This is our last 13.5oz weight from Cone and we're more than pumped to have these on the shelves. Why? Quintessential working class American selvage denim. The kind that built this country and personified the term 'blue collar worker'. Before open end yarn took over in the 70's (low cost way of spinning yarn) all denim was woven with ring-ring yarn (time consuming and costly). Double ring spun yarn (or ring-ring yarn) means that both the warp and weft are ring spun. This is the traditional and more expensive way to weave denim and it produces the strongest and highest quality selvage bar none.This is why denim back in the day had such durability and could be used for most manual labor work. The indigo is one of Cone's darkest shades called Shade 18. Combined with the ring-ring yarn there is virtually no 'grin thru' from the weft yarn at all. Solid 3 x1 RHT. This is a quality that won't quit and is just perfect to take a year round beating. American selvage at its finest. Red selvage iD.

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. Wear it over a white tee shirt or under a vintage leather jacket, its hard to go wrong with this iconic garment.
