The True Straight 18.5oz Super Heavyweight Selvage

BSJ103

In Stock.

Earlier this year we had the privilege of offering you rivet heads a stunning 14.5oz weight from Kuroki Japan but we only had enough for a very limited run and it sold out in a couple of days. Well this time we've upped the ante and have managed to score a similar quality but in an extra heavy 18.5oz which we obviously couldn't pass up. This fabric embodies all the characteristics we love in our raw selvedge denim. The face is highly textured with an open face weave that is coarse and dry to the touch. The yarn is really the secret weapon here as it is thick and ropey with a super low tension weave which is the key to achieving a selvage of this caliber. We've added a pic of the back of the fabric for you to check out the unevenness caused by the slow cooked, low tension weaving that can only be attained on a shuttle loom.

As for the indigo shade, that doesn't disappoint either. A dark indigo top with a slight green cast base that will become more apparent as the jean is worn and washed throughout the break in process. The sulfur green cast gives off a subtle 'aged' aesthetic right out of the gate and in addition to the indigo shade the denim will acquire a third color dimension as a natural patina is worked into the yarns over the weeks and months of wear and tear. We look forward to seeing the fades you Rivet Heads are able to pull off with this quality!

Not to be ignored is the very unique triple stripe, red-white-red selvage iD. Overall, this is a superb specimen of high quality weave-manship.   

We are super pumped to offer this to you at only $118.00

    SIZING CHART

      

    The comparison to LEVI'S fit styles is merely a reference point for those unfamiliar with how our jeans fit since there is no industry sizing standard. Most people have at some point in their lives owned a pair of LEVI'S and is the greatest common fit denominator when trying to gauge jean sizing. Our pattern blocks are unique to Brave Star and have been developed and fine tuned over the years with our head pattern maker and could feel completely different on your body in comparison to a pair of LEVI'S due to fabric weight & composition. One other factor to keep in mind is that the single pair of LEVI'S that we purchased here in Los Angeles to measure and feature on our size chart is not necessarily indicative of how that same style of LEVI'S fits on you when you purchased it since we have found quite a large variance in their sizing depending on where the jean was manufactured, the weight of the fabric and the wash applied to the jean.                                        

    Fit Model is wearing size 31 in all fits.

    Please allow for a +/- 1/4" tolerance in the waistband vs listed spec.
