. Very hairy with a good amount of nep. This denim also has very small, sporadic slub yarns in the warp and weft. It feels almost like an unsanforized denim. Cone denim usually has a tight weave using high tension yarns. This denim however, has a looser than usual weave, with medium tension yarns.
BRAVE STAR SELVAGE GOING ULTRA HEAVYWEIGHT
Thanks to The Denim Hound for the review on the 21.5oz ultra heavyweight. Greg has a keen eye for all things indigo and has probably reviewed more selvedge denim than anyone else on this planet. Check it out here www.thedenimhound.com and give him a follow on his social channels.
