The Slim Taper 11.75oz 'Old Glory' Cone Mills Stretch Selvage

We were very fortunate to pick up a small lot of this Cone Mills stretch selvage in January with a very distinctive Red, White & Blue iD which we have dubbed 'Old Glory' for obvious reasons. This was a special development that didn't see much production and this is the first and only time we've ever offered this quality. Unfortunately, the lot was so limited that we only had enough for 75 pairs so this is a true micro lot. Despite Cone's history and focus on heritage denims, they were surprisingly progressive and developed some outstanding technical selvages (anyone lucky enough to get a pair of their selvage Cordura can attest to that) and excelled at producing stretch selvage that not only retained its shape but looked authentic at the same time. This was due to their unique and patented 'S' Gene Technology which they managed to run on their old Draper X looms (no small feat). The stretch filament is wrapped in cotton so there is no shine on the face of the cloth which is characteristic of weaving Lycra in with the cotton. The shade is a super dark indigo which is a bonus as Cone mostly focused on workwear shades truer to their heritage. Don't sleep on this one denim heads.
