The True Straight 12.5oz Cone Mills 'Summer' Selvage


A lot of attention is often given to the heavier weight qualities but that doesn't mean the lighter weights should be overlooked. Any serious denim head should have a couple of lighter weight options in their rotation quiver. As with our previous light weight qualities we sourced this from the notorious Cone Mills and was one of the last lightweight qualities we bought from them before they closed the White Oak plant down. We can confidently say that Cone has mastered selvedge in these type of weights and often go deep into their 120 year library for inspiration. 

The shade is a stunner  - dark with some sulphur. The unevenness of slub yarns allow just the right amount of grin thru from the weft that offset the indigo from becoming to overwhelmingly saturated on the face. The construction is a solid 3 x 1 right hand twill that still takes a beating despite its lighter weight. 

This a weight that you can rarely go wrong with. We consider this a year round denim for those that don't live in extreme weather conditions. This selvedge is great for first timers wanting a weight that is all about wearability as well as seasoned denim heads looking for options that represent authentic American selvedge. 

TRUE STRAIGHT is our most generous fit, with room thru the low hip, thigh, knee and a bottom opening that accommodate most boots.
