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.
Another solid quality from the now defunct legendary American Mill. We have been preaching over the years about Cone's blue collar roots and how they invented the denims that built this country. Mid weight with a shade that we've coined 'Blue Ridge' for obvious reasons. A selvage such as this would not have been out of place during the golden era of American jean production which was a period after the Great Depression and before the 1960's. With a timeless workwear aesthetic this is a denim that is able to be worn year round. 3x1 Right Hand Twill weave with a ring spun warp.
