CONE MILLS R.I.P 1905 - 2017
On Oct 18th 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.
A Cone Mills 14oz that was a one off, exclusive item that was not available in their regular stock collection. This 14oz has a visible 'hairiness' on the face that's 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.
