A dark, pure indigo with a semi slubby yarn weighing in at a solid 15oz which in our opinion is the sweet spot between a medium and heavy weight. This is selvedge denim at its finest. In order to obtain the required deep shade of blue color the ropes (yarn) are immersed 5 – 6 times in a sequence of dye boxes with an oxidation range – so called skying – after each dye box. Having passed the dyeing and oxidation range the ropes are guided through 2 or 3 washing boxes to wash off excessive dye. In the last box softener is added to ease the opening of the ropes. They are dried in a series of cans. This is an extremely labor intensive dyeing method. There is no substitute for denim of this caliber. Woven in Japan by one of the most storied denim mills in the world and guaranteed to satisfy even the most jaded denim head. Sleep on this at your own peril...
The Ironside Trucker:

The silhouette is straight on the body with armholes and sleeves designed for maximum mobility and comfort, featuring a total of six exterior/interior pockets incl. side welted, hand warmer pockets that offer style and functionality.
