Our 'Unfinished' selvage stock that we got from Cone when they closed up shop has finally run dry. If you've never had the opportunity to grab a pair of this quintessential heritage denim then we encourage you to do so now. Unless we're lucky enough to acquire deadstock in the future consider this to be the last drop.
CONE MILLS R.I.P 1905 - 2017
On Oct 18th 2017, Cone Mills announced that after 112 years in business they would be officially ceasing all production and operations and permanently close the White Oak plant in North Carolina as of Dec 31st 2017. Cone is the oldest operating denim mill in the world and is the last to weave selvedge denim in the US.
Owning a pair of Cone Mills selvedge denim woven at the White Oak plant will not only be a badge of honor but a necessary addition to any serious or aspiring denim heads collection. Do not miss this opportunity to add this quality to your rotation while supplies last.
Cone is well known for putting out consistent, hard wearing selvage - the kind that built this country and made the term 'Blue Collar' synonymous with American selvage so when they the veer slightly off their chosen path its usually with spectacular results and none more so than this 14oz. The character of this quality is of a rough, open weave with a slight crosshatch and plenty of inconsistencies due to the low tension weave. The uniqueness is the visible hairiness on the face thats achieved by skipping the final finishing process known as singeing or gassing of the fabric where the denim is passed over a controlled gas flame. A classic red selvage iD is the perfect choice for this All American classic.
